A transatlantic pact that would create a market of 800 million people and allow Germany to sell more of its luxury cars, trains and chemicals in the U.S. has faltered in recent months. In a twist that few expected, European concerns about the threat to food and the environment have found their strongest voice in Germany.
Citing “extensive corrosion,” federal investigators said an MCHM chemical storage tank at the Freedom Industries site along the Elk River likely was leaking prior to the Jan. 9 spill that contaminated the drinking water for 300,000 people across the region.
Just as Texas and federal regulators have patched up differences over air pollution, they could split on a regulatory proposal involving water.
Soldiers know they might be felled by a sniper’s bullet in Baghdad or a roadside bomb in the gullies of Afghanistan. They might even expect it. But waterborne carcinogens are not an enemy whose ambush they prepare for.
Researchers across the board say they just don’t know what is causing the jellyfish invasion. It could be climate change, including warmer waters. It could be a depletion of oxygen in coastal waters because of runoff from the land, or some response to overfishing.
When the Dallas County Medical Society asked Texas environmental regulators in October to increase pollution controls on coal-fired power plants, they knew it would be a tough sell.
Given its vital role, shockingly little is known about the placenta. Only recently, for instance, did scientists start to suspect that the placenta may not be sterile, as once thought, but may have a microbiome of its own.
What if instead of trying to fix the world, we fixed ourselves? A New York University professor suggests that by changing our underlying biology – altering our size or diet, for instance – we could create greener humans.
Increasing levels of contaminated groundwater, the risks and costs they pose to communities and individuals, and the expansion of tillable acreage (and thus more use of nitrogen fertilizer) all have coalesced to demand farms do more to limit their contributions to nitrate contamination.
The City of Windsor deserves credit for refusing to be railroaded. It has balked at signing an overly restrictive confidentiality agreement with railways moving hazardous goods through municipal borders. And there’s good reason for pushing back.
The cheeseburger is simply a symbol of a food system gone awry. All the products of industrial food consumption have externalities that would be lessened by a system that makes as its primary goal the links among nutrition, fairness and sustainability.
Cleaner air and a more sustainable future are not Democratic or Republican issues; they are essential national priorities. That’s why this rule should be fully implemented now, without delay.
The fate of southwest Alaska's Pebble deposit is one of the biggest environmental decisions facing Barack Obama’s administration since the Keystone XL pipeline. If approved, it could become the biggest open pit mine in North America. But it’s not just Pebble’s size that has many people upset; it’s the location.
Landfill operators in North Dakota have been catching unscrupulous or uninformed oil producers trying to unload hazardous radioactive waste into the municipal dump for years. With growing public concern in the state over safe disposal of oilfield waste North Dakota is responding, with a batch of new rules, scientific studies and risk assessments aimed at low-level radioactive oilfield waste.
Eight residents of Dapu, a rural town in China dotted with smelters and chemical plants, say families of children diagnosed with lead exposure were offered milk, but only if they surrendered their test results. The milk, residents recall officials saying, would flush the lead out of the children's bodies.
Consumers will see no shortages of California-grown fruits, nuts and vegetables this year despite one of the worst droughts in state history, but that's because farmers are draining groundwater reserves and leaving no insurance should heavy rains fail to materialize next winter, UC Davis researchers say.
As California and the American West dry up, a way of life is threatened.
Dust from the Sahara desert provides most of the iron found in the Atlantic ocean, according to research that also sheds light on how the oceans help sequester carbon dioxide we're adding to the atmosphere.
Air pollution has decreased significantly since sanctions were temporarily lifted in January. As Iran and the U.S. attempt to hammer out a comprehensive nuclear deal before the July 20 deadline, the capital city’s newly cleaner air hangs in the balance.
Governments have agreed new food standards calling for zero residue of veterinary drugs in meat, and limiting lead pollution in infant formula and toxins in maize, a UN body said Tuesday.
