Sea Turtles Frozen to Death

They were “frozen solid” says Audubon Society spokesperson.  Incredibly, the deaths are blamed on global warming.

In case you missed this, around 190 sea turtles were found frozen to death off Cape Cod last week.

The turtles were unable to make it to shore after they became “incapacitated” by bone-chilling temperatures, a high tide and “gale force winds,” said Bob Prescott, director of Mass Audubon wildlife.

“A lot of the turtles were found frozen in the water still,” Prescott continued. “I picked up two to three myself that were still in the water, the slushy water.”

“We are at well over 400 cold-stunned turtles [this year] — 82 today, the vast majority of them frozen solid,” said Massachusetts Audubon Society’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary communications coordinator Jenette Kerr on Thursday.

Incredibly, the article goes on to blame the sea turtle’s deaths on global warming.

“It’s not often the ABC in Australia prints anything regarding cold temperatures & it’s effects but here is an article about frozen turtles being washed up,” says Macca.

  1. Retardation rules in Cape Cod! Incredible stupidity! It’s the reason why Americans in the NE will die from their own stupidity if they want to buy into this garbage that article is suggesting!

    I wonder which idiot write that article?? That person needs extensive brain surgery and needs to be committed to an asylum.

  2. Brrr. And brutal global cooling continues. In five years, many will at long last be forced to acknowledge it.

    Cooling clearly refutes CO2 causes heat, which is the entirety of the AGW / man-made global warming theory pushed by PhD pseudo-scientists, the U.N. and established media.

  3. Sure frozen turtles=global warming. It’s cold because it’s warmer. Understand as a former Cape Coder November is not all that freezing cold on the ocean climate Cape. Some frost and that’s about it. Then again I had ice in my bird baths here in Austin, Texas last week.

  4. The cognitive dissonance the Klimate Katastrophe Kooks must experience when reading a story about turtles freezing en masse, then being told that it’s due to CAGW (and believing it!), must clang so loudly that their heads feel as though they’re the clapper in a bell tower.

    You can’t make this sort of idiocy up, folks. Liberalism is, quite literally, a mental illness.

    My only questions are: At what point do we start putting the loonies in the loonie bin? How much more economic, environmental and societal devastation will we allow them to commit before we start locking them up as a menace to sane society?

    Comment: This is the difference between the Dalton Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) of 1802 to 1824, and the APM affected cycles of the tepid Gleissberg period 1870 to 1901, and this modern GSM 2008 to 2031, the bounty of the sea would have been landed, and eaten, without a thought or comment in a diary, or even a local newspaper.
    Now because of the 40 years of Green Socialism political activism masquerading as care for the planet this is head line news and the cause blamed on Human Induced Warming and Cooling at the same time under term climate change. When in fact it is the normal cyclic energy progression of our variable UV star we depend on for energy and life in our billions of years solar system progression around the Galaxy.
    Socialism in its Russian guise is the perpetrator of one of the worse acts of environmental vandalism in Eastern Europe/Western Asia the destruction of the Aral Sea, by removing its source water and diverting all of it to cotton production in central Asia.

  6. after seeing this ABC news on the turtles frozen to death there will be a crisis meeting in the ABC on who is responsible for this fake news

  7. and i just bet abc were the clowns linking warming as the reason?
    even though NASA just had to admit a global drop of .56? of a degree for the last 2 yrs…
    they faint at a supposed TENTH of one degree rise, but ignore the entire decades supposed dangerous rise vanishing?

  8. It is a result of our changing climate with the jetstream path having changed to a more meridional as a result of the coming little ice age. This can cause the temperature to change very rapidly of which there is growing evidence. In the UK we have gone from just above freezing to over 50F today. But since we have had LIAs before and turtles are still around so I presume they will survive unless human activity on their beaches deprives them of breeding space.

  9. So, Globalist Warming causes warming and Polar Bears die, and most likely Sea Turtles if “They are in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time”………………AND

    Global Cooling causes cooling and Polar Bears have more babies and increase in numbers….AND…….Sea Turtles freeze to death…

    Danm, we just can’t win. and it is all my fault due to my Chevy Avalanche…..

    IF warming is bad, and caused by C02, yet this same C02 caused cooling, then can I have a refund on my Carbon Tax?

  10. Incredibly, the article goes on to blame the sea turtle’s deaths on global warming.

    Incredible indeed! It would be easier to believe that it was Trudeau’s fault instead.

  11. I am sad that they died…but I certainly hope they are gonna use that turtle meat to feed people. I am not sure what cultures would want it, but am certain there are some for whom that is a delicacy,
