Scientists : Cold Alaskan Weather Determines Our Future Climate

On average Alaska has warmed by about 4 degrees Fahrenheit over the last 150 years. There are widespread consequences such as melting glaciers and insect-devastated forest in response to this temerature change. Scientists say Alaska is like a canary in a coal mine, foreshadowing the types of changes we can expect for the rest of the world.

This is very troubling news, because people are freezing their asses off in Alaska

Cold weather in Southcentral Alaska isn’t just affecting people’s moods. It’s seriously hurting vegetable crops in the Matanuska Susitna Valley, one of the state’s major farming regions.

Most crops are several weeks behind schedule, according to farmers, the result of a chilly spring and a summer that’s nearly breaking cold-temperature records.

    Well , at least they can stock up on fish and game . My kids live in Alaska and the pictures they send me make me a little jealous of the fish they routinely catch there. It is good thing they know how to handle the cold as it looks like they are going to get a dose of it .
