Alaska abounds with natural resources. The trick, of course, is how to get money for them. It seems crass, but Alaska’s industry IS its natural resources, whether they’re cut down, mined out, snatched up in nets, meticulously preserved to show off to the participants of Alaska’s tourism industry, or an integral part of a subsistence lifestyle. Alaska works endlessly to make sure that all of its natural resources can make money in harmony; a productive and respectful balance can be achieved. Of course, some items need to leave the state to realize their best value, in particular, the natural resources Alaska has locked deep underground. In Alaska, the transportation process often begins with a drill or an explosive charge.
