Today’s #ClimateFact Saturday is dedicated to the U.S.’s last wild frontier: Alaska. @EPA

Over the past 50 years, Alaska has warmed twice as fast as the national average. Warming is contributing to the thawing of Alaska's permafrost. By the end of this century, the permafrost boundary is likely to shift northward hundreds of miles, increasing the risk for infrastructure damage. Warming is contributing to the loss of protective sea ice along Alaska's northwestern coast, leading to increased rates of coastal erosion. Warming is altering marine and terrestrial ecosystems, causing changes in the extent and location of habitat for fish and wildlife. Climate change places significant stress on the livelihoods, villages, and cultures al values of Alaska Natives.
