The Icecaps are [still] melting

No matter if you're out there parked to that car along the highway
Or whether you're at home, sitting by the radio
Or whether you're having them good meals
Or whether you're by the TV set
Let everyone sing about those melting ice caps
how they're coming down into the sea
and let us all have a swimming time, as we sing;

The ice caps are melting
Oh, ho, ho ho
All the world is drowning
Ho, ho ho, ho ho
The ice caps are melting
the tide is rushing in
All the world is drowning
to wash away the sin


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 Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.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.

Oh dear, upon a second glance I find I must apologize.....

Now, it’s all been done before
It’s all been written in the book
But when there’s too much of nothing
Nobody should look

The neo Malthusian mentality is definitely cyclical in nature and only varies by the dimension and longevity of the mass insanity. Stay out of that asylum and please keep the gates and doors closed for your own protection...its like the Hotel California for the residents.

The wild-eyed predictions of the climate alarmist crowd come from the same people screaming, "B-but... Muh Russians!!"

Relax, it's all fake news. Here's NASA's chart of annual global temperatures, since 1880:

A show of hands, please: Does anyone see anything to panic about?


Didn't think so.
