APRN’s Liz Ruskin is traveling with the President. She says Obama is on a tour boat called the Viewfinder, not a Coastguard cutter.
President Obama is in Seward today. He landed early this afternoon in his helicopter, called Marine One and then hiked to Exit Glacier to highlight how much the rivers of ice in the state are retreating because of global climate change. He called the glacier “spectacular” and said, “we want to make sure that our grandkids can see this.”
