Shortest Summer On Record In Alaska

Oddly, the IPCC forgot to mention this in their report.

With the early arrival of freezing conditions this month, it should be no surprise that the length of the continuous summer thaw season was the shortest on record in Fairbanks

    Meanwhile the Chicken Noodle Network has an article about a tiny Inupiat Eskimo community where the locals see the sea ice forming later each year, the coast eroding, the permafrost melting, the hunting seasons have shifted and lakes have dried up.

    It appears that most of the article was written from a phone call to the mayor of the town. Also it looks like the mayor is looking for moeny to relocate the village.

    Steve, according to accuweather one of their meterologists noted in their blog a week or two ago that parts of upstate NY had their shortest growing on record this year also.

      Growing season … but Chris did they say what the record covered? For New York state that could be over a hundred years of quality record keeping.

        Stewart, I wish I could find the article but I remember him saying that that there was some snow around memorial day and then there was a late freeze and then this August there was an early freeze hence the shortest time between last and first freeze. I’m sure the records go back close to 100 years. It was somewhere in/near the adirondacks but I forgot the town.

    From The Economist: “The mismatch between rising greenhouse-gas emissions and not-rising temperatures [15 year temperature stall] is among the biggest puzzles in climate science just now.” And ALL their predictions of doom and ALL their models have failed, not even being coming close to reality, just completely off the mark. Now, among innumerable other things that doesn’t jive with the bs spouted by the Chicken Little Brigade, we have the shortest summer ever in Alaska. We have record cold and record ice growth in the Arctic. And an all time record level of sea ice — again — in Antarctica. And there’s actually a lot of evidence that the 1930s were hotter than today! So how can the ipcc politicos by “95% confident” in their own hogwash? It’s laughable.

    Here in Eagle River, the “banana belt” of Alaska (and near sea level), we had snow May 18th and again September 23rd, for a snow-free season of a mere 127 days — the shortest I’ve seen in 35+ years here. (but of course that’s just anecdotal ;-))
