    Climate Warmers Nightmare


    The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer, and in
    warm
    grounds
    some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a
    report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulate, 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.

    Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and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

    Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea
    will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.

    I must apologize. I neglected to mention that this report was from
    November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The
    Washington Post – over 94 years ago.

    This must have been caused by the Model T Ford's emissions or possibly from horse and cattle flatulence?

    From Snopes:

    As interesting as this nearly century-old article might be from a modern perspective, however, it isn’t substantive evidence either for or against the concept of anthropogenic global warming. As documented elsewhere, the warming phenomena observed in 1922 proved to be indicative only of a local event in Spitzbergen, not a trend applicable to the Arctic as a whole.

    Sounds like local event, just cause Snopes says so? Got it...

    Sounds more like a delusional poster posting stuff by a typical over exaggerating reporter.
    That you think what a reporter said in 1922 has some bearing on the accuracy of modern science just tells us that you typically depend on sources such as facebook for your information.

    One would think you would have learned your lesson when you discovered that Obama did go to school, but it seems you were totally unfazed by that discovery.

    Someone at some point was wrong about something? That must mean other people were wrong as well. Let's just give up trying to learn anything about the world.

    The subtly intoned message is decidedly not anti-science, but rather, firmly and emphatically true and pure science.
    One which does not travel further or faster than the light allows.

    This Doomsday narrative regarding this world's resources has been trotted out so many times, one could set their calendar by it.
    Calendar of decades, not months.

    And they're still working it today!
