Scientists have flown through wildfires to learn more about the air pollution they produce, and the news is worse than expected.
Sound pollution poses as a severe health hazard in the city. On city streets sound pollution are caused by hydraulic horns of vehicles.
More than 70% of the companies recently investigated by the Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection failed to meet the government’s emission standards and regulations.
Measures to cut air pollution need to be extended beyond urban areas, say representatives of six wildlife organisations. Plus Dr Richard Carter warns that avoiding main roads won’t protect you from small particulates
From coast to coast and beyond, American politicians are taking on the challenge at a local level
It's sometimes hard to understand how good or bad the air quality is around you, but a new air pollution map for the city of Oakland, California, offers the highest-resolution view to date of air quality on a block-by-block basis, according to a new study.
Popsicles made of pollution
The research assumes significance since India is the fourth largest emitter of carbon dioxide, which affects both environment and health. Carbon dioxide, when released into the atmosphere, is known to remain for around 100 years.
One of Adelaide's main beaches has reopened after a pollution scare shut down a nearly half-kilometre section of it last week.
Beaches in the county’s South Bay have long suffered from dirty swimming conditions. From the coveted surfing spot at the Tijuana Slough to the mellow beaches along Coronado’s Silver Strand, sewage from south of the U.S.-Mexico border regularly pollutes these shorelines.
The British Government has failed in a court bid to delay publication of its air pollution strategy.
Another study has just come out—revealing that plastic pollution has been discovered in deep-sea sediments and surface waters in the Antarctic marine ecosystem. The similarities between this research and the study I wrote about earlier in the week on plastics in the Arctic are very troubling.
Earthworks released a video taken April 25 showing massive amounts of otherwise invisible air pollution on public lands in Utah, just west of Grand Junction, Colorado. The video comes right as Senate leaders say they will vote on whether to use the Congressional Review Act to permanently revoke the Bureau of Land Management's natural gas waste rule that would significantly reduce this pollution in January 2018.
A project that would export 44 million tons of coal a year from Longview, Washington, would raise the cancer risk for people living near rail lines, create traffic jams with its mile-long coal trains and increase global greenhouse gas emissions by 2 million tons.
Diatoms between 0.01 and 0.02 mm, consisting of a single cell surrounded by an artificially colored silica skeleton. The alga in green is present in clean environments, while the orange one lives in more polluted water.
In pre-industrial times, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere stood at 280 parts per million. And that number has been rising ever since, warming the planet by 1.8 degrees F (1 degree C) along the way.
An apparent hiatus in global warming that spawned a decade-long controversy has had no impact on long-term climate projections, a detailed analysis has concluded.
Growth Energy and the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) joined the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) in submitting comments in response to Environment and Climate Change Canada’s (ECCC) Discussion Paper on a Federal Clean Fuel Standard (CFS).
Last week, a new study published in in the journal Science Advances found that the Arctic Ocean is accumulating high concentrations of plastics―specifically in the Greenland and Barents seas.
Plastic bags, straws, bottles, and toys clutter the world's oceans, from the depths of the Mariana Trench up to the frigid North Pole.
Imagine an area 34 times the size of Manhattan. Now imagine it covered ankle-deep in plastic waste — piles of soda bottles and plastic bags, takeout containers by the mile, drinking straws as far as the eye can see.
Researchers may have found a solution to the problem of plastic pollution–a caterpillar’s larvae that have the very unusual ability to digest plastic.
The Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration has funded preliminary research into roads made from recycled plastic waist instead of conventional asphalt. The preliminary results are positive.
