Arctic energy meeting focused on climate, fossil fuels, geothermal

The Arctic Energy Summit’s Technology conference just wrapped up in Anchorage yesterday. Part of the International Polar Year activities, the conference brought together representatives from 14 nations to share ideas about extractive and renewable energy concepts. Mead Treadwell, chairman of the U.S. Arctic Research Commission, says the conference highlighted the problem for Arctic nations who are feeling the brunt of climate change, yet are dependent on fossil fuel as a large part of their cash flow.
