Is Global Warming Responsible for Trapped Whales?

Is Global Warming Responsible for Trapped Whales?

A report of the three gray whales getting trapped in ice near Barrow, Alaska became national news for Canada. Plight of this mammal spell bounded the world through a video that was taken by the residents. As soon as the news of their escape was released on Thursday, celebration started all over.

According to Lyne Morissette, a marine researcher says that whales are perhaps close to 1,000 kilometers south of the place of their destination. He does not call this moment as a moment of celebration. Grey whales have to get out of Hudson Bay before they are completely safe.

Peter Ewins of World Wildlife Fund says that global warming is making the pattern of ice very unpredictable. This is what leads to such situations. Ted Scambos, a leading scientist with the National Snow and Ice Data Center, has doubts about the direct relation of global warming with this incident.

In this instance, survival of fittest has taken place. These whales have also been an inspiration for 2012 film, "Big Miracle".

Morissette finds it very difficult to believe that how whales managed to make way to breathe through the trap. They had to breath in every five minutes and each one of them designed a strategy to do that. According to her, the greatest threats that they are facing currently is drowning and exhaustion.
