State-funded commission takes global warming testimony in Kotzebue

The Alaska Climate Impact Assessment Commission (ACIAC), a legislatively-created commission, is looking into the impacts of global warming and heard from a wide range of witnesses at its meeting yesterday in Kotzebue. All speakers were united in the belief that warming temperatures are affecting all aspects of life in Alaska, especially in the northern reaches of the state.
