The Environmental Protection Agency is urging schools across the nation to replace their aging light fixtures due to possible chemical leaks.
The rest of the developed world has high-speed rail. We don't. That's finally about to change.
In what seems a deus ex machina or perhaps deus ex gaia moment, scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory report that the miles-long deep sea oil plume which resulted from the BP oil spill has essentially vanished, apparently eaten by microbes previously unknown to science.
NRDC’s Water Program is increasingly focused on solutions to our leading water pollution problems, one of which is urban stormwater.
The dirty runoff that hits our waterways after storms may not be as obvious as the pollution that comes out of factories or oil refineries, but it has an enormous impact on our nation’s beaches, nonetheless.
Two days ago, four teams hailing from Australia, Switzerland, South Korea and Germany set out from Geneva to race around the globe in a mere eighty days. Unlike previous world races The Zero Race teams must undertake the thirty-thousand kilometer trip using electric, emission-free vehicles.
A colleague sent over this article detailing a mind-blowing nexus of my energy and wildlife work - the discovery of a fairly common salamander species that is literally powered by the sun, at least early on. New research finds that spotted salamander embryos and hatchlings somehow have little bits of algae inside their cells to create energy using photosynthesis. It is the first time this has been observed in any animal with vertebrae.
More importantly, its yet another example of why keeping critters on this planet is so important - we clearly still have a lot to learn from the animal kingdom. Who knows if the humble salamander harbors secrets that will help fix our energy mess...
It is the official position of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that the chemicals BP used in the Gulf of Mexico to disperse spilled oil pose no public health risks.
On August 5, an ice island four times the size of Manhattan broke off of a Greenland glacier and started floating toward the Nares Strait, the body of water that separates western Greenland from far northeastern Canada's Ellsemere Island.
Satellite imagery and aerial reconnaissance can only see what’s visible on the surface of the water – they’re not able to tell us the locations and movement of the submerged plumes of oil droplets. These plumes could well be drifting offshore of Florida and without looking to see if they’re there, we won’t know.
With the eyes of the world glued to the World Cup, there’s no mistaking that one sport can bring together people across the globe. But beyond the soccer field, this year’s World Cup is showing how a global clean energy future could unite us in an even more powerful way.
For the first time ever, people in Kenya’s Kibera, the largest slum in Africa, are watching the heroes of their favorite sport on television – solar-powered television.
