Warmer weather in South-central Alaska has been increasing the intensity of snowfall annually. In fact, data reveals that the quantity of snowfall has risen for more than 117% for the last 150 years in winter and increased by 49% during summer. On top of that, the state is among the ones experiencing the most of climate changes, having their average temperature increased by 2-3 degrees in the last half-century.

The article “How to tell fake news from real news” written by Laura McClure who is an award-winning journalist and the TED-Ed editor talks about how to tell if news you see on the internet is fake or real. She talks about the steps on how to tell if a news is fake or not by looking at who wrote it, what claims the news makes, when the news was published and where was the news published.
