Last year, An oddity occured for a good month or so in Fairbanks. One week it would be 10 to 20 degrees BELOW average, then the next week it would be 10 degrees ABOVE average. When it was all said an done, even for AK it was a coold winter with sea ice extending further and faster than had been seen in three decades!

Global warming? Hmmmm…… Climate change? Oh yeah! But from the hand of man? I doubt it. I don’t deny the change, I believe the presumed cause is wrong.

Did CO2 from my SUV cause the Jovian Climate to change?… or the Martian Climate to change?….or any of the other planets here in the Solar System for that matter?

Since we are helpless to stop it, please sit back and enjoy the show… and never forget the things you see here today. These events happen once every-other lifetime!

Keep your head UP!!
