A few years ago, scientists were claiming that the Arctic would warm quickly in response to global warming. But then temperatures in the northern hemisphere began to drop.
And before you knew it, scientists were claiming that cold temperatures actually proved global warming.
No warming in sight for Alaska. Temperature anomaly forecast for May 15 – 22. Source: wxmaps.org.
If we look at Alaska over the last few days, then global warming must be galloping out of control. Before you know it, the globe will be covered in ice as it overheats. Hey, that’s global warming science…and there are plenty of dupes and chumps out there to lap it all up.
The online News Miner of Alaska reports on a number of records being set. What follow are some new May 14 records, with the old ones in parentheses:
– Eielson Air Force Base: 22°F (26°F in 1954).
– College Observatory, University of Alaska Fairbanks: 21°F (24°F in 1964).
– Bettles: 11°F (22°F in 1986).
– Galena: 13°F (16°F in 1965).
The News Miner also reports that record low daytime highs were recorded:
Fairbanks also set a new record for the coldest high temperature at the airport Monday with a high temperature of 37 degrees. That broke the record of 40 set in 1937.
Other record low maximum temperature records were reported at Galena (31), Tanana (34) and Eielson Air Force Base (38).
Fairbanks avoided another record cold high temperature Tuesday when the high temperature at the airport hit 40 degrees, surpassing the record of 39 degrees in 1937″
That means sea ice melt will be delayed, thus the sunlight will get reflected back out, and then the albedo catastrophe that the warmists keep bringing up when ice melts will occur in reverse. Oh, I forgot. In climate science these processes are only true in one direction, i.e. warming.
