Al Gore and other thought leaders (Cameron Diaz) keep telling us the ice caps are melting and lower Manhattan will be under 20 feet of water before we know it. I understand Bob DeNiro is so afraid he's selling his Tribeca real estate. Well, its late April and Doug Struck at the Washington Post reports that the seal hunting fleet is stuck in pack ice. PETA must be thrilled.
The Canadian Globe and Mail has a similar report. According to the Globe and Mail:
"Frank Pinhorn, executive director of the Canadian Sealers Association, said the amount of ice was unprecedented. "Ice conditions are some of the most severe we've seen in 25 to 30 years,"
The Canadian Ice Service has been observing near record ice pack all winter.
