Alaskans Headed to Climate Conference

More Alaskans are leaving Friday night for the United Nations Climate change talks in Copenhagen Denmark. Members of the Yukon River Intertribal Watershed Council will be attending both as observers and presenters. Brian Miracle is the Watershed Council’s lead scientist. He says the council operates the largest indigenous observation network in the world maintaining 30 fixed station sites that cover the Yukon basin and measure water quality. He plans to talk to other indigenous people at the climate talks about the Yukon observer system and he’ll also be on hand to be a translator of sorts for technical and scientific information for the Watershed council attendees.
