Late-term miscarriages and spontaneous abortions occurred at an unusually high rate among Washington women from 2000 through 2003 — during the same time frame that lead levels were dangerously high in the drinking water in Washington, D.C., a study has found.
Colonized by freed slaves from the United States after 1820, Liberia has been a poster child for what is known in development circles as “the resource curse”—a place where natural bounty has translated into more harm than good. But "land grabbing" isn't restricted to Liberia. Africa is home to fully half of the world’s fertile yet “unused” land. Outsiders have acquired huge swaths of prime acreage from governments eager for foreign cash.
The Obama administration faces the first test of its pledge to oppose funding for overseas coal projects today when the Asian Development Bank board decides on $900 million for a coal plant in Pakistan.
Israel, Jordan and the Palestinians signed a historic water-sharing initiative at the World Bank in Washington on Monday. The deal capped 11 years of water negotiations, and came as the United States continues to push a new effort to forge a peace deal between Israelis and Palestinians.
The World Cup may be great for planet soccer, but it isn't so good for planet Earth.
Here is a remarkable fact about global warming: It might be twice as bad right now were it not for a treaty negotiated by a conservative American president, for an entirely different purpose, based on motives no one has ever quite understood.
Researchers striving to understand the origins of dementia are building the case against a possible culprit: lead exposure early in life.
Ever since he took office three years ago, California Governor Jerry Brown has been trying to build two landmark public works projects to reshape California: a $68 billion high-speed rail system and a $25 billion overhaul of the state's water system, including two massive tunnels under the Delta.
A wildfire season that began with dire warnings that dry conditions had set the stage for a year of flames across California and the West turned out to be among the quietest of the past decade.
Conventional wisdom says environmentalism suffered a near-death experience in 2010, when a sweeping climate change bill ran aground in the Democratic-run Senate. But aspiring eulogists for the green movement have gotten ample material in the years before and since that failure.
Two new studies of perfluorinated compounds in women raise concerns. In the first, the longer the women nursed their babies, the higher the levels of certain perfluorinated chemicals in their babies’ blood. In the second, higher PFC levels in women were associated with early menopause.
The Harper government has dismantled one of the world's top aquatic and fishery libraries as part of its agenda to reduce government as well as limit the role of environmental science in policy decision-making.
When the North American Free Trade Agreement was negotiated, environmentalists warned that it would create a race to the bottom: Countries would compete to gut environmental rules to attract businesses. While those fears were not realized, the trade deal still had unforeseen environmental consequences.
Using time-tested methods and new technologies, scientists are coming closer to solving the mystery of why birds are dying from Type E botulism — a crucial step toward determining whether anything can be done to prevent future die-offs.
Toxic air pollution may be pulverizing the alveoli of hundreds of millions of Chinese but it is also making them more equal, more humorous and even more intelligent, state media claimed on Monday.
The emergence of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” as a major source of domestic oil and gas has often put energy companies and environmentalists at bitter odds. But two developments out West show that doesn’t always have to be the case.
Last Saturday, toxic material leaked from the Ranger uranium mine in the Northern Territory. The mine ceased operation in 2011 after more than 30 years in action, raising the question of what happens to a mine site once the mine closes down.
No other coal deposit on the planet is so big, so close to the surface, and so cheap to mine as the rich seams in eastern Wyoming and Southern Montana. And that's made the Powder River Basin the locus of a national debate on how we develop our fossil fuel reserves.
In a battle that pits the East Coast against the Midwest over the winds that carry dirty air from coal plants, the governors of eight Northeastern states plan to petition the Environmental Protection Agency on Monday to force tighter air pollution regulations on nine Rust Belt and Appalachian states.
Europeans with long-term exposure to particulate pollution from road traffic or industry run a higher risk of premature death, even if air quality meets EU standards, a study said on Monday.
