The Washington Post published an Associated Press article from the Commerce Department of Norway describing a catastrophic warming of the Arctic Ocean that caused the disappearance of glaciers and the loss of seals and fish.  The punchline is that the story was written in 1922 before “man-made” global warming was a guilt-inducing narrative. –GEG

The original source of the story resurfacing recently was from an Inside the Beltway column of August 14th, 2007. The newspaper article was located in the Library of Congress archives by James Lockwood.

Here is the text of the Washington Post (Associated Press) article:

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers, he declared, 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 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Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.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.

Hundreds of Moroccan Muslims flooded the streets of Brussels, breaking windows, looting, and starting fires.

These people came to riot, and it had nothing to do with soccer.] Local police stood by watching and did not make any arrests. […]
