EAST WENATCHEE, Washington—Hands on the wheel, eyes squinting against the winter sun, Lauren Miehe eases his Land Rover down the main drag and tells me how he used to spot promising sites to build a bitcoin mine, back in 2013, when he was a freshly arrived techie from Seattle and had just discovered this sleepy rural community. The attraction then, as now, was the Columbia River, which we can glimpse a few blocks to our left. Bitcoin mining—the complex process in which computers solve a complicated math puzzle to win a stack of virtual currency—uses an inordinate amount of electricity, and thanks to five hydroelectric dams that straddle this stretch of the river, about three hours east of Seattle, miners could buy that power more cheaply here than anywhere else in the nation. Long before locals had even heard the words “cryptocurrency” or “blockchain,” Miehe and his peers realized that this semi-arid agricultural region known as the Mid-Columbia Basin was the best place to mine bitcoin in America—and maybe the world. The trick, though, was finding a location where you could put all that cheap power to work. You needed an existing building, because in those days, when bitcoin ...

SALEM, Oregon - Two bills climate action bills advanced in the Oregon legislature this past week, passing their respective policy committees in the state Senate and House. While dismal news just keeps pouring out of the nation’s capital on climate change, states are increasingly showing momentum to lead the way. Trump and Pruitt are on a collision course with science and dead set on putting America last in clean energy innovation, giving away public lands and waters to fossil fuel companies and doing the bidding of their dirty energy campaign donors. But states like Oregon can rise to the occasion to keep clean energy momentum alive. The two bills have some differences that will need to be ironed out, but both would limit carbon pollution from the state’s biggest polluters and seek to allow Oregon to join a western carbon market that has been up and running since 2012 in California and has more recently successfully added two Canadian provinces: Quebec and Ontario. ...
