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    Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.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

    If this does happen, I wish it would do it in a few minutes, taking out California and New York before the idiots can escape.

    The HCFC Freon Scare is different from the Global Warming Scare (AKA Greenhouse Effect).

    The HCFC Freon Scare declares that the HCFCs burn through our ozone layer, which filters (asorbs) most UV rays.

    I don't doubt the importance of the Ozone Layer, but I do doubt that HCFCs are damaging it, if it's damaged at all.

    But there is a lot of money to be made in banning certain refrigerants.

    R410a (HFC) will be phased out because of it's "Global Warming potential (allegedly 1725 times the effect of Carbon Dioxide).

    It's probably just a coincidence that some people are making a boatload of money in the process.

    Plus there's the Religious Value it has for the Left.

    I wouldn't worry. California will have seceded before then. I assume you'll be joining us in the U.S. when that happens?

    Yeah, last I heard, since we send more money to the feds than they give back to us, we will break away from the union and declare ourselves a sanctuary state. I think that is the latest from the fruit loops around here.

    I can't imagine that ending well. Not in war, but for CA being it's own 'country'. I doubt their economy could take it, especially with more and more immigrants flooding in.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    Does that mean if your convicted of a serious crime, the most they will sentence you is 10 years, as it doesn't matter after that.

    Truth be told, other states would probably supper more than we would. Due to all of the produce, other food, and money that we export.

    Sanctuary city? It means that if you are an illegal and get caught doing a crime you only spend 24 hours in jail then they let you go.

    Cal has a 2.3 trillion economy but if they are their own country they will not have enough electrical power to sustain it. They would not have an adequate source of drinking water.

    If California has such a great economy, then why is in debt almost 850 billion dollars?
