Global Warming! It’s True I Think…….

Subject: Global Warming

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 Consul Ifft, 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 Great masses of ice have been replaced by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’m sorry, I neglected to mention that this report was from

November 2, 1922 as reported by the AP and published in The

Washington Post.
