Alaska lives on “the melting edge” of global climate change. Temperatures in Alaska are increasing nearly twice as fast as global averages, changing everything from the timing of subsistence, to the stability of coastlines and buildings, to the ability to travel safely on what used to be frozen rivers and sea ice. Find out more about what’s changing and why.
Whether at the individual, local or regional level, we can all contribute to finding solutions to the environmental, social and political changes we now face. The more we work together, the greater our collective power to get out in front of those changes and create a better future. Find out more about how we can adapt.
