How are Alaska and California different?

This is for my project. Please give specific differences. Not like hot in California and cold in Alaska.

One main thing is that is much more expensive to live in Alaska. Things have to be delivered by boat or airplane therefore is more expensive. Just in general the cost of living is more expensive. The day/night thing is different in Alaska because they'll have months of darkness at a time. They also actually get PAID by the government to live in alaska...as long as they promise to stay an alaska resident forever, they will get a check each year, if they move they have to pay it back. Use wikipedia to research alaska, its pretty cool.

And a refrigerator is something not needed at all huh?
Well, here in Alaska they have regular stores that sell refrigerators.
And we do have summers here with temperatures that reach into the seventies, and sometimes see temps in the eighties mark where I am at, other places some do see eighties normally.
I get a kick out of people that think Alaska has snow coming down all year.
And people who ask if they need to exchange American money to some other currency, before they go to Alaska.
And ones who think the dog sled is the only means of transportation here.
And the ones that think all is Eskimo here in Alaska, we have Indians as well here in Alaska.
Well you go and get your refrigerator ads here in Alaska and bring us out of the primitive world, and introduce us into the modern world.
