1. POLICY:

Government shutdown bars researchers from Antarctica and freezes climate science

Last Friday, Sebastian Vivancos embarked on the journey of a lifetime: He was headed to Antarctica. But on Tuesday, the National Science Foundation announced Tuesday that it was putting its three Antarctic research bases in caretaker mode, with only skeleton crews remaining to maintain the stations. So on the day Vivancos arrived, he and other researchers were told they would have to turn around and go home.

2. RENEWABLE ENERGY:

Most of the new turbines will come online in four provinces: Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec, Canadian industry officials said this week.
