Three years ago, before the shale-gas industry started booming in Ohio, oil and gas companies had permits for five hydraulically fractured wells in Monroe County. As of June 28, the day a well pad caught fire there, oil and gas companies had permits for 135 wells that either had been or could be hydraulically fractured.
In an area peppered with wells pulling energy resources from below ground — and many pumping wastewater from the process back into it through injection wells — an old question resurfaced: Could the same geological tinkering that has revved a formidable economic engine also trigger potentially damaging earthquakes?
Monday is the 100th anniversary of the death of the last passenger pigeon in North America. And conservationists are marking the date as an opportunity to rekindle efforts to protect species currently at risk.
No part of the Mediterranean Sea is immune to plastic pollution, and area to the east of Malta hosts a particularly high concentration of such debris, a research expedition has discovered.
Heat, massive wildfires and violent thunderstorms: The summer of 2014 will be remembered for its intensity and disruption. Climate scientists say it is also a look into the future.
The World Health Organisation is warning climate change is the greatest threat to human health this century. It has just concluded its first-ever global conference on climate change, and a New Zealand doctor who was there says the effects of a warming world are already being felt.
With 95 percent of the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community’s reservation borders on the water, the tribe is concerned about the rise in sea level and storm surges expected as the planet warms.
The four-story tall mountains of black petroleum coke are gone from the banks of the Detroit River, but they’re still providing a campaign weapon for Democratic Rep. Gary Peters in his Senate race against Republican Terri Lynn Land.
When fracking causes controversy, it’s often because of wells. Often overlooked is a way to dispose of waste: massive surface ponds in which fracking water is stored until it can be recycled or buried or is left to slowly evaporate. Now environmentalists say a recent controversy over the ponds in Utah highlights their increasing impact across the U.S.
A group of northeast Iowans effectively is keeping large frac sand mine companies from mining silica-rich sand in their county by building a consortium that set aside politics and focused on dealing with the matter locally, instead of with state intervention.
A general contractor in Colorado's Grand Valley, Duke Cox says the first time he became aware that drilling for gas might be a problem was back in the early 2000s when he happened to attend a local public hearing on oil and gas development.
The unveiling in São Paulo of Brazilian presidential candidate Marina Silva's platform for government on Friday was a sometimes bizarre mix of tradition and modernity, conservatism and radicalism, doubt and hope: but for many of those present, it highlighted the very real prospect of an environmentalist taking the reins of a major country.
It melted the rubber of his goggles. Twenty-nine years later, Brian Martin still isn't certain what kind of chemical he burrowed into at the bottom of the St. Clair River in September 1985. But one thing is certain: Martin's eerie discovery revealed years of pollution along the St. Clair River.
Some plaintiffs were dead long before their next of kin filed suit against Ringwood chemical manufacturer Rohm and Haas, blaming air and groundwater contamination for creating an alleged cancer cluster.
British Columbia says there's nothing to fear about the mysterious, blue, waxy sheen floating on the lake below the mine tailings disaster. But local residents and a marine biologist say the still-unknown bluish-green film burned their skin like a jellyfish sting.
University of Texas at Arlington researchers have unveiled a study that found potentially unhealthy levels of arsenic in water wells scattered throughout North Texas. Thirty percent of wells within 1.8 miles of active natural gas drilling showed an increase in heavy metals, including arsenic. The maximum concentration of arsenic from a fracking area was 18 times higher.
If you are a frequent visitor to Walkway Over the Hudson state park, you may have noticed an oily sheen appearing on the Hudson River from time to time. It is not a spill. It's the legacy of an old manufactured gas plant that sits at the foot of Dutchess Avenue in Poughkeepsie.
In the skies over Kakadu, a 67-year-old man peers from the window of a tiny plane as it wheels over the mining town of Jabiru and the nearby open-cut uranium mine. The vista is breathtaking but former Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan, is more interested in the mine than the view.
Shirley Mae Almer, 72, survived lung cancer and a brain tumor. But not peanut butter. One of America’s favorite foods - tainted with salmonella - killed her, just four days before Christmas in 2008.
The frequency and volume of Bakken crude rail shipments are driven by oil production in North Dakota that is second only to Texas in the U.S. Production there rose from 81,000 barrels a day in 2006 to 900,000 barrels a day last year.
