Climate Change Institute’s Arctic Research Cited in Press Herald Report

The University of Maine’s Climate Change Institute (CCI) was mentioned in a Portland Press Herald article about Sen. Angus King partnering with Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska to influence U.S. policies on Arctic issues. King and Murkowski announced the creation of an “Arctic Caucus” in the Senate, stating they believe the United States should be a leader in guiding international policy decisions that affect the Arctic, according to the article. The partnership shows that Maine for the first time wants to play a role in shaping U.S. policy on Arctic issues and that CCI has focused much of its research on the Arctic, the article states.
