1. OFFSHORE WIND

Can a DOE competition jump-start wind power in America's vast offshore?

Right about now, offshore wind developers across the United States have started holding their breath. Next month, the Department of Energy will announce three competition winners that could blaze a path for offshore wind's future in the United States, where, despite the best efforts of a few determined mavericks, no utility-scale offshore wind farms have yet been built.

2. NEGOTIATIONS

Can a diplomat who fasts on Earth Day deal with hard-liners at the bargaining table?

For Naderev "Yeb" Saño, fasting for climate change has become a way of life. The once-anonymous diplomat from the Philippines rose to fame in environmental circles last year when, saddened by the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan and frustrated by the slow pace of international action, he fasted through two weeks of U.N. climate change treaty talks. Reached on the eve of President Obama's trip to the Philippines, which begins today, Saño discussed the ongoing typhoon recovery efforts, his country's unusual alignment with global warming hard-liners like Saudi Arabia and his expectations for a 2015 climate deal in Paris.
