Climate Warming

[album][/album]Climate Warming has been amplified at higher latitudes.
We no longer have long, deep cold snaps...it was only -30F last night.
Thirty years ago we could get bottoms in the -60s.

I've noticed, and been told, the last 6 years when salmon fishing in Southeast Alaska that the fish have been harder to find and the king salmon have been in a steep decline. Shortened seasons and bag limits. Lots of closures. Going further off-shore to find them. There's been a pool of warm water near shore, and the herring have been scarce (relatively). Didn't go this year due to COVID.
