Murphy Dome Diaries

A journalist observes life in the far north.

Land of extremes

A blast of warm air in Alaska brought near record high temperatures over the weekend. The thermometer in Fairbanks flirted with 60 degrees. This time last year, people were skiing.

Consequently, many walks were had on Murphy Dome, and the Bottle Washing Fairy is so inspired she is tentatively planning extended stays in the far north next year.

That said, it sounds like winter is being had elsewhere in the U.S. I’d like to share this story from the Christian Science Monitor.

For the record, I’m no global warming nay-sayer. I fear what could happen to the world if we keep pumping CO2 into the atmosphere. But I also think it’s important to consider the facts.
