Europe's microwave ovens emit nearly as much CO2 as 7m cars
19 January 2018 - Popping frozen peas into the microwave for a couple of minutes may seem utterly harmless, but Europe's stock of these quick-cook ovens emit as much carbon as nearly 7m cars, a new study has found. And the problem is growing: with costs falling and kitchen appliances becoming 'status' items, owners are throwing away microwaves after an average of eight years, pushing rising sales. (more)

US review shows pesticides harm threatened salmon, whales
12 January 2018 - Federal scientists have determined that a family of widely used pesticides poses a threat to dozens of endangered and threatened species, including Pacific salmon, Atlantic sturgeon, and Puget Sound orcas. The National Marine Fisheries Service issued its new biological opinion on three organophosphate pesticides -- chlorpyrifos, diazinon, and malathion -- after a yearslong court fight by environmental groups. At the urging of pesticide manufacturers, the Trump administration had sought a two-year delay of a court-ordered deadline to issue the findings by the end of 2017, but it was unsuccessful. ... the use of chlorpyrifos on fruits and vegetables after peer-reviewed academic studies found that even tiny levels of exposure could hinder the development of children's brains.

Increased stress at work linked to higher risk of diabetes
11 January 2018 - Workers who experience an increase in stress on the job over time may be more likely to develop diabetes than their coworkers who don't, a recent study suggests. Researchers examined data on 3,730 petroleum industry workers in China. At the start of the study, none of the workers had diabetes. ... Worldwide, nearly one in 10 adults had diabetes in 2014, and the disease will be the seventh leading cause of death by 2030, according to the World Health Organization. (more)

Study: Warming puts millions more at risk from river floods
11 January 2018 - Global warming will increase the risk of river flooding over the coming decades, endangering millions more people around the world, according to a study published Thursday (11 January). Using computer simulations, researchers in Germany examined the impact of changing rainfall patterns by region ... River floods are already one of the most widespread and damaging forms of natural disasters worldwide. (more)

US: Study blames marijuana farms for poisoning of threatened owls
11 January 2018 - Rat poison is contaminating threatened northern spotted owls in California forests, and marijuana farms appear to be to blame, according to a study published Thursday (11 January). The study published in the journal Avian Conservation and Ecology focused on owls in Northern California's Humboldt, Mendocino, and Del Norte counties, part of the so-called Emerald Triangle, where remote farms -- many in old-growth forests -- produce much of the marijuana grown for the U.S. black market.

Corals die, farmers suffer through Australia's third-hottest year
10 January 2018 - Australia had its third-hottest year on record in 2017, the country's weather bureau said on Wednesday (10 January), as global warming changed the continent's climate and farmers warned unpredictable seasons are hurting the $47 billion agricultural sector. Unusually, the high heat last year came despite the absence of an El Nino weather system in the Pacific, which tends to warm Australia, the Bureau of Meteorology said in its annual climate statement.

The bottom of the ocean has started sinking under the weight of melting glaciers
8 January 2018 - Decades of measurements and predictions of sea level rise could have underestimated the scale of the problem, experts warn, due to scientists not accounting for the weighty, warping effects of our ever burgeoning oceans. Existing assessments of sea level rise haven't factored in that as the total ocean mass increases due to melting glaciers and ice sheets, the weight of all that extra water pushes down on the sinking ocean floor, deforming the seabed -- and disguising just how much the oceans are truly swelling. The findings are reported in Geophysical Research Letters. (more)

The ocean floor is slowly sinking under the weight of melting glaciers
8 January 2018 - Melting glaciers are causing sea levels to rise, but scientists have identified a factor that is usually not taken into consideration when calculating it. The enormous mass that gets added to the ocean is causing the sea floor to warp, sink, and deform. This can disguise the actual rise of sea levels in many parts of the planet and actually cover up the actual extent to which the seas are rising. (more)
