Comments Off on Toxic Fracking Waste Water Injected into Clean Water Aquifers in Drought-stricken California

What’s California’s government doing to help combat the state’s recent record-setting water shortages? According to NBC Bay Area , it’s letting oil and gas companies pump waste water from oil fracking into underground aquifers that could have been used for clean drinking water or irrigation. Such activity is supposed to be off-limits (and the aquifers should be protected by the EPA), but according to the California Department of Conservation it may have been the result of an error in the process.

Comments Off on Beloved Bananas May Become Extinct as Fungus Spreads Around the World

Bad news for banana lovers: the tasty fruit is on its way to becoming a thing of the past. A nasty fungus that has been decimating bananas in Asia and Australia has jumped to Jordan and Mozambique. Scientists fear that it is just a matter of time until it finds its way to Latin America, where 80% of bananas are grown. The report, released in Nature Magazine , says that “[e]xpansion of the disease worldwide could be disastrous,” meaning that we may be kissing the banana we know and love goodbye.
