Record Warm Temperatures in Alaska

Thu Dec 30, 2021 12:01 am

On Sunday, Kodiak, Alaska reached temperatures of 67 degrees Farenheit, which is the warmest that Alaska has ever recorded in December. This was warmer than Southern California the same day, when temperatures only reached 59 degrees Farenheit in Los Angeles and 65 degrees in Palm Springs and San Diego. All of this comes despite the fact that Alaska has very little sunlight in late December. At the same time, record snowfall was hitting the Pacific Northwest and Northern California. Amazing how one place in Alaska could be warmer than Southern California and not surprised if this has some connection to climate change

I’ve seen it warmer in ANC than in BOS in winter, more snow in BOS, too. Extremes are…well, extreme.

This is proof of human caused climate change. We must pass laws to mitigate human caused climate change. In the U.S. it is gross to see so many pick up trucks.

These extreme extremes are also becoming increasingly extreme and increasingly frequent...

The temperature reached 100F above the Arctic circle for the first time in recorded history. How do you explain that one away?
