Ok, a short question this week, but one that you should spend some time thinking about. We’ve been looking backwards all semester… reading historical accounts of exploration in Alaska. What’s in our future? You can think about this in ecological terms, economic, cultural, or numerous other ways. Explain what you think Alaska will look like in 100 years. Try to talk about this in a way that avoids the pitfall of Apocalyptic thinking. It’s always an option to imagine that there is no future, but that’s an easy way out of this question. Think more about the innovation and cultural developments that might come from this area.
Where are we, as Alaskans, headed?
