Anyone that claims that climate change…

UPDATE – Yes, I should have included a table of historical values for reference sake. Too lazy this morning.Thanks to @RunnertheFirst for pointing this out… please see the bottom of this post.

The average daily maximum was 17.3 C.

… is a buncha crap, should consider this forecast for Inuvik.

Yes, this is “weather” as opposed to “climate”. I know the concepts and terminology very well…. but if these patterns persist, then there will be some major social, economic and biological upheavals in the North.

And I don’t believe we or any other polar nation is prepared for that.
