How can one have an advisory panel without including representatives from opposing views? It's rather like having an election with only one candidate. By removing Dr. Gershon Cohen from the cruise ship advisory panel, the state of Alaska is making a clear statement that the concerns of corporations are more important than those of the public, the same public that voted for the Cruise Ship Initiative.
Frankly, I'm more concerned with the fish I eat being free of contamination than I am with the obese profits of the cruise ship industry. Please reinstate Dr. Gershon Cohen.
