Rainbows over the taiga

Two rainbows over the taiga outside Iengra. 65 percent of Russia's landmass is constantly frozen, but as the temperatures in the ground increase the permafrost is beginning to thaw. The frozen grounds contain large amounts of carbon locked in the ice and as it melts these gases are being released into the atmosphere.
