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 Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.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 smelt 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.
This troubling report can be read at the link below, in the US government's archives. It's in the archives because it's from 1922.

That is an ignorant assumption. The DailyCaller is junk site that publishes false/misleading stories and panders to the right wing base with stories worded to get emotional knee jerk reactions.
It also happens that those who deny the human impact on climate almost exclusively lean far right...climate change denial is being to sold to that base with apparent success.
Many cling to science denial with climate change because they are being played by puppet masters who want deregulation and exploitation instead of conserving our natural resources. Environmental protections and acknowledging anthropogenic climate change are mere road blocks for their profiteering.
