How to Tour Alaska Like Barack Obama
Last week President Obama became the first U.S. president to travel to the part of America above the Arctic Circle, having touched down in Alaska for a 3-day tour. Here he discussed climate change in the region—and witnessed the threat to Alaskans and Alaskan landscapes for himself. He kicked off his trip by returning Alaska's famed Mount McKinley to it's original name of 'Denali', and later spoke with locals who have seen the effects of climate change first-hand. He visited grassy coasts that in earlier years were covered in ice and towns whose rivers are heightened by melted glacial waters.
