The attempt to change the Siberian climate was first revealed in the United States via a March 3,1958 article by William J. Perkins entitled “Soviets Plan Reversing Rivers, Melting Arctic to Warm Siberia” which appeared in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

“The vast arid, cold steppes of eastern Siberia is the home of a vast high-pressure system of intense cold air, called the Siberian High. Western scientists believe that if Russia is able to alter the character of the ground over which this high pressure system is located, the character of the air mass itself will change”. 

“Russia officially appears to share this view. In outlining, last August, a project now believed to be underway to divert the flow of two great Siberian rivers from the Arctic Ocean to form a vast inland sea among the arid steppes of central Asia, Moscow radio boasted: “Astonishing climatic changes would occur. . . evaporation (from the inland sea) would increase and with it the humidity of the air. The extremes of yearly and daily temperature characteristics of these would be greatly modified.” 

The rivers that would be diverted under the Russian plan announced that August were the Ob and Yenisei.

The Siberian High is associated with extreme low humidity and little snow from September until April. Right where this key weather system forms, Russia built a series of four “vast inland seas” between 1956 and 1967, two were on the Angara River, a tributary to the Yenisei; one on the Ob and another on the Irtysk, a tributary of the Ob.

According to NASA, “Increasing water vapor leads to warmer temperature, which causes more water vapor to be absorbed into the air. Warming and water absorption increase in a spiraling cycle.”

These four hydroelectric reservoirs, equivalent to vast inland seas, are not only generating electricity 24/7 but they are colossal human-made water vaporizers, which did not go unnoticed by the Siberians. The rapid increase in humidity levels and air temperatures were noted in a September 14, 1975 Miami Herald article by John Dornberg entitled, “Huge man-made lakes warming up Siberia:”…“Ten years after its completion… the Bratsk dam and others like it along the Angara have warmed up central Siberia by at least 10 degrees” and “In effect, what the Russians have done in their drive to industrialize Siberia and exploit its enormous wealth of raw materials is to create inland oceans which account for more rain, more humidity, less seasonal fluctuation in temperature and more frequent change in the weather.”

It took less than 20 years for the Soviets to successfully test their hypothesis on how to warm up Siberia. It is my hypothesis that even a reduction of global carbon emissions to net zero will have minimal impact, if any, on strengthening the Siberian High and reducing Arctic humidity and global warming fueled by these colossal water vaporizers.
