The world is getting warmer. The weather is getting weirder. And in Alaska, we have a front row seat. This summer, Alaska’s Energy Desk returns with all-new episodes of our podcast, Midnight Oil. Season Two is called The Big Thaw. Last season, we looked back -- at the state’s roller-coaster history with oil.
