As Washington still fights over whether climate change is real, people across the country are paying costs scientists ascribe to it. All over the Midwest, from Chicago to Indianapolis and Milwaukee, residents face difficult issues as changing weather patterns collide with aging infrastructure. The costs — for governments, insurance companies and homeowners — are often measured in quality of life.
All of California is in a state of emergency because of the prolonged drought, now in its third year. And it’s more than just Californians who are feeling the impact – the state uses its scarce water to provide the nation with more food than any other state.
The police have cordoned off a town in northwestern China after a man there died from a case of the pneumonic plague. Pneumonic plague is more contagious and deadly, commonly spreading from human to human in droplets expelled when coughing.
The last journey of the ill-fated Costa Concordia cruise ship to the scrap yard is causing outrage in Corsica where it has been dubbed “a floating bomb”. The rusting hulk, laden with hydrocarbons and polluted seawater, is due to begin a four-day journey to a scrapyard in Genoa today.
More than 310 public drinking water systems in Texas — nearly 4.5 percent of the state's regulated public water systems — have quality issues that haven’t been adequately addressed, federal officials told the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. It is the highest percentage in the nation.
Raising beef for the American dinner table does far more damage to the environment than producing pork, poultry, eggs or dairy, a new study says.
Building a bike-friendly city requires clear, measurable trade-offs. Adding bike lanes reduces space for cars and irritates drivers; that's undeniable. But making the city safe and hospitable for cyclists can also reduce carbon emissions and overall congestion. That's a worthwhile objective.
Renewable energy - wind, solar and other alternative technologies - is essential if the U.S. is to wean itself off nuclear and coal during the next 20 to 25 years. Nuclear should not be in the mix. It’s costly, it poses safety, health and environmental risks, and it is becoming prohibitively expensive to build new plants.
Wandering around Australia, you might want to watch your step — the country currently has more than 50,000 abandoned mines. Some represent a significant threat from contamination; others may pose safety risks; and still others may be losing their value as cultural heritage.
Making sustainable choices requires learning about products — where they come from, how they’re made and where they go when we’re done using them. We have to look holistically at the full life cycle.
Responsible fish eating won't solve all our ocean and fish problems around the globe. We still have to stop polluting the oceans and address climate change, which is hurting our nation's water. But for starters, one thing you can do when you go out to eat or cook at home is pick fish that are good for you and good for the planet.
On the last day of June, Roger Mangía Vega watched an oil slick and a mass of dead fish float past this tiny Kukama Indian community and into the Marañón River, a major tributary of the Amazon. Community leaders called the emergency number for Petroperu, the state-run operator of the 845-kilometer pipeline that pumps crude oil from the Amazon over the Andes Mountains to a port on Peru’s northern coast.
Although the U.S. has spent millions to build incinerators in Afghanistan to avoid exposing anyone to toxic smoke from open burning, American troops sent waste to an Afghan-operated open pit for five months last year, according to an inspector general’s report.
A giant power plant that kills tiny fish eggs is leading engineers, government officials, politicians and advocates of all stripes into a fourth year of debate about which side represents concern for the environment, and whether the fish are actually the issue.
The Great Stink of the 1800s alerted politicians to the filth in the Thames. The Victorian sewers fixed it, but trouble is brewing again. Is a clean river just a pipe dream?
Smoking during pregnancy has been linked to a higher chance of the child having attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and a new study suggests women who use nicotine replacement products may also have children with an elevated risk.
Excelyte is an EPA-approved solution that addresses major controversies associated with fracking: pollution of groundwater with toxic chemicals, release of hydrogen sulfide that endangers oil field worker's lives, and excess wastewater.
In an extraordinary rebuke to a doctor at one of America's top hospitals, the U.S. Department of Labor has informed about 1,100 coal miners that their claims for black lung benefits may have been wrongly denied, the department's deputy secretary told senators Tuesday.
Pennsylvania regulators were unprepared for the fracking-fueled boom in natural gas production during the past decade, putting drinking water supplies at risk, the state's watchdog said.
Under the Clean Power Plan - U.S. EPA's ambitious proposal to curb greenhouse gas emissions from existing power plants - states are asked to meet widely divergent targets.
