          For thousands of years, the Arctic has remained at the margins of global affairs. But the region has now found its way to the center of the issues that will challenge and define our world in the twenty-first century: energy security and the struggle for natural resources, climate change and its consequences, the return of great power competition, and the remaking of global trade patterns. Geopolitics expert Charles Emmerson discusses the forces which have shaped the Arctic's history and introduces the players in politics, business, science and society who are struggling to mold its future. Emmerson has been a Global Leadership Fellow and Associate Director of the World Economic Forum, heading the Forum’s Global Risk Network.

            • Conservation, Energy Security and Jobs with Biomass Crops? A Question for the Next Farm Bill

              3 Plays / / 0 Comments

              In the years ahead, U.S. and global markets will demand far more from our farms and forests than ever before. American farmers and foresters will need to produce a lot more food, feed, fuel, and fiber, while at the same time helping to restore the health of our rivers, lakes, and fisheries, improve wildlife habitat and biological diversity, and increase the amount of carbon stored in plants and soils. Extreme weather events and a changing climate will likely make these challenges even more difficult. Both producers and consumers will have to adapt and innovate as never before. The question before Congress now is: Will the next Farm Bill help develop and assure the nation’s capacity to meet these difficult challenges in the years ahead? eesi.org/conservation-energy-security-and-jobs-biomass-crops-question-next-farm-bill-26-mar-2012

                CSG is natural gas, used to cook, run machinery, heat our homes and generate electricity. Almost a third of the gas used in eastern Australia is CSG. NSW imports more than 90% of its gas and needs to develop its own supplies. More at http://www.csganswers.com.au.

Second, the magnitude of the current need to ensure efficient power markets and access to diverse energy resources makes development of robust transmission infrastructure a national priority. The shale gas revolution provides an additional reason to strategically plan the expansion and modernization of the grid while addressing pipeline constraints and access to renewable resources. Finally, these developments are being dealt with in a more competitive bulk power environment, including competition to own, build, and construct important new transmission facilities. New entities and joint ventures are emerging to augment the historical role of incumbent load-serving entities with respect to strengthening the grid regionally and inter-regionally. This program followed our "Transmission 201" in March and was held in conjunction with the forthcoming briefing by EESI and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) on June 18. WIRES is a national non-profit association of investor-, cooperatively-, and publicly-owned companies that promote investment in the high-voltage electric transmission system, to ensure reliable, reasonably priced electricity, access to diverse resources, and competitive markets (www.wiresgroup.com).
