In the transboundary region of northern British Columbia and Alaska, many large-scale open-pit mines are proposed on the Canadian side of rivers that flow into Alaska, where salmon fishing and tourism are worth $2b annually.

Indispensable Shift: Fukushima, Tip of the Iceberg

With 50 reactors, the nuclear power industry is not properly regulated as proven by Japan's inability to effectively deal with the Fukushima situation.

She orchestrates an impressive array of social media to coordinate and protect the Syrian protesters from President Bashar al-Assad's rule of terror. And while she is out of the regime's reach, there's no telling when the other shoe will drop.
