Such as, we are now in a warming period? Or are you saying that this is the hottest the earth has ever been? But no amount of proof that the earth has been hotter far longer than this year, means nothing....




How many "ice ages" have we had?

There isn't one thing in that narriative to suggest that this has ANYTHING to do with the climate. it's just fodder for the easily influenced.
The headline is a quote -- and CNN is reporting the quote. That's not a fake headline it is real...here's more on the findings


https://www.alaskapublic.org/2019/07...in-yukon-area/
Quinn-Davidson says that all the signs point to heat stress. The Koyukuk water has been warmer than usual, and the Yukon water temperatures have broken records. Quinn-Davidson asked two people on the Koyukuk to boat around and let her know what they saw. Their report alarmed her.

It isn't fake news if a news organization does a story that is reporting on the findings of an organization.

CNN did not provide commentary.

It provided the story from this organization.

While you may object to the findings of the group -- you can't fault CNN for reporting on the findings.

(Aren't you the same person that claimed it was a fake story that the person Trump called fat was a Trump supporter --- seems you are having a tough couple of days. That supporter was indeed a Trump fan and holds nothing against Trump for being a rude, misinformed President).

In surgery we sometimes have to give the blood thinner, heparin. Then to reverse the heparin, we give another drug called protamine. Protamine is made from salmon sperm.

I always wondered how they went about getting the salmon sperm.

The salmon in Alaska are doomed anyway. Mining instead of salmon. Really too bad since Bristol Bay is one of the largest salmon fisheries in the world. If the heat didn't kill them, the mining would anyway. And it's not just the salmon itself, it's also jobs in Alaska.

"The Bristol Bay fishery supports 14,000 jobs that bring in $1.5 billion in revenue each year..."

Do they even have water temperature records that go back 104 years?....of course not

Ft Yukon is obviously on the Yukon River....and that's where the record high temperature was recorded in 1915....104 years ago

Check out the content of the feed used for farm raised salmon! To sort of steal a line form the GRADUATE......One word, "microplastics". Attack the immune system.


RU article.


https://sebsnjaesnews.rutgers.edu/20...assaic-rivers/


Keith Cooper, study co-author and professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology, showed that microplastics led to abnormal growth and heart defects in larval zebrafish during lab testing. Itís not known whether the plastic particles themselves or the chemicals in them were responsible.


MPs also transport other pollutants, we are awash in pharmaceuticals as well, in our water supply.
