Frozen Chicken Found In The Coal Mine

The Interior Alaska town of Chicken wins the winter prize as the first locale to hit 50 below zero this winter.

While Chicken recorded minus 52 this morning, Tok came in at minus 46, with Eagle close behind at minus 44. At the Fairbanks International Airport, temperatures of minus 28 were recorded Thursday morning.

Cold enough? Chicken is first Alaska town to hit 50 below in winter 2012. | Alaska Dispatch

The people who bring us Big Bird, also tell us that Alaska is hot – and it is your fault.

    noted: Canary in a Coal Mine dates from 2004. My esteem for Sci-Am has been in decline since about that time. Once again it seems MSM & PBS confuse yearly weather variation with long term climate variation. And yet they say (and this is their ‘out’) paraph“The cycles are extremely complex, so scientists don’t know what will happen.” Just be afraid! and, it is Our fault.

    That little patch of lost ice in August obviously has had a profound effect on the weather (sarc).
