Toxic herbicide found in many Texans' drinking water

Toxic herbicide found in many Texans' drinking water | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it
Nearly 500 water utilities across the state tested positive for atrazine — a weed killer — which can lead to harmful health effects, according to a new report. The Environmental Working Group also found that utilities are testing water during times when the herbicide isn’t being used as much — and that they may be lowballing the results. More than 10 million Texans have consumed drinking water with some level of atrazine – a toxic …

One of several reason I see far fewer birds in the sky as I travel across three states full of trees and lakes. That would be Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky where I would think there should be many winged creatures in the sky on a 6 hour trip. There usually isn’t many to be counted in the air.

Gold mining is devastating the rainforests of Peru | James Holloway | NewAtlas.com

More than 170,000 acres of primary rainforest in the Peruvian Amazon have been destroyed in the past 5 years due to small-scale gold mining. This is 30 percent more than has been previously reported, according to new research carried out by scientists at Wake Forest University's Center for Amazonian Scientific Innovation (CINCIA).

The team, based in the Madre de Dios region of Peru, initially came up with a new method to identify those areas specifically affected by small-scale mining. They then combined existing CLASlite forest monitoring technology and Global Forest Change data sets on forest loss to produce a deforestation detection tool that is 20-25 percent more accurate than methods previously used.

"The scale of the deforestation is really shocking," says Luis Fernandez, executive director of CINCIA and research associate professor in the department of biology.
