Follow The Money To Alaska

Richard Boone of Science Business magazine writes from his warm office in California,  that Alaska winters are getting very warm, and it is your fault.

Warmer winters have a cascading effect in Alaska. “The impacts have been profound,” said Boone. “And the state has found itself unprepared.

People who live in Alaska have a different opinion. They say the Alaskan winter was too cold.

It’s so cold in Alaska that even Alaskans are complaining. Temperatures reached as low as 59 degrees below zero in parts of Alaska on Jan. 18, 2017

“I want to leave,” Cynthia Erickson of Tanana, Alaska, told the Associated Press. “My teeth are frozen to my lips.” “It’s just miserable,” Erickson added. “I hate everybody who lives in a warm place.”

On March 4, the fake news Guardian said the Iditarod was suffering from insufficiently wintry conditions.

Temperatures in Alaska were actually far below normal on March 4, as they were on 30 out of 31 days last month.

Every location in Alaska except two were below normal temperature during March, with Fairbanks 14 degrees below normal.

Temperatures in Fairbanks this year have been averaging more than twenty degrees cooler than 1981.

Global warming is a business, not a science. Keeping the scam alive brings in billions of dollars a year to research institutions.

    Alaska has experience some mild winters recently and also some cold winters. I don’t believe that is far different than the way it has been since records began.

    Why are they always making up stories about Alaska? That would be the last place where anyone would complain about a little warming. Why not Phoenix, Dallas, or Miami?

    I read that “Deadliest Catch” is going to push climate change, claiming crabs are headed for deeper water due to warming oceans. I’m sure that has absolutely nothing to do with the pressure of commercial fishing. Now I’m even more pleased that I have never watched a single episode of this sea going soap opera.

      Don’t forget the acidification of the seawater.

      They’re not pushing it on the show, just dealing with the current situation. But they can’t help how the media or Discovery channel describes it. A few years ago they had one of the coldest winters and most ice the fishermen had ever seen. One vessel’s owners even paid a few hundred thousand dollars in the off season to add I think 3/8″ or 1/2″ more plate steel thickness to their hull. They were that scared from the prior season.

      They have also had the furthest down pack ice flow in a recent season. But the advertising never made anything of those. It was just shown on the show. Discovery also had or has the show Yukon Men, which is based in Tanana, Alaska. That may be why there was someone to get a quote from in Tony’s note above. They had a few recent seasons with abnormally cold or early winters. Which for them is potentially life or death since they have to hunt for certain things at certain times in order to stash stuff for the winter. So there were actual people facing a lean winter from actual cold and freezing, while the media was sipping lattes and crying about how warm it was.

      The current year on Deadliest Catch covers from last November. The Federal government did a survey of the crab populations to set quotas and they’ve moved due to slightly warmer water. So since they didn’t have good proof of their numbers, they cut the quotas. King crab limit down 20%. But Opelio crab fishing was not allowed at all. So they are fishing further west than normal since it is deeper and colder water. However, in prior seasons two of the vessels have fished so far west that they were only hearing Russian fishing vessels on the radio. So fishing to the west isn’t abnormal. They just don’t do that for safety and economic reasons.

      The show itself doesn’t really distort things if people are just paying attention for themselves. But it is the usual highlighting that alarmists do that is going on in terms of the advertising.

        The oceans are not warming appreciably. Do you really think a crab feels this?

      • gator69 says:

        Forbes has an article on this, and it claims that along with a less than 1 degree rise (modeled) in water temps, that “acidification” is also to blame (yawn). But here is the real story, from their own article…

        At temperatures of around 1- 4ºC, these crabs thrive in some of the colder waters on Earth; living and growing very slowly…

        So commercial fishing pressures have reduced this very slow growing creatures numbers to a point where they must go further out from their port of call.

        The End.

    It is alwayy easy for well paid people in suits
    living far away in ivory towers
    to tell people what is going on in the real world.

    And as long as they are not held accountable/being punished for their ‘predictions’ nothing will change.

    So,
    Is that why that the biggest Grizzly Bear ever to attack someone
    …..(who lived)
    was so large?

    Is that what will happen to wolves, panthers, etc?
    If so, maybe we should do something, like sent them to LA or Holywood!
    (or to “visit” this guy!)
