NO! I was NOT aware that Russia was a northern country. I always thought of it as a place where mail order brides go to meet their American dream boy for 10 yrs.

That was a ruse to dump their flawed individuals and have them fly to a country where they could better express their cultural-mental "character". Now they emptied their bimbo reserves and USan dream boys' only hope left are Iraq and IEDs. Sorry for the offtopic.

Water steam is not hazardous to health. This question was answered a million times already.

CO2 emission you are talking about is not seen on the photos.('LOL, wtf")
We were talking about the clouds produced by the smoke stacks.
These clouds consist of the water vapor, not smoke.

Come-on I am not sure about Sweden, but here in US people use natural gas for cooking. It's burned inside of houses... That's as good as it gets.

Why are you brining CO2 here though? It's not poisonous (it's dioxide not monoxide, hence number 2) and definetely not visible. By the way every time you exhale you produce CO2. Maybe you are confusing CO2 with something else?


In any case beautiful picture. Nice crisp winter day.
