GLOBAL WARMING DOUBLED SNOWFALL IN ALASKA — STUDY
Snowfall in south-central Alaska has dramatically increased over the last 150 years because of climate change, scientists said in a report released yesterday.

According to the study published in the journal Scientific Reports, summer snowfall has risen by about 49 percent since the mid-19th century, and winter snowfall has increased by a whopping 117 percent.

It may sound counterintuitive — after all, Alaska is experiencing the fastest rate of warming in the country, and the central part of the state has already seen its temperatures climb by 2 to 3 degrees over the last 50 years. But warmer air can hold more moisture, the researchers say, allowing for greater amounts of precipitation, including snow.

Yeah, it doubled snowfall, but at the same time permafrost melts in many places and many houses are giving up to erosion. I am sure in Arctic areas we will see many rapid changes, which will affect locals and animals.

Agree, in some areas people even use nitrogen (azote) to freeze soil
