The latest round of talks before the meeting in Copenhagen in November in Barcelona. In Russia will be implemented six projects on energy efficiency projects in six energy efficiency and conservation will be approved on the basis of the joint meeting of the on modernizing and technological development of economy of Russia and the Presidium of the Presidential Council for Science, Technology and Education. The first draft of 'Count, saving and pay' is associated with the installation of meters and regulators electricity, which will enable economical use of energy willing to pay less. The second project 'New World' involves the installation of energy efficient lighting devices, such as replacing incandescent light bulbs energy-efficient lighting device. The third project 'Energy efficiency block' envisages modernization of entire neighborhoods and towns and replicating their experience in the future throughout the country. The fourth project involves the installation of energy efficient technologies in state institutions, primarily in clinics, schools and hospitals. The fifth project 'Low energy complex' includes the production and introduction of energy efficient equipment for the local energy. The sixth project 'Innovative Energy "provides for the implementation of breakthrough projects related to superconductivity, the use of biofuels.

The number of species on Earth has reached 1.9 million according to revised data, the number of species on our planet, known to science, has reached 1.9 million species. A list of all known plants and animals of the Earth for the last three years increased by 114 thousand new species. Scientists who made up for the Australian Government's report 'The number of living beings in the world', argue that this is the most complete catalog of plants and animals of the planet. In total, an estimated report's authors, lives on Earth 11 million species of living beings, but many of them disappear before they both will be detected. For example, Australia has identified that continent's 147 579 species of plants and animals, but scientists estimate that there are about 500 000 species, while not found and not identified by science. Minister for the Environment Peter Garrett, Australia noted that the refinement of the list of species of plants and animals will improve efforts to protect endangered species on the planet.

In addition, biologists from the University of Adelaide found more than eight hundred previously unknown species of invertebrates that live in groundwater and caves arid and semiarid regions of Australia. According to researchers, it is only about twenty percent of all species of animals living underground, who moved there as a result of climate change. New species spiders, fish and crustaceans, related to stigma and troglofaune almost totally blind, and lack of pigmentation on the verge of extinction. Scientists believe that the care of these invertebrates to the surface due to climatic changes that occurred in South and Central Australia, about 15 million years ago. Reduce humidity was the reason why many species of invertebrates that live on the surface, sought refuge in mikropescherah and groundwater that are more favorable to their existence, contributing to their survival and development.
