Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that man-made climate change is a hoax, perpetuated by Western governments and corporations to make a profit.
According to Putin, icebergs in the Arctic have been melting for decades, which he says proves the global warming is a natural phenomena.
"The warming, it had already started by the 1930s," Putin said at an Arctic forum held in the northern Russian city of Arkhangelsk.
"That's when there were no such anthropological factors, such emissions, and the warming had already started."
The Kremlin strongman added: "The issue is not stopping it … because that's impossible, since it could be tied to some global cycles on Earth or even of planetary significance. The issue is to somehow adapt to it."
Putin supported his argument by saying that an Austrian explorer who had a "photographic memory" visited the Franz Josef Land archipelago "in the 1930s."
