Air pollution means death in cities

Air pollution means death in cities

Throughout Eurasia, we have several developments in regulations that may protect your health. Particulate matter of both PM2.5 and PM10 sizes is being recognised as an enormous health risk, almost parallel to the former risks taken by farmers, mine and other workers with pneumonocosis.

US lakes have increased threat of toxin

US lakes have increased threat of toxin

Can global warming create more dangerous water problems than we had predicted? It seems now that shallow lakes are in great danger of contamination if we feed them agricultural fertilizers. Chinese, African and now American water supplies are regularly affected and made unusable with Microcystis toxins.

Alberta Tar Sands pollution evidence is devastating

Alberta Tar Sands pollution evidence is devastating

The disgraceful lack of control and study of the Alberta tar sands exploitation is leading to people's health problems. As the US considers its imports from Canada, it would be wise to consider just how neglectful the Canadians have been to their residents, air quality, water purity and forests.

Old King Coal has a Texan hole?

Old King Coal has a Texan hole?

We have ideas and giant international conferences coming up, on how to combat global warming and specifically what we can do with greenhouse gases. It could be, though, that some of the jokers in the pack are simply sequestering while Rome burns. After all, their employment depends on maintaining the coal, oil, gas and even fracking industries. Maybe replacing these industries with renewable energy technologies would use different engineers and spoil the party for many profitable companies?

Mediterranean demise

Mediterranean demise

Posted Fri, 13 Jun 2014 09:40:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

After such a long time, it's amazing that the Mediterranean hasn't been swamped by industrial revolutions or the effects of so many wars. Now the ancient writing on the wall is coming true as recent pollution from fossil fuels acidify and warm the troubled waters. What can we all do about our whole earth climate, after the Med, it’s the Atlantic and then the Pacific. How long can nature hold out against the onslaught of ignorant emissions that we provide?

Carbon dioxide's rise and rise

Mauna Loa gives us the most useful data from relatively unpolluted air at 11,000 feet. However we regard greenhouse gases, it’s far too late to ignore the obvious warming effect. We need action to stop using fossil fuels-completely.
