Am vrut sa scriu mai multe cuvinte, dar… ce as putea spune mai mult?
Norilsk e un oras din Rusia: “In Norilsk, the air tastes sour from the sulphur fumes, and life expectancy for factory workers is 10 years below the Russian average.”
The Blacksmith Institute once included Norilsk in its list of the ten most polluted places on Earth. The list cites air pollution by particulates, including radioisotopes strontium-90, and caesium-137 and the metals nickel, copper, cobalt, lead and selenium; and by gases (such as nitrogen and carbon oxides, sulfur dioxide, phenols and hydrogen sulfide). The Institute estimates four million tons of cadmium, copper, lead, nickel, arsenic, selenium and zinc are released into the air every year.
Russia’s Federal State Statistics Service lists Norilsk as the most polluted city in Russia. In 2017, Norilsk produced 1.798 million tons of carbon pollutants—nearly six times more than the 304.6 thousand tons that was generated by Russia’s second-most polluted city, Cherepovets. Norilsk, the report states, decontaminates almost half of its emissions.
In 2011, several beautiful girls from Norilsk with sonorous golden voices started their musical career promoting Russian folk music. You can see them singing in squares, parks, memorials and even public transport.
