Russian Presidential Elections

Update: there is a new version that he will try to get re-elected as president on the 2012 elections.

With less than one year left for the election, president Putin is creating a personality cult for himself using the "free" mass media of Russia. In the past, however, on several occasions he stated that running for president for the third term is not in his plans and that it is against the Russian constitution. The newly created cult of personality is useless if he will not run for president. One of his announced future plans include heading of Gazprom, so the prediction is that he will rename Russia to Gazprom and declare himself as president.

Global Warming

There is no need for us to worry about global warming. The solution for the problem is trivial and will be solved when time comes. One possibility, for example, is using miniature flyers made of transparent film (sort of like umbrellas) to deflect the sunlight from earth: http://www.sciencenews.org/articles/20061104/fob2.asp
