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ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report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, 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 or possibly from horse and cattle farts. I knew something
smelled about this story.
