Climate report arctic

report arcticCrikey – it’s true then?

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 Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.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

Many old landmarks are so changed as to be unrecognizable. Where formerly great masses of ice were found, there are now often moraines, accumulations of earth and stones. At many points where glaciers formerly extended far into the sea they have entirely disappeared.

This is not new. It was reported on the 2nd November,1922 in the prestigious Washington Post. Below is the actual report.
global warming
A hundred years from now there will be clippings from Fairfax reporting how the world is doomed unless the world stops mining and burning coal.

The video below is a watchable and detailed conspectus of global warming, climate change, climate rage, irritable climate syndrome, global catastrophe.

And it now makes the world wonder what is the value of a Nobel Prize any more? The Peace Prize is a sickening joke, the Literature prize isn’t even a joke, so what can you make of the Nobel Prize for Physics?
