Default Global Warming Warning!

THIS REPORT SHOULD CLEAR UP ANY MISUNDERSTANDINGS ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE
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Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.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 coast cities uninhabitable.

I must apologize. I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, page 2, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 94+ years ago.

This must have been caused by the Model T Ford's emissions or possibly from horse and cattle flatulence.

Or a bunch of Democrats ranting about Republicans, and Vice Versa.

Super glue was invented in CA............and the dang fool who invented it poured all his failures at creating super glue down a crack called the San Andreas Fault, that's the only thing holding CA onto the rest of the country, obviously.

Sooner or later it will fail and CA will become an island, and then we'll be able to keep Kommiefornicans from coming to NV just by shooting holes in their boats as they try to come ashore from their island to our continent.

That's my story and I'm stickin to it.

So I should buy several thousand gallons of nail polish remover and pour it all over the fault?

Naw, the next gasoline, diesel or acetone pipeline spill in the area will take care of it nicely.

Curious if this was true or not and apparently it is, not that I didn't trust you.

Before I posted it, I went and looked for the original Washington post article, found it, and it read just as the post above does.

And by "I went and looked for the original' he means he went into his closet and looked for scrapbook number 2389490 which he put together in years 1920-1924. I am sure it brought back some nice memories.
