Unhappy home pollution is rife.

Unhappy home pollution is rife.

How clean is your home? Rephrase that now and ask yourself how polluted it is, compared to the fresh air, if your neighbourhood has any. You may be hygienic too, which is another kettle of fish (smelly that is). Whatever your situation, we all become complacent. It is not only the drains, polluted with too much detergent. Your own life, that of children and that of older and sick people is endangered by what you do. Awareness is a very simple science, pure and logical, but we must keep up. New products often turn out to be unexpectedly dangerous, even to the manufacturer. The testing now is rigorous, but simpler science is best.

Lima Call for Climate Change !

Climate change and carbon dioxide emissions are the simple link. The science tells us about all the other greenhouse gases and the links to rainfall in Europe, Asia and South America, drought in Australia, North America and Africa plus the rise in sea levels. That should make the problem seem more urgent, but has it had the required effect on those chosen to perform the actions we all need?

 Relief for American groundwater worries (or is it?)

Relief for American groundwater worries (or is it?)

Water, water everywhere, as far as groundwater is concerned. But this precious resource, as California has discovered, can so easily be contaminated for not only your people, but also any hope for industry. Good news from the Northern US is that their groundwater seems intact at the moment, unlike some states where fracking has interfered with deep systems. While some of the biggest states cry over spilt water, or rather drought, perhaps we can all learn from the mistakes of the recent past-or maybe not.

Little is known of the most highly-developed bacterial action against some heavy metals. Against organic toxins in oil they have been tried for decades, but extra safety precautions will be essential before crops can be used for human consumption. We have had enough of Minamata disease.

Quagga mussels invade your waterways!

The UK is about to receive a visit from the infamous quagga mussel. It’s a rock star you won’t like, living in hard substrates and a softie too! Many species such as freshwater fish could be affected, as well as poisoned, while the blockages caused by the high population levels often bring power station or other water inlets to a full stop.
