President Donald Trump’s administration has moved to allow logging in the Tongass National Forest in Alaska. The proposal from the Forest Service would result in the cutting down of trees across more than 6,000 acres of forest, including 5,000 acres of old-growth forest that critics say is valuable in the fight against climate change. The Tongass National Forest is a carbon sink, absorbing more carbon than it releases, and mitigating the impact of climate change on human life.
The Trump administration has finalized plans and opened up 1.5 million acres of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to oil and gas drilling, according to a document signed by Interior Secretary David Bernhardt. The 19.3 million-acre refuge is home to such animals as polar bears, arctic foxes, and caribou.
Death of a GOP talking point: The losses under Graham-Cassidy would in fact be "devastating for the other five 'bribe target' states: Arizona would now lose $3.3 billion, while Alaska would still be $99 million in the hole, Kentucky would be down $2.7 billion, Ohio down $6.5 billion and West Virginia would lose nearly $1.5 billion," Charles Gaba reported.
A leading Democratic lawmaker on Thursday said he would ask federal officials to investigate reported threats by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke regarding Alaska energy policy to retaliate against opposition from one of the state's Republican senators to efforts to repeal Obamacare.

During President Obama's tenure in the Oval Office, conservative pundits and Republican politicians have continuously blamed him anytime the price of gasoline has jumped up. Interestingly, those same voices tend to grow very quiet whenever we see a drop in the price.

On Monday, the AP ran a story detailing the efforts Ferguson government officials have taken to discourage media outlets from obtaining files from the city that are supposed to be legally available under public record laws. This is a similar tactic to one tried by Sarah Palin in 2008.
Sarah Palin is so hated in her own state that it would go for Hillary over her. Only 19% of Alaskans think Sarah Palin should run for President, 74% want her to sit 2016 out.
A poll released by McClatchy-Marist on Wednesday shows that former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton holds a commanding lead over pretty much every GOP candidate for the 2016 Presidential election.
A newly released Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey from Alaska reveals how badly tarnished the GOP brand is even in the Last Frontier State. Mark Begich, the Incumbent Democratic Senator, leads all Republican opponents in the poll. Alaska voters are not thrilled with Mark Begich’s job performance. 43 percent of Alaska voters approve of his job performance, while 44 percent disapprove. However, voters agree that any Republican in the state is an even worse option. Begich leads Dan Sullivan 41-37 and he is up 43-37 over Mead Treadwell. Although Sarah Palin has not announced any plans to run for the U.S. Senate, she trails Begich 44-40 in a hypothetical match-up. The once popular Alaska Governor is viewed unfavorably by 55 percent of Alaska voters, compared to only 39 percent who view her favorably. Still she is less loathed than Tea Party extremist Joe Miller who is now disliked by a gaping 62-16 unfavorable to favorable spread.
