Tasha Anderson

Managing Editor

Tasha is the Managing Editor of Alaska Business, which suits her obsession with organization and her joy at seeing a well-designed spreadsheet. At home, in addition to reading, sewing, video games, and whatever one does with yarn, she is perhaps overly enthused with her variety of indoor plants that live or die dependent entirely upon their tolerance for over-watering combined with neglect. She is an Alaskan at heart and has lived here most her of her life, with a brief exception when she left to pursue her education at the University of Wyoming, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in English with minors in professional writing and Latin. She took Latin classes to fulfill her language requirement and ended up loving it, earning the minor when her professor informed her that she was only three classes short of it anyway. The language is, in fact, dead. She knows this. But the English skills she picked up while learning Latin serve her daily in her efforts to make sure every comma on every page of Alaska Business is exactly where it should—or shouldn’t—be.

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.
