For more than 40 years, the state has tried, and failed, to bring natural gas from Alaska’s North Slope to market.
In all, there have been at least 10 different versions of the pipeline mega-project. And not one has come close to breaking ground.
This week, Alaska’s Energy Desk is examining some of the reasons why the state has struck out.
Check out the five-part series below:
- Pride week in Juneau featured something new this year: a party just for LGBTQ middle school and high school students.
- The fire has been burning since early June in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. This past weekend, winds spread the fire to within 2 miles of the Sterling Highway.
- Alaska state transportation officials confirmed that the MV Columbia will not sail past Sept. 4. The state plans to assign the ferry’s 62 crew members to other vessels.
- Federal regulators are investigating video footage that appears to show a Holland America Line cruise ship narrowly missing a pod of humpback whales while on its way to Juneau.
