The advancement of science and the public sharing and vetting of scientific information are progressive values.

Through following the links to articles at Alaska Report by Doug O'Harra, I've discovered the science blog, Far North Science. It is a collective effort. Most of the articles apply to our Alaska environment, and often, to rapid changes occurring here, due to climate change.
I've added Far North Science to the Progressive Alaska Blogs category here, which continues to grow.
