WYOMING WIND FARM
CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A proposed wind energy project in southern Wyoming could provide power to more than 70,000 homes in several communities in northern Colorado. The Roundhouse Renewable Energy Project, which would be operated by Utah-based Enyo Renewable Energy, would use 75 turbines to generate 150 megawatts of energy annually for homes in Fort Collins, Loveland, Longmont and Estes Park, the Wyoming Tribune Eagle reported Sunday.

POWELL — By air and on foot, scientists have now finished capturing and collaring 60 moose in the Bighorn Mountains with sophisticated transmitters for the range's first study of the storied species. The culmination of the collaring effort by state biologists, researchers and game wardens is the first step in understanding the population, which was translocated to the Bighorns beginning in 1948. The study may also contain answers to other herds in the state, helping scientists understand why the species is struggling. By Mark Davis, Powell Tribune. An AP Member Exchange. SENT: 880 words.
SCIENCE SAYS-WILDFIRE FUEL
As temperatures rise in the U.S. West, so do the flames. The years with the most acres burned by wildfires have some of the hottest temperatures, an Associated Press analysis of fire and weather data found. As human-caused climate change has warmed the world over the past 35 years, the land consumed by flames has more than doubled. Experts say the way global warming worsens wildfires comes down to the basic dynamics of fire. Fires need ignition, oxygen and fuel. And what's really changed is fuel — the trees, brush and other plants that go up in flames. By Seth Borenstein. SENT: 930 words, photos.
