The study, published today in Biogeosciences, found that the seafloor is eroding far faster than expected in five large coral reef tracts in Florida, the Caribbean and Hawaii. Researchers already knew many reefs have fewer corals, but today's study is the first to show the widespread effects of that degradation on water depths.
Emails unsealed in a California lawsuit last week reveal that agribusiness giant Monsanto engaged in activities aimed at undermining efforts to evaluate a potential link between glyphosate—the active ingredient of the company's popular herbicide Roundup—and cancer.

The list includes a rule to prohibit coal companies from polluting streams, a cap on power plant carbon emissions and lifting a moratorium on new federal coal leases. All this is being done to free up the U.S. energy sector from burdensome regulations that hamper job growth.
"It was too easy, the muckraker Lincoln Steffens began to argue, to believe that bad politicians were just immoral people. Instead he asked his massive readership to look at the structure rather than the individual, to think about the warped systems that enabled political corruption, and to consider the ways angry voters inadvertently encouraged behavior they condemned."
The business case for sustainability continues to be made, but the integration of sustainability strategy into finance and risk management strategies is still complicated. But, by taking the time to coordinate under one comprehensive strategic umbrella, companies that can capture sustainability, finance, and risk management strategies effectively in the corporate strategic plan will see growth – despite shifting customer demands, changing capital marketplaces, and increasing regulations.
