A WORLD WITHOUT MANATEES – Global Cooling Is Killing Off Endangered Sea Mammal
Only YOU can save this endangered sea mammal.
– Turn up that thermostat
– Take the long way home
– Buy that big-a$$ pickup you’ve been looking at
Doug Ross brings us this sad news…
Florida’s record number of manatee deaths in 2010 — 699 — were largely blamed on the severe cold last winter. And that count could rise with more cold temperatures expected next week…
…Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials said Friday that 2010 saw an unprecedented die-off for the endangered mammals…
…Last winter’s freezing temperatures gave many manatees an acute cold shock, like severe hypothermia, that killed them faster than in previous winters [and] the cold weather spread as far south as the Everglades and Florida Keys, areas where manatees usually don’t see many cold-related deaths.
Meanwhile, the socialists in the Obama Administration are setting aside 187,000 square miles in Alaska as a “critical habitat” for polar bears due to non-existent global warming, despite the fact that polar bear numbers, far from decreasing, are much higher than they were 50 years ago.
