  • Why many experts missed this: Cheap oil can hurt US economy

    WASHINGTON (AP) - If there was one thing most economists agreed on at the start of the year, it was this: Plunging oil prices would boost the U.S. economy. It hasn't worked out that way. The economy is thought to have shrunk in the January-March quarter and may barely grow for the first half of 2015 - thanks in part to sharp cuts in energy drilling. And despite their savings at the gas pump, ...

  • Flint Must Make Us Ask: Is Our Water Ready for an Emergency?

  • A fresh approach to water practices

    Science is meeting the challenge of finding ways to reduce Australia's wasteful water practices and improve the way we use and manage this finite resource. In the regional NSW town of Goulburn, just down the road from Australia’s national capital, water supplies earlier this year fell to less than 10 per cent of capacity. In most of Australia’s major cities demand is close to or equalling supply ...

  • Can low oil prices be good for the environment?

    Deepwater drilling rigs are sitting idle. Fracking plans are being scaled back. Enormous new projects to squeeze oil out of the tar sands of Canada are being shelved. Maybe low oil prices aren't so bad for the environment after all. The global price of oil has plummeted 31 percent in just five months, a steep and surprising drop after a four-year period of prices near or above $100 a barrel. ...
