  1. On the original post, kds12 pointed out that there was “a century+ of written data, and more with archeological findings, they looked at 35 yrs of data to ‘prove’ their foregone conclusion” which is a valid point, however, that is a moment to the Earth, which has cycles that span thousands of years. I believe that what we’re seeing is part of aa long-term pattern. After all, at one time, Alaska used to be tropical.
