This fall the black snow on the ground
"Here falls the black snow on the ground,"

"the People in the Russian city of Kuzbass has not got to celebrate a white christmas as the snow that falls over the city is polluted and toxic. "

"coal mines in the Kuzbass, or the ”Russian kolhjärta” as it is also called color the snow black. "

"Mines, which are open, gives off dust which yr around in the air. When it rains put out the dust on the ground and during the winter months will be the kolfyllda the air clearer still. "

"Environmentalists have protested for several years and after images of the black snow circulated on the social media, the criticism has grown stronger, according to The Guardian. "

"Activists argue that coal mines are too close to residential areas and criticised the fact that the coal is transported in open train that spreads soot formation during their journey. "

"Shorter life expectancy"

"– It's harder to find white than black snow here during the winter, " says Vladimir Slivyak, an environmentalist in Ecodefense who spoke with The Guardian. "

"the average life expectancy in Kuzbass is three to four years shorter than in the rest of the country. In addition, the incidence of cancer, cerebral palsy, and tuberculosis to be higher than it is nationally, the magazine writes. "

"– There is a lot of carbon in the air all the time. It's just that it becomes visible when the snow falls. You can't see it the rest of the year, but it's still there, " says Slivyak. "
