Record cold in Europe disrupts wild life

Geologists studying effects of global warming on Earth predict abnormal weather patterns including frequent hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, flash floods, avalanches, wildfires, record droughts next to torrential downpours. Sounds like the weather reports coming from every continent, displacing millions of people & disrupting wild life. Those who think global warming is Chicken Little alarmism writ large might be wiser to think of this Dalmatian pelican near the Caspian Sea as the canary in the mine. Endangered by the unusually frigid temperatures across Europe & unable to catch fish to eat from ice covered waters, this pelican has left a nature reserve & is seeking warmth at a fire in a shipyard.
