The Canary Sings And Global Warming Dies

Like a striped testament to one of the coldest winters to hit Alaska in 100 years, a black-and-white tripod remains upright, atop stubborn Tanana River ice in Nenana.  At 12:42 (ADT) Monday afternoon, the still-frozen waters allowed Nenana Ice Classic set a new record for the latest the ice has gone out in the 97 years since railroad workers started keeping track.

    I have been monitoring the cam, the tripod just fell through seconds ago. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next couple of winters. It wouldn’t surprise me to see an even longer record happen over the next couple of years if the cold winters keep up.

      Yep, just saw that too. Now we’ll get to keep hearing over and over again about how this isn’t really a record because of the leap year, despite the fact that if you count days using the best metric, days since the equinox, you’ll find that it’s a record by several hours.

      nope….for the rest of my life I’m going to have to hear how it’s getting earlier

    Yay! Another nail in the coffin of the biggest financial scam in history.
    Suck it up Hansen. The bell has just tolled for thee!
