I happened to see a presentation on this today at one of the local Chambers of Commerce. It was very interesting and kinda sad. It was stated that even with all the energy Alaska has, because it's not readily available to its citizens that Alaska is equal to third world countries with development and available resources by 2015. People cannot afford housing and utilities and it's getting worse. Because of this the economy could be declining because the next generations cannot afford to live here.
At the presentation there was lists of chambers of commences, cities and companies that supported it.
I kept in the back of my mind that the person doing this presentation works for it and of course is going to make it sound like it’s the best thing since sliced bread. But I am curious about the opinions of people here. So far from what I have studied it looks like a good thing. I wanted to get some opinions before I do this.
