EPA To Alaskans In Sub-Zero Temps: Stop Burning Wood To Keep Warm

EPA To Alaskans In Sub-Zero Temps: Stop Burning Wood To Keep Warm:

In Alaska’s interior, where it can reach -50 degrees Fahrenheit in winter, the EPA wants people to stop burning wood. But it’s just about their only feasible way to stay warm.

In Jack London’s famous short story, “To Build A Fire,” a man freezes to death because he underestimates the cold in America’s far north and cannot build a proper fire. The unnamed man—a chechaquo, what Alaska natives call newcomers—is accompanied by a wolf-dog that knows the danger of the cold and is wholly indifferent to the fate of the man. “This man did not know cold. Possibly, all the generations of his ancestry had been ignorant of cold, of real cold, of cold 107 degrees below freezing point. But the dog knew; all its ancestry knew, and it had inherited the knowledge.”

New Mega Oil Discovery In Alaska Could Reverse 3 Decades Of Decline

I know that they’ve found an oil field in Alaska (many years ago) that would provide the U.S. easily with enough oil for the next 200 years!!!


New Mega Oil Discovery In Alaska Could Reverse 3 Decades Of Decline:

A small company just announced that it has made a “world-class” oil discovery in Alaska, which could be the largest find in the state in years.

Caelus Energy LLC, a small company backed by private equity, says that it has discovered oil on Alaska’s northern coast. The field could hold as much as 6 billion barrels of oil, with about 1.8 to 2.4 billion barrels considered to be recoverable. If that is the case, the discovery would instantly raise Alaska’s statewide recoverable oil reserve base by about 80 percent.

But producing the oil will not be easy. Drilling must take place in the winter. To drill the field, the tentative plan would be to build manmade islands to drill through. Oil produced in the shallow water of Smith Bay will need to be moved somehow. Caelus will have to build an $800 million pipeline that travels 125 miles, connecting to an existing pipeline system in Prudhoe Bay.

Arctic Warm Record Repeating 200 Year Cycle, Rapid Cooling Follows in Winter 2016-2017 (Video)

Jul 18, 2016

Description:

“Record Warm” temperatures in Alaska are not records after all, it has been warmer by 1C in the last few years, also it was warmer in 1815 followed by a drastic drop in temperatures. We are repeating a cycle, forests are being found under glaciers that are now retreating. NASA changes temperature record in Nuuk, Greenland and Iceland to remove 1940’s warm spike.

2016 Inseason Alaska Commercial Salmon Summary

H/t reader squodgy:

“At last!

I’ve been searching for three years to establish if “something going on in the Pacific” is really affecting the Salmon catches in Alaska.

Now, at last the Alasks Department of Fish & Game report clearly shows a dramatic drop in catches and expected catches as well as a 10% drop in average sizes.

Of course, fudging the problem by changing zone sizes, blaming ocean temperature and increased meltwater have the required effect of making the elephant in the room invisible again.

Just maybe, these excuses have a common source……FUKUSHIMA.”

Alaska Man Sentenced to 60 days in Jail for Growing $1.5 Million in Pot:

Homer, Alaska — Joseph Gabryszak, 32, of Homer, Alaska was arrested earlier this year after he was found to be in possession of $1.5 million worth of marijuana.

The trouble began for Gabryszak on February 12, 2016, when Alaska’s State Drug Enforcement Unit raided a 4,500 square-foot building leased to Gabryszak and found 1,000 plants that allegedly contained around 6,000 ounces of marijuana, according to a local report by Homer News.

Alaska: Thousands Of Birds Found Dead Along Shoreline (CNN – Video)

Watch the video here:

Thousands of birds found dead along Alaskan shoreline:

As he walked on a beach in the western Prince William Sound town of Whittier, seabird biologist David Irons was startled when he saw hundreds of white lumps on the black rock beach.

They were dead seabirds, in what he would discover were likely record numbers, a sign the ecosystem was being troubled by abnormally warm ocean water.

The dead birds, common murres that had starved, were lined up and left where the tide had dropped them on the shore.

“We have never found close to 8,000 birds on a 1-mile long beach before,” Irons said of his early January discovery. “It is an order of magnitude larger than any records that I am aware of.”

KION, Aug 13, 2015: [Kamyar Shareghi, tour guide:] “There have been fish dying, there have been a bunch of birds dead in the water as well. Some of the marine mammals like the sea lions, seals and the otters, they’ll have seizures and they will be delirious like dementia.”

Gay Sheffield, NOAA Sea Grant (US Dept. of Commerce) marine advisory agent, July 2014 at 31:00 in (emphasis added): “I’m here in Bering Strait and I know there’s people [on this call] from all over the state, so they may not be familiar with some of our events. Right after Fukushima blew, we had, and still sort of have… an unusual mortality event with four species of seals in this region, all the way from Bristol Bay, up to Barrow (the Russian side), and all the way into Canada… A lot of people were curious, because we have never been able to find an infectious disease. A lot of people were concerned and worried that this Fukushima radiation had some effectFukushima is a big concern in this region… Fukushima is always on people’s minds… Here’s the cover of the Nome Nugget, that’s our newspaper here, and the top story was the lack of radiation monitoring was really annoying people — that we had nothing, nothing was being done. It was a concern all the time on people’s minds — with the seals, with the birds, and what notit was making the front news of the paper. I hope that lets others know that the concern people have in Western Alaska… it’s a big thing.”

Die-off of birds all over Alaska beaches, floating in Pacific — “They seem to be starving” — Record-breaking spike in rescues, “such a dramatic increase” — Deformed and abnormal animals reported (PHOTOS & AUDIO) (ENENews, Aug 8, 2015):

KBBI, Aug 4, 2015 (emphasis added): Bird Death Reports Are Up In Homer, Food Sources Possibly To Blame — The Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge is receiving multiple reports indicating a significant increase in dead and dying birds found on beaches… Leslie Slater is the Gulf of Alaska Unit Biologist for the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge… says there are a lot of potential reasons for the increase in fatalities but the prevailing cause is likely tied to the birds’ food sources. “What we’re seeing more precisely is that birds seem to be starving. That’s sort of the ultimate cause of their deaths but something might be happening before that… biotoxins can build up through the food chain and ultimately cause the deaths of these birds.” These deaths don’t seem to be isolated to Homer’s beaches. There are reports of similar deaths down the Alaska Peninsula and the eastern edge of the Aleutians. Slater says it’s possible they could be related to dead whales found near Kodiak… She warns the public not to touch dead birds because they could be carrying disease.
