"Over 100 Beluga whales are trapped in water between ice floes in the Chukotka region of Russia's Far East..."

"Their habitats are threatened by the oil industry, global warming and hunting, according to ecologists.

Whales are often trapped in the Arctic ice but rarely in such numbers as in the incident off Chukotka."

Since artic ice has been replaced by global warming, it must be global warming which has those poor Balugas trapped, right?

What rarely trapped so many of them previously if global warming wasn't to blame in the past?

I’ve consumed Beluga Whale. The indigenous Inuit people aren’t very fond of the enviromentalist types.

The only things they left out was that the whales were obvoiusly homeless and since it was only Baluga’s then it must be racism. (is there some way that we can also get illegal guns involved with this. No sense in missinga a point in a well developed crisis). Oh yeah. . they were just looking for work that other whales refused to do

That's because there's so many more of them now.

You idiot! Don’t you know belugas are white and there is no way that anyone can be racist towards whites. Only whites can be racist towards those of color. Get with the program!!!!

I believe they were profiled and stopped just south of Phoenix hidden in the back of a Zima delivery truck and Sheriff Arpaio sent them to their icy, watery prison. Wonder what happened to their pink undies?

Global warming is causing the ocean to freeze which is threatening the whales. Yeah, that makes sense.

They’re not “trapped by Global Warming”. They’re trapped by ice.

"The exact recipe for ending Globul warming":
  1. 1. Steal trillions of dollars from you and people like you.
  2. 2. Take away all your freedoms.

Et Voila! No more Globul Baloney.

IN OTHER NEWS:

The crew of the Steve Irwin was caught completely off guard today when the Japanese whaling ships Nisshin Maru, Shōnan Maru 2, Yūshin Maru, Yūshin Maru 2, and Yūshin Maru 3 suddenly changed course and headed out of the whalers normal search area. A cheer could be heard onboard the Steve Irwin as the crew shouted "We won, we won!"

Meanwhile, aboard the Nisshin Maru, the whaler Captain, after changing course of the whaling fleet to head to the Chukotka region of Russia's Far East, grinned and muttered..." 特別許可レビュー". (Translates in English to "Like shooting fish in barrel...heh, heh, heh...")

Yes I noticed they said rarely-—not never, but rarely, but they knew exactly where to place the blame this time.

\Global Warming.

I have gotten so that I trust science as far as I trust Gloria Allred.

>>>What do they taste like?<<

I have some students from Point Hope and other villages up north, and they’ve shared beluga muktuk with me. It’s very good. Bowhead whale is also excellent. I usually slice the muktuk while it is frozen into thin slices, then dip it in teriyaki and sprinkle cajun seasoning on it. Yum.

“’Given the lack of food and the speed at which the water is freezing, all the animals are threatened with exhaustion and death,’ it added.”

>Remember: Global Warming causes water to freeze, therefore, killing whales. Penguins, too. And kittens, did I mention the kittens??

So according to the Global Warming proponents, Polar Bears are threatened due to thawing ice from Global Warming and Beluga Whales are threatened by freezing water due to Global Warming. No sane person can hold both positions.

So did global warming cause the ice, then? Global warming can do almost everything! /S
