Pennsylvania watershed contaminated with radioactive material and endocrine-disrupting chemicals….

Hydraulic fracturing has enabled a domestic oil and gas boom in the U.S., but its rapid growth has raised questions about what to do with the billions of gallons of wastewater that result. Researchers now report that treating the wastewater and releasing it into surface waters has led to the contamination of a Pennsylvania watershed with radioactive material and endocrine-disrupting chemicals. The study appears in ACS’ journal Environmental Science & Technology.

In 2015, the unconventional oil and gas extraction method known as hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” accounted for more than one-half of oil production and two-thirds of gas production in America, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The method’s market share is likely to increase even further.

Although the technique has resulted in a shift away from coal, which could reduce greenhouse gas emissions, it produces large amounts of wastewater containing radioactive material, salts, metals, endocrine-disrupting chemicals and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons that could pose risks to the environment and human health.

A Pennsylvania report estimates that in 2015, 10 000 unconventional oil and gas wells in the Marcellus Shale produced 1.7 billion gallons of wastewater. The facilities that collect the water provide only limited treatment before releasing it into surface waters. Bill Burgos and colleagues at Penn State, Colorado State and Dartmouth wanted to see what impact this strategy of treating and releasing fracking wastewater might be having.

SB 54 will protect criminal illegals from deportation, warns California senator

While De Leon contends that his bill will still allow authorities to respond to ICE inquiries as they pertain to convicted violent offenders, some of his colleagues disagree. Senator Jeff Stone, a Republican from Temecula (near San Diego), recently stated on Fox & Friends that SB 54 will actually protect illegal aliens who have been convicted of human trafficking, child abuse, or assault with a deadly weapon from deportation. If solidified into law, this policy will put millions of legal Californians at risk.

Extreme flash flooding hits Istanbul after heaviest rain since 1985, Turkey

Turkey’s most populated city, Istanbul suffered extreme flash flooding on Tuesday, July 18, 2017, after rainstorm dumped 4 months worth of rain in just 12 hours. It was the most severe rainfall the city has seen in the past 32 years, but only the first of several waves of rainstorms expected. Meteorologists say the rains will last until Wednesday evening.

Light showers reached Istanbul late Monday, July 17, and turned into extremely heavy rains at 08:30 local time (05:30 UTC), Tuesday when huge black clouds covered the city, effectively ending the summer heat.

According to Doğan News Agency, the city was hit by most severe rainfall in the past 32 years, with 128 mm (5 inches) of rain before the first storm was over. This is more than four times the average for the month of July (32.5 mm / 1.3 inches), its driest month, and more than the region usually records during entire December, its wettest month.

According to a statement issued by Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, 65 mm (2.5 inches) of rain fell on the city center within 1 hour, accompanied by winds of up to 80 km/h (50 mph). In total, the city center and western districts saw 110 mm (4.3 inches) of rain before 14:00 local time when the second wave of heavy rain was expected.

  • Most lionesses would kill a baby leopard as they are direct competition for food
  • But in a world first this attentive mother has taken in this tiny spotted cub
  • As well as nursing her adopted baby, mother Nosikitok had three cubs of her own
  • Lodge manager Ainslie Wilson told MailOnline she thinks her cubs have died 
  • After giving birth mothers have high levels of oxytocin which can make them redirect their attention to young who are not related to them

Incredible images show a baby leopard feeding from a wild lioness in the Serengeti in Tanzania. 

Most lionesses would kill a baby leopard as they are direct competition in the food chain, but this attentive mother has taken in this tiny spotted cub.

Wildlife experts say this particular inter-species suckling has never been seen before.

Climate Change: Locals say they saw flames and smoke as a major bubble of methane blasted below the surface & created another sinkhole in the Russian Arctic peninsula

Reindeer herders in the area of Seyakh, a village on the eastern coast of the Yamal Peninsula in the morning of June 28th reported the incident to the local authorities. They say that they from the distance saw flaring flames and a column of smoke from the area, TASS reports. It is believed that the explosion took place place about 30-40 km from Seyakh. Russian space authorities have been requested to localise the exact site of the incident.

The Yamal Peninsula covers a more than 700 km long area between the Gulf of Ob and the Kara Sea and is among Russia’s least populated regions. It is inhabited mostly by the indigenous reindeer herding Nenets people and a gradually increasing number of oilmen. It is not the first explosion of its kind. Over the last years, several major methane blasts have occured in the gas-rich peninsula.

In 2014, a major sinkhole was discovered not far from Bovanenkovo, the area which houses one of Russia’s biggest natural gas fields. That has a diameter of up to 60 meters. There are at least ten known sinkholes in the Yamal Peninsula, as well as about 250 lakes and numerous offshore structures which indicate similar phenomena, Interfax reports. It is not rare that the sinkholes are triggered by methane explosions with fires and smoke, Vasily Bogoyavlensky, a research leader at the Russian Academy of Sciences, says to the news agency. Over the last couple of years, the regional oil and gas industry has placed censors in the area which they hope will be able to tell about new and upcoming sinkholes.

The measurement instruments are now on site in Bovenenkovo, Sabetta and Kharasavey, all of them key sites for the gas industry in the area. The methane explosions in the region could be spurred by the warmer temperatures and climate change in the Arctic. As the permafrost melts it releases gas hydrates preserved in the ground.
