SPOTLIGHT

1. FOOD SECURITY:

Aquaculture is hooked on chemicals, an addiction that must be fixed in the future -- study

In part of the search to find ways to feed future populations, given the mounting impacts of extreme weather on traditional farming, many have begun to turn their attention to the ocean. Over the past 40 years, aquaculture has grown rapidly, accounting for half of human-consumed seafood in 2011 and continuing at a 6 percent annual increase in production. But along with increased demand and rapid expansion are many of the same problems presented by industrialized agriculture.

2. NATIONS:

Africa, where 60% are without power, sees fossil fuels as a bridge

Renewable energy is in Africa's future. But coal and natural gas is the future for the power-starved continent. That message from energy ministers as part of the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit yesterday came as officials also emphasized how deeply threatened the region is by climate change. But on a continent where 600 million people still lack access to basic energy services, one leader after another said tapping into new power -- clean or dirty -- is their top priority.
