Hello! Thanks for the information. However, I believe that the theme and the results of these measures will not contribute to the appearance of at least a light of optimism. Moreover, I am convinced that the full picture – climate change and increase the risk for mankind – more than obvious – has long been depicted Secretary John Kerry in his speeches. In addition, long and carefully studying the prospects of the Conference of the OSCE in Vienna, Austria – October 28 beginning – I felt not only disappointed, but also received a slight depression … for two days. It is also convinced that any of the planned activities – from the list – will not be questioned about the active combat climate change. Moreover, … would not even be a question about the apparent tendency of tightening the impact of climate change on the area of residence of humanity … – especially in Eurasia and North America. Very sorry.
Yours faithfully, Dr. Vlad Fomin
