Anchorage Author Investigates "The Fate of Nature"

Lori Townsend, APRN – Anchorage

Its a story Alaskans know well. Natives lived here for centuries, respecting the environment and cooperatively owning the land. Then the Russians showed up with a very different philosophy and quickly wiped out Alaska’s resources. For Anchorage author Charles Wohlforth, the familiar tale highlights the conflicted relationship humans have with the planet. He examines that relationship in his new book, “The Fate of Nature- Rediscovering Our Ability to Rescue the Earth.”

Wohlforth says researching the book, he’s learned the best environmental decisions get made at the local level.
