LOL ... we're talking about global warming & the mayor of Moscow is trying to keep the snow out of the city to reduce snow-removal costs to the city. However, his cloud seeding to accomplish this may also have unanticipated effects on animals, Moscow's trees, and the areas which will receive the snow instead of Moscow.

The same day, explorers give their ice depth measurements indicating that the Arctic ice cap has continued to recede, and within 10 years the ice cap will nearly melt completely during the summer months; and within 20 to 30 years will melt completely during the Arctic summer.
