Why a Southern California Refinery Explosion Could Kill Thousands
One morning in February 2015, I felt a rumble. Was it an earthquake? No. It was an explosion at the ExxonMobil oil refinery a few miles away. The refinery is located in the middle of a residential area of Torrance, Calif.
It's More than Just Climate Change
A new scientific paper by a University of Maryland-led international team of distinguished scientists, including five members of the National Academies, argues that there are critical two-way feedbacks missing from current climate models that are used to inform environmental, climate, and economic policies. The most important inadequately-modeled variables are inequality, consumption, and population.
Fish affected by Deepwater Horizon spill give clues to air pollution heart disease
A study by Manchester and Stanford scientists into the effects on fish of a 2010 oil disaster could shed new light on how air pollution affects humans’ hearts.The 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster resulted in a major oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, an area of water which is heavily populated with fish species. In a paper published in Nature Scientific Reports, the team analysed the effects of individual components of crude oil on the hearts of fish.

Coast Report
If we gave our coastlines an environmental report card, what grade should they get? Surprise! There IS a report, and it gives our coasts about a grade "C." It's called the National Coastal Condition Report, and it's the third in a series started by the Environmental Protection Agency in 2001. It's the first truly national assessment of all our coastlines' ecological health, including the Great Lakes, Alaska and Hawaii. Surprisingly, some areas scored better than before. The Northeast and the West have improved since the last report; while the Southeast and the Gulf of Mexico rank lower. Overall, our coastlines earned a down-the-middle "Fair," when it comes to water quality, sediment quality, habitat, contaminants in fish tissue and conditions for bottom-dwelling critters. But while "Fair" might sound as stinging as a bad grade in math class, it actually holds promise. Comparisons with the 2005 report card show slight improvements due, possibly, to positive effects from environmental laws passed in the 1970s. If you think our coasts could do better, you're right and you can help by cleaning litter off a beach and eating sustainably farmed seafood. Small changes, maybe. But they make the grade: Coast to coast. Script by Gail Davis
Health Factors Threaten Gorillas - But Why?
What's a significant threat to the survival of captive gorillas? Surprisingly it's heart disease. It's ironic. In the wild, gorillas inch closer to extinction daily from habitat loss and poaching. Because of this troubling outlook for wild gorillas, zookeepers especially want to maintain captive gorillas in good health. Yet male gorillas in zoos and preserves have significant rates of chronic heart disease. So high that veterinarian Pam Dennis of the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo describes heart disease as "a major threat to gorilla health." Are genetics a factor? Or diet, or exercise, or a virus? To find answers, researchers have formed the Gorilla Health Project, a collaboration of zoos across North America. They are pooling information to form a database about gorilla heart disease and other conditions affecting captive gorillas. At the Cleveland zoo, recent heart exams of two males in their twenties revealed signs of minor heart disease in one and advanced heart disease in the other. Just like humans, they're now taking beta blockers and/or ACE inhibitors, to hopefully stem their disease progression. And now thanks to the database, how they fare may help other gorillas.

Coal Gasification
It's no news flash that, over the years, one of the dirtiest sources of energy has been coal; in fact, it's among the top contributors to carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The challenge, according to the U.S. government's Energy Information Administration, is that coal accounts for about fifty percent of all the energy produced in the U.S. Luckily, new technologies already in use are making coal a cleaner-burning fuel. Coal gasification is based on a technology that's been around since the 1850s. Rather than burning coal directly, it's exposed to steam and oxygen under high temperatures and pressures. The chemical reaction produces gases. So, how "green" is it? Well, the byproduct from coal gasification, hydrogen, is considered one of the cleanest burning fuels on earth. Yet, there is still the environmental impact of mining coal and transporting it. And, the process itself has a few glitches, like it still has carbon as part of the mix. While scientists continue looking for ways to capture and get rid of carbon for good, like burying it underground, reducing your own energy needs will help. After all, one bright idea deserves another! Script by Bob Rhein

Vulnerabilities to Global Warming

potatoes

The IPCC working group responsible for evaluating society's vulnerability to climate change has released its section of the Fifth Assessment Report. The first article in this series examines the working group's findings about food security. The second one reviews what the IPCC identified as urban vulnerabilities to climate change. Finally, a look at the 9 cities most at risk from flooding associated with climate change (and the most resilient, too). (Photo: DTL/morgueFile)

Landscapes, Slow Turtles, and Roads

Boreal forest road

I suggested earlier than one of the top environmental issues is the way in which we use land. One resulting pattern is widespread landscape fragmentation. I explain what fragmentation is in a new article here. Another very visible element of modern landscapes is our sprawling road network. In two new articles you can read about road ecology, and about roadkill. (Photo: A road cuts through boreal forest. Credit: dyet/morgueFile.com)
