Iditarod and Global Warming

If anyone has any doubts about global warming or climate change or whatever you choose to call it, check out this article about this year’s Iditarod. According to all reports consulted by From Western Colorado, Anchorage had to truck in snow for the ceremonial start to the world-renowned race. Photos show wet street scenes that look like springtime in St. Louis with a swath of snow down the middle of the road so the sleds can slide on something besides cement. Competitors kicked off in Fairbanks, about 225 miles north.  Musher Aaron Burmeister is currently in first place. Aliy Zerkle is running in 4th place. She’s finished the Iditarod 14 times. Maybe she’ll win this year. Go girl!  Stay tuned and thanks for listening…

  1. Interesting that the Times story doesn’t even mention climate change or global warming…wonder if their editors made that decision?

  2. I meant Daily News story…oops!
