Indeed. What about it!Fordama wrote: Yeah, so what about the actual science that she was referencing!
Your "actual science" article says:
"Over the past 60 years, Alaska has warmed more than twice as rapidly as the rest of the U.S.,"
Now pay attention Einstein. The link I posted that said "Alaska is headed for an ice age" has a link in it to a real "actual science" that shows your "actual science" government PR paper claim is wrong! Alaska has NOT been warming over the past 60 years. Alaska has been warming over the past 47 years prior to the year 2000! Here it is:

The First Decade of the New Century: A Cooling Trend for Most of Alaska

Abstract: During the first decade of the 21st century most of Alaska experienced a cooling shift, modifying the long-term warming trend, which has been about twice the global change up to this time. All of Alaska cooled with the exception of Northern Regions. This trend was caused by a change in sign of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), which became dominantly negative, weakening the Aleutian Low. This weakening results in less relatively warm air being advected from the Northern Pacific. This transport is especially important in winter when the solar radiation is weak. It is during this period that the strongest cooling was observed. In addition, the cooling was especially pronounced in Western Alaska, closest to the area of the center of the Aleutian Low. The changes seen in the reanalyzed data were confirmed from surface observations, both in the decrease of the North-South atmospheric pressure gradient, as well as the decrease in the mean wind speeds for stations located in the Bering Sea area.
