Is November supposed to look like this?

I went out for a walk with my good friend Christopher Foster. We decided to take a look at how the ice was building up in The Kotzebue Sound. What we saw alarmed us.

 It is November here in Kotzebue, Alaska and we still have open water in our sound. We talked this over and we concluded it's clear that the culprit is Climate Change.

Yes it's cold outside and you can see Chris wear his winter gear in my Tweet. But something's wrong. And it's not me just saying that.

I read a article by Yereth Rosen in The Arctic Sounder that Kotzebue has recorded a record warm temperature average for the month of October.

Don't let anyone tell you that climate change isn't happening. In fact I think that debate is really over. The question is what are we going to do about it. Some people wonder if something can be done about it.
