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Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.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 coastal cities uninhabitable.
"For someone with a PHD your grammar and sentence structure is very poor. For someone with a PHD your obsession with two aspects of "measurement" (co2 and temperature) is very unscientific.

if all this is known, then why is there such ambiguity with the models as opposed to reality? Why don't we know EXACTLY what will happen when? Is there any chance at all that every factor involved in this process isn't fully accounted for? Is there any chance at all that something new will be discovered and possibly change the thinking on any of this?
