This 1971 National Geographic map showed the ice edge about the same location as this summer. Experts say that Walrus can’t survive this, and must have gone extinct.

    “Experts” like the New York Times has it seems. Experts with out a clue. “National Geographic” = propaganda with pretty pictures.

  2. There is no substitute for victory. says:

    What would doom the Walrus is if the Artic ever freezes solid and remains in this frozen state. Walrus depend on an Arctic that freezes and then defrosts because this drives the annual Walrus migration from the Bearing Sea into the high Artic caving grounds and then back again every year before freeze up. This also allows the Northern and Southern feeding grounds to rest and regenerate between intensive periods of Walrus exploitation.

    I thought it was in ’67 along with Paul… Goo goo g’joob.

    James Bond lived twice
    Osama died twice
    Why shouldn’t walrussians be allowed to go extinct two times?

    (and i don’t dare to guess how much global warming and co2 “2x walrus went extinct” have caused.)

  7. Years ago there used to be a popular TV quiz show where contestants were asked to identify a hit song from just the initial notes. In a similar vein, can we determine who were the authors of these famous quotes in “Name that Scientist”?

    • Gail Combs says:

      That cartoon needs to have this newest scientist added for the icing on the cake:

      The BBC had a recent program where professor Mike Lockwood said. “There’s a 20 percent probability that we could be back in Maunder conditions within 40 years.”

      The video ends with this:

      “On the one hand you’ve got, perhaps, a cooling sun, but on the other had you’ve got human activity that can counter that.”

      “So even if the planet as a whole continues to warm, if we enter a Maunder Minimum the future for northern Europe could be cold and frozen winters for decades to come.”

      H/T to IceAgeNow
