    As reported in 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 US 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    "Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.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 apologies. I neglected to mention.
    This report was from November 2, 1922, as reported and published in The Washington Post 97 years ago. This must have been caused by the Model T Ford's emissions or possibly from horse and cattle flatulence.

    I wish I were around a few billion years from now when the sun engulfs the earth as it will when it goes to red giant stage. I bet there will still be some democrats out there trying to blame whichever republicans are left for it.
    We have met the enemy and he is us... POGO

    You don't think humanity will have destroyed itself by then?

    Live as if you were living a second time, and as though you had acted wrongly the first time.

    Humanity, or whatever it has evolved into, will have either destroyed itself, gone digital, or left the planet by then.

    Interesting story I read once said that humans could download consciousness into something and export it into a black hole of to the surface of a neutron star and survive in that form for nearly eternity. There is also another interesting theory that we may already be existing inside the event horizon of a black hole. It is impossible to know what humanity will evolve into or be capable of a thousand years from now. Already, there are millions living inside their phones and computers.
