      Parish, David (University of Alaska Anchorage. Bookstore, 2019-02-04)
      In his highly acclaimed book, Facts of the Matter: Looking Past Today's Rhetoric on the Environment and Responsible Development, Alaskan David Parish promotes a fact-based approach toward environmental stewardship, responsible development, improved public health, and the elimination of poverty. In it, he examines how the traditional approaches to natural resource development, with the "us versus them" divides, can be bridged. David Parish has worked around the globe as an independent business and nonprofit consultant, lobbyist, and entrepreneur. For over 30 years, Alaska has been his home base for his diverse set of local, national and international clients that include energy and mining industry leaders as well as environmental activists and Indigenous leaders. “His goal is to spearhead a real conversation about environment, economic growth, and the needs of our increasing global population.”
