- There is something very special about this picture by Andrew Harnik if several of my little birds have emailed it to me with their own individual take.
“The symbolism of man’s effect on the planet is right there”
“At least it wasn’t on a blue dress.”
“Even Alaska’s fish love Obama”
“I wish I had been that fish so I could’ve peed on his boots to.”
- The LA Times gives an Outsider’s view of the president’s trip to Alaska. Complete with rebuke (fair/unfair?) toward the Alaska GOP’s twitter feed, the shock that Pebble Mine could even be a possibility, and a tidy wrap-up invoking previous presidential visits.
- If Pebble Mine wasn’t on Pres. Obama’s environmental radar before his visit to Alaska, it is now! Reuters admits that while he did not directly address the controversial mine issue during his tour of Dillingham…he did say, “There are other threats [other than climate change] to this environment that we’ve always got to be alert to.”
- Get out your popcorn and a non-work electronic devise to read this Anchorage Press retelling of their experience covering the GLACIER conference. Warning: the excitement is infectious and the language can be rather blue. Enjoy!
