I lived in Alaska for 22 years. When I first arrived in 1984, Portage Glacier (south of Anchorage) was huge, and in winter ran all the way up to the visitor center there. People could walk out on the ice very far. When I left in 2006, you could not even see what was left of the glacier because it had retreated so far back. The only way you could see the glacier was to take the boat tour to it. Shishmaref is falling into the ocean. Beluga whales were plentiful in 1984; it's now a rare occurrence to see one. The warming is real, and trumplethinskin thinks he knows more than the scientists. What a joke the Department of Interior has become. I worked at both Fish and Wildlife Service and the Bureau of Land Management for years, and the changes were very obvious.
Hmmmm....amazing how repubs don't believe science when it comes to climate change but they do when it comes to unborn babies and what they feel

Loyal to whose flag?
Articulate and intelligent and committed to the Interior Department mission. So of course he was hounded out.
Bright and Right
Getting rid of qualified people is the right-wing's strategy. IF he is even replaced, it will be by someone who once took a science class.
The real dilemma is whether to leave to retain whatever credibility you might have left or to stay and try to keep the administration from jumping off the right wing cliff. It was clear from the list of people Trump was appointing that this is what we'd get.
Draining the swamp, filling it with sewage.
Just like pol pot and countless other dictatorships they go after the educated ones first. They don’t want truth to interfere with their fascist ideology. America is close to its end. The chaos has already started.
This is not a Republican or Democrat thing it's a government corruption thing. When you expose the truth here in Yosemite National Park about the corruption, incompetence and waste; you are bullied, harassed, defamed, discredited, set up for termination and loss of housing privileges. Look at all the trolls trying to discredit the facts.
Zinke and his Eco Henchmen are hoping to sell off our national treasures to the highest bidders (Big OIL/AG/MINING) and fly around in taxpayer-funded private jets while they do it. This good person is a loss to the agency that so desperately needs truth-tellers. The Little Orange Man and his band of eco-criminals deserve to be drop-kicked out of office -today.
Dear Mr. Zinke, Does not each political party reorganize subordinates to fit their agenda?
Its funny to live among these people who want to slash and burn, and waste our country's resources. Get what they can, now, and leave nothing for their children. Funny in a bad way.
