Today’s notes from your Tidepool editor:
Two strong stories today on air and ocean pollution affecting our region in the Seattle Times. Also a journal piece in the New York Times on the Satsop nuclear plant. In BC, the Gitga’at First Nation of Hartley Bay gets a fly-in visit and an “award” from Premier Gordon Campbell for rescuing passengers from the Queen of the North—but all they really want is the lingering oil slick cleaned up. And more on my latest obsession—green hunters—this time, from Southern Oregon.

And on Tidepool’s front page, a long piece on the Albertan oil rush, and an investigative report reveals the recent oil spill on Alaska’s North Slope went undetected for days. Also, why are Alaska’s senators meddling in that media-drenched Cape Cod wind farm? You need an energy news fix? We got it.

Have a great Earth Day. And in breathless anticipation of Arbor Day … have you seen “It’s Arbor Day, Charlie Brown”? (It’s on DVD—were you a kid in the 70s? Then you’ll like it.) I always welcome your contributions and comments.
