Its true that newspapers across the country published a story about climate change in the Arctic Ocean in 1922.
The article appeared on page 2 of the Washington Post on November 2, 1922, under the headline, Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt. The text of the article reads:
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 Consul Ifft, at Bergen, Norway.
Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers, he declared, 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 with as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.
