Carter Damaska

Social Media Manager

Amor vincit omnia, and it was amor that brought Carter Damaska to Alaska. Originally from Michigan, the Social Media Manager for Alaska Business became a de facto resident in 2021 after visiting his girlfriend here nearly a dozen times and he decided to carpe diem. A bona fide scholar, Carter learned Latin at his alma mater, Hope College, toward a degree in history and classical studies. He would rather have pursued a career as an auto mechanic, being able to identify makes and models at a glance, but underneath the hood, he says, he’s lost beyond checking the oil. Ergo, Carter made a living as a photographer. Shooting weddings, birthdays, corporate events, et cetera led him into videography and web design, and those skills qualify him to manage this magazine’s digital content. While the website waits for visitors, Carter seeks out an audience by engaging them through social media platforms. As Carter might say, “Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum videtur.”

Colorless Green Ammonia Sleeps Furiously
May 2022
Hydrocarbons are a two-edged sword. One edge is hydrogen, storing energy like wound-up springs that is released when combusted with oxygen. The other edge is the carbon atoms the hydrogen is bonded to, which in the grip of oxygen become a climate-warming veil of carbon dioxide gas. Petroleum under the North Slope and methane under Cook Inlet have both potentials: productive energy from hydrogen and destructive pollution from carbon. In a decarbonizing global market, Alaska needs a way to separate the good from the bad.
