Ever since the mammoth, government-owned utility Hydro-Quebec lost the lead foreign purchaser for its vast James Bay hydroelectric project, Canadians have been wondering whether Hydro-Quebec will go ahead with the mega-project on schedule--or at all. The James Bay project is a sprawling complex of hundreds of dams, dikes and generating stations in the northernmost reaches of Quebec. If its construction were halted completely, the effects would be felt throughout the Quebec economy and beyond.

Pig manure in Chile will keep neon lights glowing on Tokyo's Ginza in years to come. It's a grand north-south trade-off to slow global warming: You reduce your "greenhouse gas" emissions so I don't have to cut back on mine. In this case, a Chilean pork producer is eliminating methane fumes from animal waste and selling the resulting "credits" to Japanese and Canadian utilities, requiring that much less of them as they reduce carbon dioxide emissions at their coal- and oil-burning power plants.

A major solar flare on the sun Thursday hurled a surge of radiation toward the Earth that may disrupt communications and electrical power transmission over the next two days, government scientists said. Norman Cohen, a geophysical forecaster at the Space Environment Services Center run by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Boulder, Colo., said he was sending alerts to electrical utilities in Canada and in the northern United States to expect possible power surges.
