And the year before that Southcentral Alaska set a 100+ year record for snow.

...maybe because "wacky weather" seems to be becoming more and more common.......

I'm sure this is not at all related to the polar icecap melting or glabal warming in any way. It was probably just their "Inidan" Summer".....  and I bet the Alaskan bears  (and other assorted wildlife) would have moved to the Carribean years ago if we'd have only let them..............

Why, it's almost as if global warming contributes to greater and greater temperature swings or something.

Scientists should look into this new theory which is really new and is not old at all.

It's been seriously hot for the last three weeks here in Juneau. We got a break due to a thunderstorm last night. But thunderstorms are really rare here. Last year we didn't really have a summer, just a short respite from winter.
 
2013-06-18 04:20:04 PM
The core of heat was lodged over south central Alaska where the mercury spiked into the mid-90s Monday, nearly 30 degrees above average and warmer than anywhere east of the Mississippi in the contiguous U.S.

'Mid-90s' and 'Alaska' are not words I expected to see in the same sentence.

Well, at least the heat dome isn't hanging over the midwest this year. Last summer was just god-awful.

The lowest verified temp in Fairbanks is around -60F, the highest verified temp being 99F. That's a spread of almost 160 degrees. (Averages are between -40 and +90.) That's why I didn't move back when I moved back to Alaska. (That and the salmon is just about dog food by the time it gets that far inland.)

The bad part about the whole climate change debate is this:

The rational people who are capable of critical thought know that weather isn't climate, and correlation isn't causation. They can't point to a record-shattering summer in Alaska and say, "Look, climate change!".

However, the irrational people who are not capable of critical thought can point to ANYTHING to prove that their chosen side is correct, and they do. They're the ones out there shrieking "OMG LOOK CLIMATE CHANGE EVIDENCE" and "OMG HIPPY LIES DRILL BABY DRILL".  If the rational people venture an opinion in this "discussion", their observations and deductions will get lumped in with the panicked guy who took photos of his melted popsicle to prove that it's hotter than last year.

The tragedy here is that this "debate" misses the exceptionally important fact that we could possibly be killing everyone on the planet. You'd think people could take a minute to learn what the difference between observed data and opinions are, and to put aside partisanship if the stakes were everyone's survival.  But, apparently not.

Then again, this is how we've always done things.  Go, humanity. :\

Our species isn't smart enough to live much longer. Between running out of oil and climate change, it's a race to see which one will kill more of us first.

The idea of an apocalyptic event strikes me as hilariously human in nature. Alaskans aren't going to wake up someday to find mangroves and palm trees instead of conifers, just like *that*. Climate change takes a long time to happen. A really long time. It takes so long that the fact that we can even measure it happening right now is evidence (IMO) that it is happening way too goddamn fast. And it's rather ironic that the same species that cannot make plans to deal with such long-term problems would also invent a concept like "apocalypse"- a single, cataclysmic event where everything fails at once. We want to believe in an apocalypse, becuase it is a simple way of framing a complex problem that we don't understand. And the problem was created because we didn't understand the complex consequences of our actions. There's a lesson in there somewhere, I think.

/I'm referring to problems that are caused by humanity
//Problems caused by external forces- such as an asteroid hit- would truly be apocalyptic event.
///Or if Christians are all correct about armageddon
////This is my Force Majeure Clause

Alaska, Canada, and Russia are going to make out like bandits from global warming.  A lot of land quickly becomes useful.  That, or has to deal with extreme temperature shifts each year.

Great, now Fairbanks will get blanketed by fires again. I'm so tired of this shiat, freeze our asses for an eternity then suck smoke and get probosced to death.

It snowed here... during the third week of May.

Mosquitos spent May in prison, and then came out acting like Robert De Niro in "Cape Fear".

Remember folks, the Great Dust Bowl was a hoax, and the Nuclear Winter was just a fairy tale to scare you into passivity.

Also, you can't be dumping millions of years of CO2 in to the atmosphere if the earth is only 8-14k years old.
