Alaska’s temporary U.S. Representative is a Democrat who must support homosexual marriage and abortion or she would be deplatformed. Evidently she is also in favor of global warming because she supported fossil fuel development on the North Slope National Petroleum Reserve (23 million acres). She is an Alaska native and female though so morality and political points are comparatively inconsequential. In the U.S.A. today race is what matters for corporate sensibilities if it helps deplatform conservative Americans.

Alaskans certainly need good jobs. Accelerating global warming with high Arctic drilling producing exhaust at high latitude and supplying the nation with fossil fuel for decades ahead seems wrong. THe state may lose a lot of waterline real estate as sea level rises from global warming later this century. The effects of global warming are visible every day increasingly.
The state should find a poliotician with real ideas to create 1000 new good paying jobs for the slope and interior that isn’t harmful to the environment. It is possible.
Politicians are a specieis that prefer immediate rewards rather than disciplined and well informed reasonable planning unfortunately. That means the worst of things are embedded in the future like snow built up and disregarded above roads that is likely to slide.
Rep. Peltola probably will be re-elected because two Republican candidates will split the vote. A lack of intellegence can determine who wins elections.
