Climate change gives an unexpectedly powerful impetus to the development of Siberia. Especially for agriculture. The Northern climatic border of crops growing moves a distance of 70 km every 10 years! The favourable position of the large Siberian rivers - Ob, Yenisey and Lena - can easily provide ample irrigation. Siberia is developing.
However, there is a downside. Frequent floods seriously damage the infrastructure designed to exist in permafrost. Methane explosions dot the entire Siberia with perfectly round, giant holes. Fascinating, but hardly appealing to local residents.
