Our salmon are stressed
We've been monitoring stream temperatures across the Cook Inlet watershed since 2002. It is clear that salmon are already experiencing thermal stress and that, over the next 50 years, more streams will get warmer more often.
Kenai Peninsula Food Hub
95% of Alaska’s food is currently imported. Purchasing local food supports local farms, increases our region’s food security, protects the environment, creates jobs and boosts the local economy.

Real time streaming of air quality around the Kenai Peninsula.

We are hosting a sensor as part of a graduate project that has real time streaming of air quality in Kachemak Bay and other places in Alaska. Check out the link below to explore how the fire is affecting the air we breathe.

I actually went to the meeting. Did anyone from Cook Inletkeeper?
and is this one of the projects where incidental oil is royalty and tax free in the search for natural gas? (As in other agreements involving exploration in Cook Inlet?) Sweetheart deal, correct me if otherwise..
No matter what our opinion regarding further oil exploration and drilling, the carbon load and danger to our existence on this planet is a problem we all face—aware or not. We desperately need to slow and change our dependence on oil— for all of us! We need to keep the oil in the ground.
Fear-mongering at its finest. The BOEM established conditions designed to minimize impact on the wildlife in the area. Your eco-extremism aside, a balanced plan between environmental stewardship (not your over-zealous view) and responsible resource development is what the majority of Alaskans (again, not your ilk) expect and appreciate. Sorry that doesn’t fit with your warped world-view.
I call it Big Oils LAST STAND and this one they cannot win, we can Not let them win on this!
This seems like a marine version of when they tested nuclear bombs materials years ago in Nev and NM to measure its effects as people's skin boiled off their face....
Aaron Fleenor May want to cancel the other meeting
So disappointed and angry at this administration and the greedy guts who have no regard for anything but $$.
Expect to see more stranded and dead whales.
a pox on this project.. 🙁
WTF!! That will totally impact marine mammals in the surrounding areas!!! 😡😡😡🤬🤬🤬
This is not okay.
Why? For what purpose?

Climate Crisis Sends Stream Temperatures Off the Charts As Alaskans suffer through the smoke, haze and danger of a record-breaking heat wave, Alaska’s salmon are suffering too. On July 7th, stream temperatures topped 81.7 F (27.6 C) in the Deshka River, a major salmon stream on the west side of Cook Inlet in the Mat […]
