Usually we pay our light and heat bills with no questions asked. But what about 20 years from now, when millions more will have moved to California? Already, eight energy cooperatives exist, wherein large companies band together, cut down on energy they don't use and sell it back to a utility. The gas or electric company then supplies individual customers. John B.

This possibility goes to the heart of the mystery of how some animals sense Earth's magnetism. And, remarkable as it may seem, it has begun to receive some indirect experimental support. Some biologists, like Klaus Schulten of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, think the visual sense of some animals may be involved in their ability to sense magnetic fields.

In a deal that could become typical as California's utilities are increasingly immersed in the competitive world of deregulation, Southern California Gas Co. and Southern California Edison Co. have signed an agreement with the city of Irvine to finance energy efficiency improvements for city facilities at no cost--or risk--to Irvine residents.
