This report may lead some of us to rethink our position on this issue.

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Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.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



Oh, wait.

Please accept my apology ... I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post - 93 years ago.
 
This must have been caused by the Model T Ford's emissions



This particular version comes from an email, but there are a number of references to it on Bing, including a recognition from Snopes which, with its usual Leftist bias, states it's true but irrelevant to today's discussion as it referred to a localized phenomenon.

I instinctively checked Snopes as this story had ALL the scents of an email hoax, but yes, it passed!

Claim: A 1922 newspaper article reported that "radical change in climatic conditions" was melting Arctic ice and disrupting wildlife.

TRUE

And that makes it quite significant! This story has legs!

I'm going to start promoting it around.
