Cold Florida weather killing manatees

Written by The Sarcasmist on December 10, 2010 - Comments (6)

It's so cold!

2010 has been a terrible year for Florida manatees–699 of them have died according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Of the 699 deaths, 244 have been attributed to cold weather.

“We are very concerned about the unusually high number of manatee deaths this year,” Gil McRae, the director of the institute, said in a statement. “The cold-related deaths this past winter emphasize the importance of warm weather habitat to the Florida manatee.” (Reuters)

Maybe those crazy global warming nuts will now see that their tree hugging socialist agenda is killing the graceful manatee. I seriously hope they don’t try to point out that the proper term is ‘climate change’ and that cold Florida winters are in fact the result of ‘global warming’. What we need now is more cars on Florida streets. It’s the only way to save the manatee.

  1. Oh hail to you Oh you mighty master of self-induced ignorance:D . . . and if it’s soo cold we should then crochet some blankeys for the poor manatees – being wet while being in the water is a natural phenomenon and will not be a problem. At least we did what we could, according to our comprehension ability *Right?*

  2. As you can see from the photo, Manatees are not able to increase their carbon footprint. It’s not their fault — they just can’t do it. What are the Rx’s? If the FFWCC is being honest with their numbers, then it would appear C(AN:6 AW: 12.011) footprint efforts should be increased by those Floridians near the shivering Manatees.

  3. simple question:

    HOW WELL DO YOU THINK MARINE LIFE IN GENERAL SURVIVES WITH A MILLION TONS OF OIL FLOATING AROUND/COVERING OVER/AND ULTIMATELY TOXIFYING THEIR FOOD SOURCES AND LIVING ENVIRONMENT??

    simple answer:
    PLEASE REFER TO THE 699 DEAD MANATEES.

  4. With my feelings of concern for the manatee’s survival comes an even greater feeling of responsibility.
    I shall take up the hard task of fighting for more additions to the Family Guy writing staff. I will also lobby other, less successful TV programs to acknowledge both Family Guy’s success and the inevitable death of the manatee, leaving them no other option than to also be a safe harbour for the manatee. That is, if they like monies.
