Anchorage — Alaska Public Media and its journalists are in a tough spot with the state’s climate change policy.
Alaska’s public press is already struggling to deal with the impacts of the devastating wildfire season and the continuing drought, and they are under unprecedented pressure to do more with less.
So far this year, Alaska has lost four times as many employees as it gained during the same period last year.
Thats a loss of more than 3,000 jobs.
And the impact of the drought is still unfolding.
The state has struggled to adapt to the changing climate.
Alaska has been the only state in the nation to experience drought in one of its three seasons of the year, the second-highest in the country, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.
The drought is one of the most severe in Alaska, and it has already affected the state, including the Northwest and East.
But that is not the only challenge Alaska’s press faces.
Alaskans still are not confident about climate change, and the state has been grappling with how to handle the rising temperatures and the potential of extreme weather events like the wildfires.
The new governor, Bill Walker, has tried to make a concerted effort to increase communication and outreach to the public, but the problem has been exacerbated by the state having a new communications director.
The Communications Director is a public relations agency, or PR person, who is responsible for public relations, public relations and community relations, and also acts as a liaison to local and state elected officials.
Al Jazeera spoke to one of those new communications directors, Kari Ahearn, about how Alaska’s new communications department has come to work.
This is the first time we have had a communications director in the office of communications.
What is the role of the communications director?
Kari Achearn: The role of communications director is to ensure the communications department is informed, well-informed, and engaged in the public relations process.
I’m really proud of our communications department.
It has done an excellent job of engaging with the public.
We’ve been very proactive in communicating about our climate change efforts, the drought, the wildfires and the drought situation.
Al Gore created this office in the 1990s.
We have had two communications directors.
We are going to continue to work with the Governor’s office, and I am sure we will be continuing to work together with the governor, and that will be a priority, but I am very proud of this new department.
I am so grateful to the Governor and the leadership of the governor’s office for creating a communications team that is very engaged, well versed in the issues, and is committed to the work.
They have been very clear about their objectives and priorities, and this is a great opportunity for us to work as a team and create better communication for our people.
So what do we need to communicate about climate issues?
The governor is going to be looking at the issue in the context of climate change.
What the governor is looking for is communication that is responsive to the needs of the people of Alaska.
I believe that is a very important thing.
We can communicate better about climate and more effectively about how to manage the risks and the impacts, and how to get the state out of harm’s way, in the case of wildfire and other extreme weather situations.
What are the communications efforts?
Alaska is the only major state in Alaska that is seeing its climate change effects through the heat waves and the drier seasons, and Alaska’s climate is changing more quickly than any other state.
In other words, the state is experiencing more and more heat waves.
In the spring of 2017, temperatures were as high as 90 degrees.
The summer of 2017 was even hotter.
And then, in 2018, temperatures increased again to 110 degrees.
What are the communication efforts?
The governor is trying to ensure that we are getting it right and that the communication is being very proactive.
We want to communicate to the people that the message of climate is important, that we have to work to address it, that there are still a lot of challenges ahead.
Alaskans are also seeing their own water use increase due to drought.
Algae are the primary source of food for fish and other fish.
It is a big problem because the algae is also responsible for carbon emissions.
But in Alaska we don’t have a lot to worry about because we are not consuming much of the algae in our water.
We are using about 20 percent of the water, which is about 2.6 billion gallons a year.
The governor has made it clear that we need all of our water resources to be used for the climate.
We need to work on reducing our dependence on oil and gas, which means that we must have more reliable sources of water for agriculture and fishing.
Alas, that means a lot more fish, which can cause health problems for fish.
That is why the governor has also been pushing to diversify our
