The roots of climate change denial in Russia

Climate change is a politicized issue in many countries. In Russia, the government denies the anthropogenic causes of global warming, and is unwilling to curb greenhouse gas emissions. Unlike in most other countries, the Russian public discourse also highlights positive effects of climate change. Dmitry Yagodin, Postdoc at the University of Helsinki?s Aleksanteri Institute, has been studying the Russian climate discourse and traces the roots of climate change denial at the national and regional levels. In his current work, he focuses on the case of Yamal, the arctic region in northwest Siberia, where the flagship of Russia?s fossil fuel industry is built on frozen ground that is beginning to melt.

We invite you to join us for a breakfast meeting and discussion with Dmitry Yagodin and Konstantin Kaminskij (Humboldt Universität zu Berlin), chaired by Nina Frieß (ZOiS).
