This should be seen in conjunction with the temperature in Vehojansk, also in Siberia, where they had a heatwave with air temperatures measuring 38 degrees C.By A Greener Life - A Greener World

The European Union’s (EU) Competition Commissioner, Margrethe Vestager, has in recent years become world-famous in her drive to deliver the biggest fines to the world’s largest tech giants to date.
Last week she delivered the closing speech at one of the world’s largest tech gatherings, the Web Summit held annually in Lisbon, Portugal.
Commissioner Vestager was keen to underline that she is pro-technology but that it has to be used democratically, and if it is done correctly it can have enormous potential. She explained that she sees no limit to the possibilities of artificial intelligence (AI), and to the support, it can give to what we want to do as humans.
