SPOTLIGHT

1. ELECTRICITY

A lopsided fight between coal and renewable energy in Poland

CZERNIEWICE, Poland -- Rows of polished black solar panels stand at attention in a former wheat field in this rural village outside of Warsaw. When they are connected to the grid next year, these 800 megawatts of power will double the country's installed solar capacity. But first the lights must go on in the minds of legislators in Warsaw. The operators say that in the absence of a strong renewable energy law, they expect to lose money on their $1.3 million investment.

2. STATES

Some states ignore climate change in disaster plans, but coastal states are on alert

When it comes to planning for climate change disasters, some states are far ahead of others. That conclusion came last week in a study from Columbia Law School finding that many states -- particularly in landlocked areas of the country -- are not incorporating climate change into their state hazard mitigation plans. That lapse makes them more vulnerable to extreme events such as heat waves, hurricanes, floods and drought, the analysis says.
