1947 Shock News : “Enormous” “Alarming” “Serious” “Catastrophic” Polar Melt To Drown The Planet. International Agency Needed To Study The Problem

Saturday 31 May 1947

Dr. Ahlmann added that temperatures in the Arctic have increased by 10 degrees Fahrenheit since 1900. An ‘enormous’ rise from the scientific standpoint. Waters in the Spitsbergen area, in the same period, have risen from three to five degrees in temperature, and one to one and a half millimetres yearly in level. ‘The Arctic change is so serious that I hope an international agency can speedily be formed to study conditions on a global basis.’ said Dr. Ahlmann. He pointed out that in 1910 the navigable season along the western Spitsbergen lasted three months. Now it lasts eight months.

Forty years later scientists told us that we were all going to freeze to death, and that we needed a commission to study it.

    As of dec 28, Cryosphere Today reports ice area anomaly of -1.2 million(?!!) square kms of ice. Does this seem really high to anyone? My eye shows roughly half of that when I look at NSIDC graphs. CT is a couple days behind but this number is odd to me.

    The article just goes to show that each generation has had it’s idiots , it’s just that now the idiots are in positions of power and rapidly destroying the country .

  3. Andy DC says:

    Climate charlatans have always been around. It is only recently that we have spent countless billions in response to their blatant lies and crazy end of the world notions.

  4. This Australian article seems to be derived from a New York Times article:

    Gladwin Hill, “Warming Arctic climate melting glaciers faster, raising ocean level, scientist says,” New York Times, May 30, 1947.

    I don’t have access to that article.
