Climate Change…

Dear Editor,

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

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hithertoheard of temperatures in the Arctic zone.

Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 deg, 29min.

Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.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

This report was from Nov. 2, 1922 as reported by the AP and published in the Washington Post 95 years ago!

There has always been climate change, and there will always be climate change, and throwing untold trillions of taxpayer money at trying to stop climate change won’t calm Mother Nature down a bit
