Arctic Meltdown 1817


I doubt the climate change scientists will show you this one, so read it and weep.

Reblogged from:

“A considerable change of climate, inexplicable at present to us, must have taken place in the Circumpolar Regions, by which the severity of the cold that has for centuries past enclosed the seas in the high northern latitudes in an impenetrable barrier of ice has been, during the last two years, greatly abated . . . 2000 square leagues of ice with which the Greenland Seas between the latitudes of 74o and 80o N have been hitherto covered, has in the last two years, entirely disappeared . . . The floods, which have the whole summer inundated all those parts of Germany where rivers have their sources in snowy mountains, afford ample proof that new sources of warmth have been opened . . .”

Extracts from a letter by the President of the Royal Society to the British Admiralty, recommending they send a ship to the Arctic to investigate the dramatic ice reduction — in 1817. (Ref; Royal Society, London. Nov. 20, 1817. Minutes of Council, Vol. 8. pp.149-153.)
