Will it ever stop? Will the babbling lunatics ever bother to take a look at reality?
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An estimated 10,000 Pacific walrus have gone ashore on Alaska’s northwest coast and are bunched along a beach near the village of Point Lay.
The National Marine Fisheries Service says 1,500 to 4,000 walrus were counted Sept. 12 and numbers had swollen to 10,000 on Friday.
The animals are counted using aerial photographs.
Walrus historically use sea ice to rest as they dive for clams and other food on the ocean bottom.
However, sea ice in recent years has receded far beyond the shallow outer continental shelf. Chukchi (chuk-CHEE’) Sea walrus in 2007 began showing up in large numbers on Alaska’s shore in late summer. Last year, there was enough remnant ice to keeps the mammals from going ashore.
Walrus in such numbers are in danger of being crushed in stampedes caused by airplanes, human hunters or polar bears.
Hmm, last year there was enough remnant ice ….. except …..
We’ve got over 350,000 km2 more sea ice this year than last.
But, this is what passes for “experts” and “climate science” and “climate journalism” for the nutters. Notice there are no references. No quotes. No accountability for this misinformation.
They just continue to lie to the populace. And, most of the ignorant masses, rather than looking up stuff for themselves uncritically accept this nonsense.
I don’t know why the walruses do what they do. Apparently, neither does anyone else.
