President Obama to focus on climate change during a visit to Alaska
By Monica Gokey, KSKA – Anchorage
President Obama is visiting Alaska later this month. Thursday morning the president explained why in a video on his upcoming visit.
“I’m going because Alaskans are on the front lines of one of the greatest challenges we face this century – climate change. You see, climate change once seemed like a problem for future generations. “
But, he says, climate change is a reality, and its effects are apparent across the country, including Alaska.
