Global Warming - My God, We're all Doomed!
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 Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.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 by experts that due to ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable. Now, before you all say "OH MY GOD" and think about selling your home by the sea, please don't lose sleep, this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the Associated Press and published in the Washington Post - 89 years ago!!!!
I remember only too well, back in the 1970s, an episode of Tomorrows World focused on this and saying, wait for it - By 2020, the whole of east anglia is likely to be underwater and many other areas of England and Holland uninhabitable. Mmmm, well, we're almost there and I'm not sure if the sea has risen one millimetre, let alone the some 3 feet predicted by the "experts" in the programme.
There's a whole lot of money being made out of Global Warming, in fact, I'd think its one of the worlds biggest businesses right now but ultimately, its nothing but a perfect scapegoat for those experts who cannot quite explain something.
Our salmon are being affected by global warming! Yip, in the same way as they were being affected 90 or more years ago, after which, and interestingly, for a period after the war, they seemed to do just fine.
We live in strange and ever changing times!
