A Worm With Three Sexes Has Been Discovered

Nature seems to have endless possibilities. The media these days is speaking so much about finding life on other planets, but even here on Earth there still are many forms of life that developed in very surprising ways for us. So surprising that if we encounter an alien life form on Earth, some may even say that it’s not from another planet. Researchers at the California Institute of Technology have recently discovered eight more species of microscopic worm thriving in Mono Lake in California, and one of them is weird…

Louisiana officials say they will conduct ‘comprehensive study’ of cancer risks near Denka plant

The people living in close vicinity of the Denka Performance Elastomer plant have complained of elevated risk of cancer since years due to the plant’s pollution.

Details regarding the design as well as timeframe weren’t available immediately. The Edwards’ admin informed the New Orleans Advocate about its new plan…

Scientists predict 16m sea level rise even if the Earth stops warming right now

Dating back to three million years when the temperatures were tad degree higher than the present scenario it was noticed that the sea level was 16m more than what it is now. A new study suggested this conclusion drawn by the scientists from referring to the deposits of the coastal caves during the Pliocene era. Victor Polyak, who is a researcher from Mexico University, came up with a constraining model for the sea level rise which was completely inclined towards the fact that the current measurement of warming is entirely…

Amazon fires ‘extraordinarily concerning’, warns UN biodiversity chief

The fires taking a toll over the Amazon forests have now become a matter of “Extraordinary Concern”. For years, these forests have served as the natural support system for planet’s life. The top biodiversity bodies of the United Nations have called in for companies, countries, as well as consumers to create a fresh relationship with the existing cover of forest in Amazon. The Executive Secretary for UN Convention on Biological Diversity named Cristiana Pasca Palmer, mentioned that the devastation of the biggest rainforest in the world was actually a grim…

Extreme mangrove corals found on the Great Barrier Reef Environment 

Extreme mangrove corals found on the Great Barrier Reef

The first documented discovery of “extreme corals” in mangrove lagoons around Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is yielding important information about how corals deal with environmental stress, scientists say. Thirty four species of coral were found to be regularly exposed to extreme low pH, low oxygen and highly variable temperature conditions making two mangrove lagoons on the Woody Isles and Howick Island potential “hot-spots” of coral resilience. Although coral cover was typically low and somewhat patchy in the lagoon waters, DECRA Research Fellow Dr Emma Camp, from the University of Technology…

Surge in young Republicans worried about the environment: survey

A growing majority of U.S. Republicans, especially younger voters, are worried that human behavior is damaging the planet, according to a survey of global attitudes to the environment conducted by an Amsterdam-based polling agency. President Donald Trump, a Republican, has said he will pull the United States out of the 2015 Paris climate accord involving nearly 200 countries and has reversed environmental protections put in place by his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama. Trump skipped a meeting on climate change during last weekend’s G7 summit in France and said he would…

Trump Administration Opens Door To Dropping Florida’s Key Deer From Endangered List

The Trump administration is considering removing the Key Deer, one of Florida’s most iconic and beloved animals, from the Endangered Species List. Named for its habitat in the Florida Keys, they are tiny versions of whitetail deer, typically at the shoulder just two or three feet tall. They’re cute, popular with tourists and used to be found on more than a dozen Florida islands. Today, most of them live on a single island, Big Pine Key. Jan Svejkovsky, a wildlife biologist with Save Our Key Deer, points out a young…

US Navy ends Obama’s climate change task force as Trump rolls back environmental initiatives

The US Navy quietly shuttered a task force created under former President Barack Obama to prepare the military branch for the impact of global warming, reportedly saying the team was “no longer needed”. Its ending, which happened in March and was first reported on Tuesday by the environmental site E&E News, reflects a trend under Donald Trump in which federal agencies have shuttered operations designed to combat climate change nationwide and around the world. Before the president seemingly fired former Defence Secretary Jim Mattis, the career military official wrote in 2017 to the Senate Armed Services Committee: “Climate change is…

Amid Climate Change, Arctic Region Evolves Into Strategic, Economic Hotspot

TASIILAQ, Greenland — From a helicopter, Greenland’s brilliant white ice and dark mountains make the desolation seem to go on forever. And the few people who live here — its whole population wouldn’t fill a football stadium — are poor, with a high rate of substance abuse and suicide. One scientist called it the “end of the planet.” When U.S. President Donald Trump floated the idea of buying Greenland, it was met with derision, seen as an awkward and inappropriate approach of an erstwhile ally. But it might also be an…
