In the past five decades, Alaska has seen the number of industries in the area increase tremendously. However, environmental protection bodies are being overwhelmed. Many people think that Alaska is the best escape area from urban pollution. However, the report indicates that air quality is twice as bad as that of Beijing. Alaska has a lot of woo, but there are no gas pipelines. Many of the residents cannot afford fuel, which costs at least $4.5 a gallon. Therefore, they have turned to wood or anything else they can throw in their furnaces, especially during the winter season. The regulator’s effort to ensure that the use of wood in the area is regulated has been faced with intense resistance from the locals. The majority of people feel that the government has failed to address the big issue associated with industrialization (Caldwell, 2012).
