Global Warming.

This might prove to be serious........


The Washington Post :
The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer
and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according
to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulafft, at
Bergen, Norway.

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers all point
to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard of
temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that
scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.

Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream
still very warm.

Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth
and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known
glaciers have entirely disappeared.

Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern
Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never
before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal
fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the
ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.

I apologize, I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post - 89 years ago.
