If all the UN Climate Change Summit speeches by movie stars, all the scientific research and Greenpeace movements against global warming, or all the increased natural disasters flooding and washing away parts of the world, just aren't cutting it - I give you, the Great Walrus March of 2014!
For all the climate change sceptics out there - WAKE UP and smell the CARBON DIOXIDE guys, even the Walruses know its coming!!! Animal migration patterns evolve over hundreds of years under usual circumstances. Over the past six to eight years, 'walrus haul outs' have been increasing and researchers feels this is primarily triggered by the Arctic sea hitting an unexpected low in 2007.
Ladies and Gentleman - this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAVL61yeCYs is a call for action if I ever heard one!
The People’s Climate March had more impressive numbers, but Pacific walruses sure have us beat on color coordination. This September, more than 35,000 of these flabby, whiskered pinnipeds have crowded a beach on the northwestern Alaskan island of Point Lay. Scientists are calling it potentially the biggest walrus haul-out on record — and they’re blaming it on climate change. Walruses typically follow sea ice as it recedes to the North Pole, where they use the floating platforms for resting, giving birth, and raising pups. But the dearth of sea ice (September had the sixth-lowest extent of sea ice on record) forces Pacific walruses to swim long distances to reach solid ground on the coasts of Russia and Alaska.
