BUNK!

I don't often vary off my stamping posts but I thought this little article was interesting and worth passing on to those who believe otherwise!  In the midst of 'global warming' outcries and myths, this is just another piece of information that tells us that we are just in a cycle.  Also, think about this.....Florida last week.....freezing weather.  Hmmmm.....doesn't sound like GW to me! 

US Weather Bureau Report


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 Consul Iffy, at Bergen , Norway .   Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers, he declared, all point to a radical change in climate conditions and there to unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.   Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met with 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 Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.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.

I’m sorry, I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922 as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post.

Thank you for my evening chuckle. My husband repeatedly (and I do mean repeatedly! *lol*) declares that the earth's climate is indeed cyclical ... we warm, we cool, etc. I read your post to him & we've sat here & chuckled away.

Glad to read this, my husband and I have been in complete agreement with this. A cycle that God intended!
