Re: New discovery in Alaska?????

This is silly. The permafrost in Alaska is only a few million years old.
Remember that back in the Eocene there were evergreen forests with Diatryma
and other large animals even on Ellesmere land. The only place I can think
of where there _might_ have been permafrost continuously since the
Cretaceous would be the higher parts of the Gamburtsev mountains of central
East Antarctica. Unfortunately they're covered by about a mile of ice.
