On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Federalist Western Correspondent Tristan Justice joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss his recent reporting trip to Alaska where natural resource conflicts have taken over the state’s politics. Justice visited oil drilling sites and a remote southwest Alaskan village that is effectively banned from harvesting their massive deposits of copper, gold, porphyry, and molydenum.

    This was the best presentation on Alaska and it’s current state that I have heard in a long time. Mr. Justice did and excellent job in presenting the issues in a balanced way. 

    One bit of color I might add; fishing is generally broken into three catagories and is not as united as related. Commercial fishing, sports fishing, and subsistence. These three groups are fighting to different ends over a resource that is and always has been….variable.
