Evidence of Global Warming
In British Columbia, fisherman Gudy Gudmundseth caught the first Humboldt squid ever seen in that area. At 6½ feet and 44-pounds, it was an amazing catch.
James A. Cosgrove, of the B.C. Royal British Columbia Museum, says, "It seems silly to get excited about a dead squid, but it has such great implications. This is an animal that should be down in South America, not in British Columbia or Alaska."
While Canadians are trying to figure out how giant squids came so far north, people in Vermont are wondering where all their monarch butterflies are.
In another article Streiber says,
Levels of carbon dioxide accumulating in the atmosphere are sharply increasing, which means that climate change may occur sooner than expected.Streiber and Art Bell are the authors of The Day After Tomorrow, from which the movie of the same name was based.
