TheVoiceOfJoyce Where are the environmental lawsuits blocking the sale of these public lands to Mining? Like ANWAR ,Alaskan ecosystems must be maintained. We destroy Nature & our environment at our peril. It is no coincidence a Pandemic has occurred when the Globe is warming. We the People should strive for a period of reassessment of our goals & lives. What we do in Alaska affects Everyone.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Flood Factor Project. Interactive map, type your address and determine if you’re in a high or low risk flooding area. Climate warming is still part of our reality and will affect us until we take positive action to curtail Fossil Fuels. Our new World will create infrastructure jobs & growth. First we respond and live through this Pandemic. The future holds many opportunities.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Climate Science & Mitigation peer reviewed abstracts are being suppressed by Trump Appointees at EPA & Dept of Interior. Scientists at these agencies know their jobs are at risk and are concerned. My opinion: Confront the truth early or, as we’re seen with Covid, delays are costly in lives & economic stability.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Not content to destroy our lives & families with Continued inaction on suppressing SARS COV2, President will allow Bears & their cubs to be shot in their dens along with other species to allow mining in Alaska. This Administration has no humanity and no limits. Why?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce We’ve created Pandemics by interfering in natural habitats, our encroachment on wildlife & nature have produced a “perfect storm” for Pandemic. Covid 19 is not a once only occurrence, unless we reassess our relationship with natural resources.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Politics as usual is unacceptable, if we continue on our path we’ll have a 6 th extinction. What happens to our children & grandchildren, if we do nothing? Flooding is a natural occurrence and many insurance companies will not reimburse you. Can you afford to move & pay for another home? If no, will you change your politics?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Planting a Trillion trees is an interesting , impractical idea. In European’s forests, they’re not sure what trees to plant, do they need controlled burns? They’re debating the devastation that awaits and trying to clear the forest floor. Change in farming patterns and the spread of fires are contributing to more forest burn. There is no easy solutions for Europe
