Traces of pain-relieving substances, diabetes drugs and allergy medicines are widespread in small streams across the Southeast, especially in urban zones like Raleigh, North Carolina, the U.S. Geological Survey found in a new study. The USGS in 2014 sampled 59 small streams in portions of Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia for 108 different pharmaceutical compounds and detected one or more pharmaceuticals in all 59 streams. The average number of pharmaceuticals detected in the streams was six.
An environmental activist says that for six months Lemare Lake Logging Ltd. has failed to meet the legal requirement to show him the company's plans for logging on publicly owned land in the East Creek valley on northern Vancouver Island.
British Columbia's Forest and Range Practices Act says that companies must make their site plans "publicly available on request at any reasonable time" at their offices.
"I've been asking for that for six months," said Mark Worthing, a biodiversity and forestry campaigner with the Sierra Club of B.C. "They're barring access to us, obviously because they don't like us."
A strain of bacteria resistant to all known medications has been found in the US for the first time. Experts have long warned that overuse of antibiotics is creating drug-resistant bugs increasingly difficult to control.
Dozens of the Earth’s most cherished World Heritage sites are under dire threat from climate change — and some may be damaged beyond saving, warns a report UNESCO released Thursday.
The agency, alongside the Union of Concerned Scientists and the United Nations Environment Program, analyzed 31 natural and cultural World Heritage sites in 29 countries on six continent. The areas range from America’s celebrated Yellowstone National Park and Venice’s iconic Lagoon to the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador and the Ilulissat Icefjord in Denmark, all of which could be damaged by an onslaught of climate-related effects.

An exclusive photo essay tells the story of Ontong Java, a string of remote Pacific islands at the mercy of climate change. Without support from governments, islanders are struggling to keep their heads above water.
Protecting Earth's Oceans By Liza Gross When New England fishers complained of working harder and harder to catch fewer and fewer fish, Spencer Baird assembled a scientific team to investigate. Though a fishery failure would once have seemed inconceivable, Baird wrote in his report, “an alarming decrease of the shore-fisheries has been thoroughly established by…
TUCSON, Ariz.— The Center for Biological Diversity and the Animal Welfare Institute today filed a notice of intent to sue the U.S. Department of Agriculture to ensure that endangered ocelots aren’t inadvertently killed as part of its long-running program to kill coyotes, bears, bobcats and other wildlife in Arizona and Texas. The USDA’s Wildlife Services program kills tens of thousands of animals in the two states every year using traps, snares and poisons.
“Fewer than 100 of these beautiful wild cats likely remain, yet the government is putting them at even greater risk by riddling their habitat with cruel snares and traps,” said Collette Adkins, a Center attorney and biologist. “Ocelots were dragged to the brink of extinction decades ago partly because of the government’s persecution of predators. Now the few that remain face the same fate, as our government hunts down coyotes and bobcats as part of this ongoing war on predators. It has to stop before we lose them forever.
Some of Thailand’s most prized dive sites have been closed indefinitely after the Department of National Parks’ survey found coral bleaching on 80 percent of some of the reefs.
This is a bold move for a country where tourism accounts for 10 percent of its economy—and where officials were hoping to attract 32 million tourists this year, The Guardian reported. But then again, it sends the message Thailand officials want: Ignorant tourism is killing the reefs.
For the second time in two weeks, Shell has spilled thousands of gallons of oil, this time in California’s Central Valley.
Less than two weeks after dumping nearly 90,000 gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, Shell Oil is at it again. The company’s San Pablo Bay Pipeline, which transports crude oil from California’s Central Valley to the San Francisco Bay Area, leaked an estimated 21,000 gallons into the soil near in San Joaquin County this week.
An undercover investigation at a farm contracted with meat giant Tyson Foods shows horrific treatment of chickens, but what’s most disturbing is that the cruelty is not new or even unusual, animal advocates say.
Sick and deformed chickens languish in filthy, intensely crowded conditions and suffer kicking and being thrown by workers in a video released Wednesday by the nonprofit Mercy for Animals.
The group says most of the footage comes from a contract farm in Lewisburg, Tennessee, where an MFA investigator worked undercover between March 26 and May 10. But the video also includes clips from other Mercy for Animals investigations over the past year. (A “contract farm” means that Tyson provides the farmer with chickens, feed, medication and technical advice, while the farmer provides labor and housing for the birds.)
