Insecticide causes changes in honeybee genes

Insecticide causes changes in honeybee genes
Nottingham, UK (SPX) Jul 03, 2013 - New research by academics at The University of Nottingham has shown that exposure to a neonicotinoid insecticide causes changes to the genes of the honeybee. The study, published in the scientific journal PLOS ONE, supports the recent decision taken by the European Commission to temporarily ban three neonicotinoids amid concerns that they could be linked to bee deaths. There is growi ... morehttp://www.seeddaily.com/reports/Insecticide_causes_changes_in_honeybee_genes_999.html

Greenhouse gas likely altering ocean foodchain

Greenhouse gas likely altering ocean foodchain
Los Angeles CA (SPX) Jul 03, 2013 - Climate change may be weeding out the bacteria that form the base of the ocean's food chain, selecting certain strains for survival, according to a new study. In climate change, as in everything, there are winners and losers. As atmospheric carbon dioxide levels and temperature rise globally, scientists increasingly want to know which organisms will thrive and which will perish in the envi ... morehttp://www.terradaily.com/reports/Greenhouse_gas_likely_altering_ocean_foodchain_999.html

Chemists work to desalt the ocean for drinking water, one nanoliter at a time
Austin TX (SPX) Jul 02, 2013 - By creating a small electrical field that removes salts from seawater, chemists at The University of Texas at Austin and the University of Marburg in Germany have introduced a new method for the desalination of seawater that consumes less energy and is dramatically simpler than conventional techniques. The new method requires so little energy that it can run on a store-bought battery.

Study To Show What Happens To Jobs, Electricity Bills Under Obama Climate Action Plan Cleaning Up Power Plants

Study To Show What Happens To Jobs, Electricity Bills Under Obama Climate Action Plan Cleaning Up Power Plants

DATA: FL, IL, MI, MT, NH, NC, OH, OR, PA, VA, AND NATION WOULD BENEFIT FROM FIRST-EVER LIMITS ON POWER PLANT CARBON POLLUTION
WASHINGTON, D.C. ///NEWS ADVISORY/// President Obama's climate action plan will help protect future generations from climate change. Critics of climate action claim that first-ever limits on carbon pollution from power plants will cost jobs and raise the nation's electric bills. How wrong are they?
The Natural Resources Defense Council, the Small Business Majority and the Blue Green Alliance will answer this question at 1:30 p.m. EDT Tuesday (July 2, 2013) by presenting the most thorough analysis to date about the impact of a key element of Obama's plan on jobs, electricity bills and the economy. Along with presenting the national impact, the new analysis includes data for Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Climate change threatens forest survival on drier, low-elevation sites
Corvallis OR (SPX) Jul 01, 2013 - Predicted increases in temperature and drought in the coming century may make it more difficult for conifers such as ponderosa pine to regenerate after major forest fires on dry, low-elevation sites, in some cases leading to conversion of forests to grass or shrub lands, a report suggests. Researchers from Oregon State University concluded that moisture stress is a key limitation for conif ... morehttp://www.terradaily.com/reports/Climate_change_threatens_forest_survival_on_drier_low_elevation_sites_999.html

El Nino unusually active in the late 20th century: Is it because of global warming?
Reliable prediction of El Nino response to global warming is difficult, as El Nino varies naturally over decades and centuries. Instrumental records are too short to determine whether recent changes are natural or attributable to increased greenhouse gases. An international team of scientists now show that recent El Nino activity is the highest for the past 700 years, possibly a response to global
