Be­fore Gore

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

D.C. res­i­dent John Lock­wood was con­duct­ing re­search at the Li­brary of Congress and came across an in­trigu­ing Page 2 head­line in the Nov. 2, 1922 edi­tion of The Wash­ing­ton Post: “Arc­tic Ocean Get­ting Warm; Seals Van­ish and Ice­bergs Melt.”

The 1922 ar­ti­cle, ob­tained by Inside the Belt­way, goes on to men­tion “great masses of ice have now been re­placed by moraines of earth and stones,” and “at many points well-known glaciers have en­tirely dis­ap­peared.”

“This was one of sev­eral such ar­ti­cles I have found at the Li­brary of Congress for the 1920s and 1930s,” says Mr. Lock­wood. “I had read of the just-re­leased NASA es­ti­mates, that four of the 10 hottest years in the U.S. were ac­tu­ally in the 1930s, with 1934 the hottest of all.”
