Some funding should be dedicated to wildlife, wild places
I live in Alaska because I love the beauty of this state. I love enjoying the outdoors by camping, hiking, fishing, and kayaking. I am concerned about the changes predicted, not to mention the ones we are seeing due to climate change, mean for these activities. Climate warming will impact all the activities I love to do in Alaska. It will also impact the economy of Alaska that depends on the tourism industry. Do we want to jeopardize the reasons we live here by doing nothing about global warming?
