Back in the United States, the majority of the National Park Service Advisory Board has resigned in protest of the fact that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has not met with them even once since Trump took office one year ago. The board’s chairman, Tony Knowles, a former governor of Alaska, said, “The department showed no interest in learning about or continuing to use the forward-thinking agenda of science [when it comes to] the effect of climate change, protection of the ecosystems, education.” He was one of nine members of the 12-person panel who quit on Monday in protest.
