More than 160 cold-stunned turtles have been found floating this week in the Mosquito Lagoon.

Sun-Sentinel: Cold sea turtles overwhelm new Boca Raton rehabilitation center

This photo released by SeaWorld on Thursday Jan. 7, 2010, shows aquarist Jenny Albert covering an endangered green turtle at SeaWorld's Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Orlando. The arctic blast that has affected most of the country has forced more than two dozen green sea turtles to be transported to Orlando after being rescued by wildlife rangers from the Mosquito Lagoon in Merritt Island on Wednesday.  Rescuers work day and night to save some of AlGore's victims.

A green sea turtle is treated for "cold stun" at the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center on Friday, Jan. 8, 2010, in Boca Raton.  Vets try to save turtle afflicted by "cold stun".  Others died before rescuers could get to them.

WPBF: Cold Stress Contributes To Record Number Manatee Deaths (Could this be the first mass extinction caused by Global Cooling?)

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- State wildlife officials said 429 manatees died in Florida last year, nearly 100 more deaths than in 2008.  The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said Wednesday the increased deaths can be attributed, in part, to cold stress during the winter months of 2008 and 2009....Officials found 337 dead manatees in Florida in 2008. Manatees remain protected under both state and federal laws.  (Will Al Gore and the other Global Warming profiteers be prosecuted for causing these deaths?)

Puerto Rico Daily Sun: So cold in Florida ‘frozen’ iguanas falling out of trees

How cold is it in Florida? Cold enough for frozen iguanas to be falling out of trees.

The iguanas, paralyzed by the cold, were spotted in ‘frozen’ condition, clinging from trees or stuck to the ground, according to reports from the so-called Sunshine State, where temperatures have plummeted to the 20s in the past few days.

It was ‘balmier’ in South Florida, where the thermometer registered in the 30s. At 7 a.m. Wednesday the temperature climbed to 40 degrees in Miami and 38 degrees in Fort Lauderdale, according to the Miami Herald.

The record number of consecutive days when the thermometer stayed below 50 degrees in Miami occurred in early 1940. It was 13 straight days. In Fort Lauderdale, the record was set in January 1956 when it remained under 50 degrees for 12 straight days.

It’s six days and counting this year for Miami and Fort Lauderdale, the Herald noted...

Just last November, the Plane Stupid Video (yes that's really their name) made this TV commercial of polar bears falling from sky (image is similar to people leaping from WTC on 9-11) in an effort to guilt-bait Europeans into raising taxes and paying for worthless carbon credits.  Now the terrible reality is that REAL iguanas are falling from the skies.  Manatees and turtles are dying from the cold.  And by their own logic, we must conclude that Global Cooling activists are responsible for the terrible mass extinction befalling the manatees and the turtles and the mass slaughter of iguanas left vulnerable by their cold-induced unconsciousness.  Obviously Gore and all the other Global Warming scamsters should be brought before the World Court in chains, convicted, sentenced, and then tried, for their crimes against the environment.  Turnabout IS fair play!
