Be careful what you wish for

Posted: January 29, 2014 - 5:24pm

To my lack of knowledge, there is little advertising or awareness of a sad, horrific irony that should be common sense. Our state’s conundrum is that its coffers rely 85 percent on extraction of fossil fuels. Oh, goody, goody.

The arctic ice is disappearing (along with other alarming climate ramifications) leaving more area ripe for drilling. But why is the ice thawing? Because of the burning of fossil fuels.

It’s all about money: more jobs, better economy, “better future” — as we’re told ad nauseum by oil companies and politicians. This short-sighted attitude will increasingly bite Alaskans and all people. Be careful what you wish for.
