Today's global warming story. Well, yesterday's, really...

Another news story on climate change:
The Arctic seems to be warming up. Reports...all point to a radical change in climatic conditions, and hitherto unheard-of high temperatures in that part of the earth's surface...Ice conditions [are] exceptional...so little ice has never before been noted.

Many old landmarks are so changed as to be unrecognizable. Where formerly great masses of ice were found, there are now often moraines, accumulations of earth and stones. At many points where glaciers formerly extended far into the sea they have entirely disappeared.
No doubt that will be all over the news this week.

Well, probably not. We've heard it all before, right? We know that the Arctic is melting, it's unprecedented, polar bears are dying, manmade CO2 from the mid-to-late 20th century automobiles caused it, etc., etc.,

But this story did make the papers.

In 1922.
