MACMILLAN . an ice shortage Explorer Believes Melting Arctic Ice I: Warming Up World By FRANK THOMPSON famed Arctic explorer reported todav the world is eeUine warm er but that's not an unmixed ! blessing. Adm. Donald MacMillan, an 80-' year-old veteran of 30 trips to ' the Arctic, said that huge areas of ice in the Far North are melt- ' ing, bringing warmer weather. K But he added that the process also may bring a flooding threat ' to some parts of Eastern seaboard cities. MacMillan explained in an k interview: "There are now six million square miles of ice in the Arctic. There once were 12 million '( square miles. "Another thing, almost every j glacier, with one exception, has p retreated going back into the -I hills is smaller than it was. b Fewer Icebergs , "Because of the fact the glaciers have gone back into the hills fewer icebergs will be in the North Atlantic. Icebergs drift south in the-Arctic current in the North Atlantic . . . fewor icebergs will mean warmer temperatures." , MacMillan said that the melting process is going on in Green land, which has 700,000 square , milae tt ina fl OOO fonf flnnn of : the center. He warned: "If it continues to melt it will raise the level of the oceans 100 to 150 feet and on the Atlantic seaboard cover lower areas of such low lying cities as Boston, New York, Baltimore and Washington." He did not say when those cities can expect the worst.' MacMillan, an erect, 5-foot-6- inch man with flashing eyes and , thinning gray hair, made his , first Arctic oyage in 1908 with 1 Adm. Robert Peary, discoverer of the North Pole. MacMilranl soon will be leaving on his 31st ' exploration, to uncharted fjords , bf Baffinland. I More Evidence He reported these additional bits of evidence that the Arctic, ' and much of the world, is getting , warmer: "I noticed this year that the Eskimos were catching codfish 12 degrees from the North Pole. There were no codfish there in i 1913-1917. ' ! "Birds and animals are going north, farther ind farther, each t year. Southern birds, for instance, now are seen off Massa" chusetts. "When I first went north in 1908 many of the glaciers werei living, moving glaciers. Now they are dead glaciers." MacMillan said he believes the world is "at the end of the fourth great glacial period." And for those looking far, far into the future, MacMillan said: "We'll probably have it (another glacial period) again. History repeats itself."
