SPOTLIGHT

1. ADAPTATION:

One year after Sandy, N.J. towns accelerate dune building, despite holdouts

Harvey Cedars (population 344), a beach town perched on New Jersey's chain of barrier islands, managed to duck a head-on blow from Superstorm Sandy. Local officials credit a dune built about five years ago for blocking the storm surge that Sandy sent smashing into the ribbon-thin island. That dune is now at the center of a major shift that could strengthen local officials against oceanfront homeowners who refuse to surrender strips of their beach property to the federal government for a much more ambitious program of dune construction.

2. BUSINESS:

Global demand for fossil fuels continues to rise

Despite concerted global efforts to reduce carbon emissions through the expansion of clean and renewable energy resources, fossil fuels continued to dominate the global energy sector in 2012, according to new figures released yesterday by the Worldwatch Institute.
