The country has been inching back to nuclear energy, turning on its first reactor in mid-August after a two-year blackout, with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and many in industry looking to cut fuel bills despite widespread public opposition to atomic power.
The study focused on the heavily drilled Marcellus Shale, a vast swath of marine sedimentary rock found in eastern North America, and which is known to have about 20 times higher levels of radioactivity from high uranium content compared to most other shales.
Up to 90 percent of seabirds are likely to have plastic in their guts, and the risk of ingestion is growing—a result of ever-increasing industrial pollution in the world's oceans, according to a new study published Monday. Seabirds are particularly vulnerable to plastic ingestion due to their habits of eating floating particles that they mistake for fish eggs.
A new report from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) "downplays" the continuing environmental and health effects of the Fukushima nuclear meltdown while supporting the Japanese government's agenda to normalize the ongoing disaster, Greenpeace Japan charged on Tuesday.
US in the worst wildfire season in its history, as almost 7.5 million acres across the country have burned up since spring. July officially became the hottest month ever recorded on the planet, setting 2015 on course to easily become the hottest year ever recorded. Drought in California has caused an "emergency situation" for trees in that state, as lack of water is causing unprecedented die-offs,also wiping out several of the native fish populations.
Researchers from the National University of Río Cuarto, Cordoba (UNRC) compared children who lived close to a GM-soy growing area in Argentina to children who lived in another city in Cordoba that was not adjacent to GM soy fields. Genetic damage in the group of exposed children was 44% higher than in the unexposed children.
Researchers primarily from the National Institute of Radiological Sciences said Aug. 28 that many fir trees near the plant, as well as other areas, had undergone “morphological defects.”Their studies showed that the changes occurred more frequently in areas with higher air rates of radiation.
Agricultural Sciences, researchers have found that when soy is genetically engineered, it disrupts the plant’s natural ability to control stress and even sparks the production of carcinogenic formaldehyde.
Latvia and Greece have opted out of GMOs, as are Germany and Scotland, as part of the new allowances indicated in legislation that recently passed for EU countries.
World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer has recently determined Roundup’s glyphosate is ‘number one’ among carcinogens, use of glyphosate in herbicides increased by 250 times in the United States the last 40 years.
The Department of Agriculture has been violating the Freedom of Information Act for over thirteen years, according to the Center for Food Safety (CFS), who is now suing the Agency for withholding information on the (lack of) safety of GMO crops.
U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has rejected the recommendation of the high-level task force it convened after the March 2011 Fukushima disaster to require nuclear plant owners to develop and maintain plans for coping with a core-melt accident.
Roundup is not the only chemical approved for use just prior to harvest. Some fruits have been tested to find 13-15 different pesticides remain after harvesting. Other approved pre-harvest chemical desiccants include Paraquat.
AN EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT
Massive animal "die offs" in the Pacific. Disaster in Japan poses such a grave threat that, over time, the loss of the food chain--and in fact, the very plankton that generates the bulk of the breathable oxygen.
New research underway indicates that at least three feet of global sea level rise is near certain, NASA scientists warned Wednesday. But we don't know whether it will happen within a century or somewhat longer."
