Mild Winter In Sweden Is Starving Reindeer
Posted by Phoenix Woman on January 12, 2014
This is for all those conservative anti-science snow trollers out there who think that if it’s cold for one week where they live, that means that it’s cold everywhere forever:
The mild winter even in Sweden’s northern areas has led to a record number of Sami reindeer herders filing requests for emergency food aid.
So far, 22 Sami districts requested disaster assistance from the Sami Parliament, which is considered the highest number in seven years and the pile of applications is expected to grow.
The mild winter, with alternating snow, thaw and rain, has created deep ground frost and the impenetrable ice which makes it very hard for the reindeer to get to food, according to several media sources.
