    Your latin is a little screwed up its mare librum, when you add a ending that's not nom masculine you drop the r then add it from there. Never mind the expression is late Latin

    The currency in Barentsburg is norwegian Krones, not russian ruble.
    at 4:01 you are showing a map and pictures form Pyramiden (another, now abandoned Soviet city ) but it is not Barentsburg.
    at 3:33 the colorful houses are in Longyearbyen, the norwegian capital of Svalbad.
    So not 100% accurate, always no exception.

    1:15 You say that Svalbard was discovered in the "Late 16th Century" and then here 2:50 you say "Russians have been in Svalbard as long as anyone somewhere between 1425 and 1675"

    You're using pictures of Pyramiden when talking about Barentzburg. Also it was the town of Pyramiden that the soviets used as a communist utopia, not Barentzburg. Pyramiden was a previously Swedish town that was, like Barentzburg, also purchased by the Soviet Union.

      Also they actually use the Norwegian Kroner in Barentzburg and not the Russian rubles

    Don't mean to sound like a smart-ass, but many of the pictures you show are actually of Pyramiden. It is another Russian mining town on the Svalbard archipelago that has been abandoned in the meantime. Furthermore, you don't even mention Longyearbyen or Ny Ålesund, both of which are permanent settlements with a largely Norwegian population.

    I don't think any sane person "denies" climate change. The climate on Earth is ALWAYS changing. Always has, always will. Pretty much all of Europe was once covered in ice. What many people don't agree with, and the science is not really conclusive regarding it, is that we HUMANS are responsible for the change in the last few centuries and that reducing CO2 emissions will reduce the rate of "change" (it used to be "global warming", but you know, sometimes it gets colder, so let's say "change" and it'll cover anything and keep our agendas).
