The National Geographic is flogging the heart-rending stories of baby seals drowning or being crushed by melting ice- obviously the result of global warming. How the pups survived the 1920's or in the 1800's when arctic ice was at historically low levels was not explained. The researchers are amazing and could divine that by just counting stranded seals that "almost none" survived the 2010 summer . They must be using statistics above and beyond what ordinary non-climate scientists have available to them or maybe a dartboard.
Harp seal pups are taking a hit due to global warming, according to the first study of its kind.
