Alaska is a huge state with a wide range of climatic and ecological conditions. It is known for its rainforests, glaciers, boreal forest, tundra, peatlands, and meadows. Alaska contains 75% of U.S. national parks and 90% of U.S. wildlife refuges, by area.[1]

Over the past 50 years, temperatures across Alaska increased by an average of 3.4°F. Winter warming was even greater, rising by an average of 6.3°F.[2]The rate of warming in Alaska was twice the national average over that same period of time. Average annual temperatures in Alaska are projected to increase an additional 3.5 to 7°F by the middle of this century.[2]

Precipitation in Alaska has also increased slightly, but the trend is not significant. Climate projections indicate that Alaskan winters are likely to be wetter, and that summers could become drier, as rising air temperatures accelerate the rate of evaporation.[2][3]

Much of the wildlife is adapted for the icy cold climes, they are likely already under some physical stress now. Seals used that ice to hide their young from Polar bears, now what will they do?

There'll probably be no Polar Bears around for much longer.
