....Yes, the Capslock reversal was'll see......

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Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.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

Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt
the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.

Oops! Never mind. This report was from November 2, 1922, as
reported by the Associated Press and published in the Washington Post
- 88 years ago.....

Fresh as the headlines from today....

Great post!

In the Seventies we were all going to freeze to death, and darn near did. That's one thing about weather... it changes. The real scientists, that I believe in, said that global warming would end in 2010. There seems to be some truth in that.

Good find, Dr. Wollf!
