Representative of the unwashed masses: nekom: Good thing there's no globular warming, or it would be worse right?*how cute* Especially after the coldest wettest spring in 18 years according to the article.Sometimes wacky weather is just that. Why the hell does everyone think that any deviation from the average is evidence of ZOMGECOPALYPSE!!!
EdNortonsTwin: 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.
Speef: The tragedy here is that this "debate" misses the exceptionally important fact that we could possibly be killing everyone on the planet.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: That'll make your moose sweat
Lord Howard Hurtz: 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".
Myria: 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.
WelldeadLink: Speef: The tragedy here is that this "debate" misses the exceptionally important fact that we could possibly be killing everyone on the planet.Is that more tragic than the fact that it has become important that we could possibly not be killing everyone on the planet?
Ed Grubermann: soosh: Ed Grubermann: 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.I still can't believe I slept through the first thunderstorm in the last eight years or so.Drugs are bad, mmkay?
Speef: 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.
Yamaneko2: Myria: 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.There's only one problem with the theory about land becoming more useful: most of the land does not. It's either rock, muskeg or acidic sponge sitting on top of permafrost. In exchange for such dubious much we'd lose the Australian, American, Chinese and Indian breadbaskets/ricebowls.
Too_many_Brians: As an ex-alaskan, I remember back in the 80's when it was over 115 deg in Fairbanks. And then -40 that winter. central Alaska really sucks./all of alaska really sucks.
MrSteve007: Too_many_Brians: As an ex-alaskan, I remember back in the 80's when it was over 115 deg in Fairbanks. And then -40 that winter. central Alaska really sucks./all of alaska really sucks.As an ex-Alaskan, your memory sucks. The highest ever temperature recorded anywhere in Alaska coontil this week) was 100 deg. The highest recorded temp in Fairbanks was 99 (in 1937). Between 1981 and 2010, the hottest day in Fairbanks was 94 degrees, 21 degrees cooler than your claim.Unless you happen to have better temperature measurements than NOAA . . .http://www.nws. noaa.gov/climate/xmacis.php?wfo=pafg
Speef: nmemkha:90% of "facts" are made up on the spot.80% of people already know this.I'd put those numbers at 95% and 5%.
