“The rules curbing emissions of mercury and other hazardous air pollutants began to take effect in April. But the court said by a 5-4 vote Monday that the EPA failed to take their cost into account when the agency first decided to regulate the toxic emissions from coal- and oil-fired plants.” 
The Supreme Court has issued yet another ruling that has many people up in arms. Environmental activists and health advocates alike are especially unhappy with their most recent decision con [...]
A scientific research paper in Great Britain asserted that breast cancer rates increased to 5x the normal rate for women who lived near one of three nuclear power plants that they studied. The two others nuclear power plants doubled the incidence for those women living downwind from the reactors.
For decades the American public has been assured that there is very little chance that nuclear radiation escapes from the normal operation of a nuclear power plant. Yes, there may be catastrophic mishap [...]
It seems like there are near endless ways to produce power these days, even simply pulling it from the air around you. Now, Plant-e, a Dutch company, has found a way to harness the power of plants. They believe that plants can power cell phones, street lights, and can even act as Wi-Fi hotspots. Their flagship project called Starry Sky was launched last November near Amsterdam. The project powered more than 300 LED streetlights.
How does it work? Plant-e explains on their website:

Denver, Colorado city officials have banned more than 60,000 marijuana plants meant for sale due to possible unapproved pesticide contamination.
Denver officials ordered one warehouse full of these plants (worth $60 million in product) to go under quarantine due to the suspected use of pesticides that could harm consumers were the plants to be inhaled.
Especially considering the fact that many Colorado residents purchase marijuana for medicinal purposes, the use of pesticides for growing the pl [...]

Emerging as the world’s second largest importer of GMO crops, South Korea seems to be a big believer in feeding its citizens GMOs. Oddly enough, though, the country already has a government ban on their cultivation – likely as a means to protect its land from potential GMO dangers while still ‘benefiting’ from GMO foods. But despite an in-house ban and only accepting imports, GMO mystery plants have been taking root all over the country – providing hard evidence t [...]

Scientists shocked the world today by announcing that they believe there could be at least two large, Earth-sized planets that exist beyond the orbit of Pluto. These objects are called ETNOs, or Extreme Trans-Neptunian Objects.
There have been many dwarf planets found in the outer reaches of our solar systems, but nothing like what they believe these planets might be.
“This excess of objects with unexpected orbital parameters makes us believe that some invisible forces are altering the distrib [...]

Sayer JiActivist Post New evidence reveals that despite a ban on cultivation of GM rapeseed in Europe, Monsanto and Bayer's plants are now freely growing there. A new study published in PLoS titled, "Unexpected Diversity of Feral Genetically Modified Oilseed Rape (Brassica napus L.)

Recently, several dozen rock art sites have been documented in Southern New Mexico, and the discovery of this rock art comes with a botanical discovery as well:
These rock art sites are also home to hallucinogenic plants.
At one site, wild tobacco, which is a highly hallucinogenic plant, was found growing beneath a panel of rock art that depicted triangles painted in red and black. Experts think that these plants are actually remains from the times when shamans would smoke the leaves and paint t [...]
