The smog-choked populace of China is still suffering through record levels of pollution, and new reports indicate that the haze is spreading.
The "airpocalypse" currently gripping Beijing has gotten so bad that a local entrepreneur has come up with a surprising solution in a can.
Scientists have recently discovered adding graphene oxide to water contaminated by radioactive material will make environmental clean up easier.
The State of New York thinks beets might be the answer to their icy roads, planning to pour some 50,000 gallons of the juice on state roads to help stop dangerous road conditions from forming.
While we all enjoy the smartphones and tablets manufactured in China, nothing has put the world on notice regarding air quality more than the horrendous pollution that plagues that country's major cities. As the U.S. comes to grips with its own pollution, a local research group has created a smartphone sensor system designed to make monitoring our air quality a little more convenient.
Overfishing of the planet's oceans is one of those environmental issues that flies under the radar of most, but remains a huge problem for nations that rely on sea life for their food supply. In an attempt to address a part of this problem, a British design student created a netting solution that could save millions of fish species in danger of disappearing forever.
It's a simple but powerful concept. If everyone devoted just some of the time and energy they devote to social media to making changes in our behavior, we could change the planet.
It sounds a little creepy, evoking images of unwitting fish following a robotic swimmer just like Picard was drawn into the Borg Collective. But the experiment has a warm and fuzzy heart — to understand why and how fish operate in schools to potentially guide them away from environmental disasters or hazards in the wild.
Pollution glue may sound like a joke, but it is real and it's being deployed in London in a bid to clean up one of Europe's dirtiest cities. The glue is really a dust suppressant solution sprayed on some of the city's busiest streets to keep airborne particulates to a minimum.
As cities across the globe stretch their limits to meet the needs of seven billion people, often wildlife habitats are displaced along the way. Fortunately, there are those who are thinking about innovative ways to create new environments to preserve wildlife. One such idea is the "Sea Tree," a giant self-sustaining eco-structure designed to rise out water, serving as a haven for flora and fauna only.
