"For the military, they're really concerned about things like installations," said Chad Briggs, Director of Public Policy and Administration for the University of Alaska Anchorage's College of Business and Public Policy. "If you have installations that are built on permafrost and that's going to be melting. If you have wildfires that are going to be affecting energy lines. Whether they have to be protecting pipelines or power lines. It affects sort of how they're going to be planning for the future."
