EPA links oil and gas drilling to Texas quakes

Texasa quakes linked to frackingFederal regulators have tied a string of earthquakes in north Texas to oil and gas drilling operations in the state.

An Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) report filed with the Texas Railroad Commission this month concluded that the frequency of earthquakes in the state correlates to the number and location of injection or disposal wells for hydraulic fracturing wastewater there.

Thousands of strange blue lakes are appearing in Antarctica, and it’s very bad news

Blue lakes in antarcticaScientists have confirmed that thousands of pristine blue lakes have appeared on the ice sheets of East Antarctica, and it’s got them very worried.

The problem? They’ve seen this kind of thing happen before. Greenland’s ice sheet has been disintegrating rapidly, losing a whopping 1 trillion tonnes of ice between 2011 and 2014, and research suggests it’s because of these lakes.

Fracking Update: 3 tremors in 24 hours near Oklahoma shale country

Oklahoma tremorsThree minor seismic events were recorded near the shale reserve areas in Oklahoma in the past 24 hours, data for the U.S. Geological Survey show.

USGS data show the strongest of the three seismic events was a magnitude-2.9 tremor recorded shortly after midnight in southern Kansas, a few miles from the state border with Oklahoma. A magnitude-2.5 event was recorded in Fairview, Okla., early Sunday afternoon.

Ex-regulators back Obama in fracking rule court appeal

Ex-regulators back fracking rulesA bipartisan quartet of former high-level Interior Department officials is supporting the Obama administration in its federal court fight defending a regulation on hydraulic fracking.

The officials — who served under presidents Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama — said a Wyoming judge was wrong in June when he struck down Interior’s fracking regulation and ruled that the department's Bureau of Land Management (BLM) does not have authority to regulate the process at all.

Alaskan town votes to relocate as climate change submerges island

Alaskan town to relocateThe Alaskan village of Shishmaref narrowly voted to abandon their island and relocate to the mainland due to the effects of climate change, a town official said.

The 89-to-78 vote Wednesday makes Shishmaref, north of the Bering Strait, one of the first towns in the United States to move due to climate change. Melting sea ice is raising ocean levels and will submerge the island in a few decades.

July 2016 Was The Hottest Month Ever Recorded

July 2016 hottest month on recordIf  July felt horrendously hot, that’s because it was.

NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration ― two leading global authorities on climate ― both say July 2016 was not only the hottest July on record, but the most sizzling month in the history of record-keeping.

NOAA on Wednesday said July’s global average temperature was 62.01 degrees, 1.57 degrees above the 20th-century average. NASA, which uses a slightly different methodology, said Monday the average global temperature in July was 1.51 degrees above average. Both agencies pegged July as the hottest month since monitoring began in 1880.

Taliban overruns district in Afghanistan's Baghlan

Taliban overruns Afghan districtTaliban fighters have captured a key district in Afghanistan's northern province of Baghlan after days of fighting, Afghan officials say.

The fighters launched a coordinated attack on Dahana-e-Ghori on Friday that led to heavy fighting in the area until the Taliban took control of the district on Monday.

Amir Gul Hussainkhil, deputy police chief of Baghlan, said Dahana-e-Ghori district was under siege for days and the Taliban managed to seize it because dozens of Afghan forces made "a tactical retreat".

How state regulations can prevent man-made earthquakes

man made earthquakesOklahomans aren't just imagining it. The state has experienced 100 fewer earthquakes thus far this year than it had by August, 2015.

Geologists tentatively attribute this decrease in tremors to increased regulations on the fracking and oil extraction industries, whose wastewater disposal practices have wreaked seismic havoc in Oklahoma and other states. Still, experts caution, it's too early to tell if the quake swarms have been permanently quelled.

Climate Change Is Turning The Water Around Us Into A Threat

climate change affects waterwaysWe grasp the connection now between our changing climate and the quantity of water around us. Scientists say that climate change means both more frequent and severe droughts and a heightened risk of flooding.

What about the quality of our water? Crises as disparate as Florida’s “guacamole-thick” algal blooms and the record number of cases of Legionnaires’ disease are linked to the effects of climate change on water safety ― or so a paper published last month in the journal Nature argues.
