    I t began in the panic of an energy crisis, with power prices in California, Oregon and elsewhere in the West hitting stratospheric heights. Two years later, another crisis -- the blackout in the Midwest and Northeast -- may have provided a new national energy policy the final push it needs to overcome a mountain of regional and partisan obstacles in Congress. Now, Republican leaders in a House and Senate conference committee say they are close to producing a final energy bill, putting President Bush on the brink of achieving one of his most controversial and far-reaching policy goals. A...

    Summary: Why has Congress has yet to vote to allow exploration for oil in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). [] It’s not hard to figure out why Congress has yet to vote to allow exploration for oil in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). It’s the easy way out. You simply declare your love for the environment, your desire that America find some other way to solve its fuel needs—less consumption, more use of alternative fuels, more fuel purchased abroad—and your opposition to fouling the so-called pristine tundra north of the Arctic Circle, and you’re all set. But as...

    Perhaps you have seen the first installments of the series on the arctic meltdown that the CBS TV network is doing for sweeps month. In the first piece they discussed how the arctic region has warmed dramatically in recent years and showed how the arctic ice has retreated along the edges and grown thinner. They promise to have scientists report on the possible cause in follow-up stories this week. They focused on changes near the Arctic Ocean town of Barrow, Alaska. Ice had retreated from the shoreline near Barrow and temperatures have warmed accordingly. They talked about mosquitos being observed,...

    In the late 1990s, as scientists were reaching consensus that the Arctic had gone through 30 years of significant climate change, they began reading the first published papers about the Arctic Oscillation, a phenomenon reported to have hemisphere-wide effects. In short order the arctic-science and the global-change communities were galvanized, says Richard Moritz, polar oceanographer with the UW's Applied Physics Laboratory and lead author of a review of recent Arctic climate change in the Aug. 30 special polar-science issue of Science. "We've learned more about the dynamics of post-glacial arctic climate change in the last five years than in the...

    ANCHOR POINT, Alaska To live in Alaska when the average temperature has risen about seven degrees over the last 30 years means learning to cope with a landscape that can sink, catch fire or break apart in the turn of a season. In the village of Shishmaref, on the Chukchi Sea just south of the Arctic Circle, it means high water eating away so many houses and buildings that people will vote next month on moving the entire village inland. In Barrow, the northernmost city in North America, it means coping with mosquitoes in a place where they once were...
