A pod of killer whales has become trapped in Arctic ice, taking turns breathing out of a small opening in the frozen water as Canadians brainstorm how to save the massive orcas.
The whales were discovered in the frozen pool in Hudson’s Bay on Tuesday by a hunter from the nearby Quebec village of Inukjuak.
About 12 whales appear to be trapped, but local officials have estimated as many as 20 are swimming in an area 30 feet square. Video shows the massive whales alternating to surface and take breaths.
...Of course, this event getting the attention of people throughout the world has to be a direct cause of "global warming," right? You betcha. The article continues.
Experts say the massive mammals have only been visiting the region in the past few decades, an area they can now access presumably because global warming has reduced the amount of ice caps, which had previously prevented the trip.Of course, Andrew Trites is one of those researchers whose funding depends on continuing the global warming scare. In February of 2012, he was complaining about research grants drying up for his study of why sea lions were becoming endangered. You can be the reason is "global warming" not the natural process of species become extinct which happened since mammals first came to the planet.
“The reason they can now access the Arctic, is because there is a lot less ice because of global warming,” Andrew Trites, a marine researcher at the University of British Columbia, told the Star.
So let me get this straight...if the ice in the Artic melts, the fault is man-made global warming. If Artic freezes trapping animals, then the problem is man-made global warming.
As I was writing this, the news broke that the whales have gotten free due to a change in the current. Given that this is good news, I'm sure global warming won't be blamed.
