An Inconvenient Immolation

MW: June 17, 2015

"Temperatures in Alaska’s biggest city hit 83 degrees on Monday and Tuesday...Just how out of whack is that? A normal high for Anchorage was just 63 degrees"

Fortunately, this has nothing to do with climate, it's just weather. Increasingly fucked up and volatile weather, with record swings in both directions based upon an "average" temperature increase of 1 degree from trend-line.

Just more selective statisticians, who think that the average matters when it's volatility around the mean that causes extinction e.g. when salmon fry get boiled alive in the Fraser river on their way out to the Pacific.
