SNOWBALLS, Alaska - The government of Alaska has been asked by the Eskimo population of the village of Snowballs to address a situation that is becoming more and more serious.
A spokesperson for Alaska's Northern Eskimos identified as Fafanook Vapatimbu has informed the Alaskan authorities that global warming is not only an actual occurrence but it is starting to cause a problem for many of the far north Eskimo communities.
Vapatimbu stated that lately due to the change in temperatures which are averaging 6 to 13 degrees higher than normal many of the Eskimo families are finding that their igloos are starting to show early signs of melting damage.
Zimchenka Palooka, 83, who has lived in the same igloo for 82 years, told a reporter for The Anchorage Igloo Chronicle that just within the past two weeks he has noticed some drops of water dripping from the big ice blocks which make up part of his family's bathroom.
Palooka also pointed out that the floor of his igloo is not as cold as usual and his wife Courtney Palooka, 77, has expressed some concern.
Mrs. Palooka also noted that even the ice cubes that she uses to make lemonade are not as cold as they are actually supposed to be.
SIDENOTE: The Alaskan government will be looking into the igloo problem and report their findings to Vice-President Joe Biden who is in charge of matters regarding the Eskimo population.
