From Alaska Economic Trends July 2014 - Alaska has an outside shot of having a million people by 2042. Anchorage will almost certainly be a town of 500,000 by then.

Map of Exxon Valdez Spill Area

From the website: 

The Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Project Jukebox contains interviews with people directly caught up in the oil spill. People talk about how the spill impacted their lives and livelihoods, the cleanup work they did and whether the cleanup was effective, impacts to the fish and wildlife, long-term effects of the spill, and the regulatory and governmental structure of oil spill prevention and response. These stories, plus many more, appear in the book: The Spill: Personal Stories from the Exxon Valdez Disaster, by Stan Jones and Sharon Bushell. (Kenmore, WA: Epicenter Press, 2009). PWSRCAC created this project to preserve a record of the Exxon Valdez disaster to make sure nothing like this ever happens again.

This collection is an example of grant money at work helping us to remember the past.
