Arctic Peoples Overlooked as GLACIER Conference Thaws Climate Discussions

WASHINGTON - On August 30-31, President Obama traveled to Alaska to address the U.S. State Department's conference on Global Leadership in the Arctic: Cooperation, Innovation, Engagement and Resilience (GLACIER), highlighting international and domestic priorities in the region. However, as politicians and activists seek to tackle the climate change challenges of the far North--- rather than taking bold steps to curb emissions in other, more-consumptive regions of the world--- the autonomy of Arctic peoples may be threatened.
