Global Warming

Global Warming

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 Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of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, 90+ years ago.
