The Grand Portage Reservation is at the northeastern tip of Minnesota. The Air Quality Program has many ongoing projects in order to maintain healthy indoor and outdoor air. These projects include monitoring for regional haze and particulate matter, indoor air quality, invasive plant removal, public outreach, environmental education, alternative energy, and climate change.

Fairbanks, AK and New Orleans, LA are currently the same temperature

And they are both warmer than us - I had -19F this morning.

Check it out: Fairbanks 5:48 AM AKST +32.5F

New Orleans 9:02 AM CST +33.4F

Less than a degree different and separated by almost 35 degrees of latitude on the same continent. This is why you can't judge climate by local weather, you have to look at long term trends.
