Campaigners say the controversial practice of "fracking" for gas must never be allowed to come to Wales after it was found to be the likely cause of earth tremors on the UK coast.
Fracking technique proposed for South Wales was 'probable' cause of Blackpool earthquake, report finds
Worry for homeowners who face the threat of fracking | Money | The Observer
Fracking has already caused small earthquakes in the north-west, but homeowners in the vicinity of shale gas extraction could face an even worse aftershock: falling house prices.
UK | Fish dumping 'will ruin industry'
The UK fishing industry is warning it faces ruin because of EU quotas which result in thousands of tonnes of dead fish being dumped back into the sea.
The number of TVs in the UK is estimated to reach 74 million by 2020, meaning that there will be more televisions than people to watch them – or maybe we’ll be watching more than one at once. But Britain is a nation on stand-by. We waste the equivalent of around two power stations’ worth of electricity each year simply by leaving TV sets and other gadgets on standby mode.

When Does a Nuclear Disaster End? Never.
Tony Cartalucci, Contributing WriterActivist Post Those who think Japan's Fukushima disaster is today's headlines and tomorrow's history need to take a good look at the Chernobyl disaster, which to this day is a continuing threat to the people of Ukraine. It will be hundreds of years before the area around the destroyed reactor is inhabitable again and there are disputes over whether or not Chernobyl's nuclear fuel still poses a threat of causing another explosion. There is also a teetering reactor core cover and the deteriorating sarcophagus itself that may collapse and send plumes of radioactive dust in all directions. The deteriorating "sarcophagus" containment building at Chernobyl.

Logging Hexapod "Robot"
3 February 2011Last updated at 10:44 ET By Jon Kelly BBC News Magazine Plans to transfer ownership of many public forests in England have provoked a huge row. But why are we so protective of our woodlands? It's about the rustling of the leaves and the crunch of twigs underfoot. It's the sensation of the rough bark on your hands and the light dappling into a clearing.

Glacier Thermal Blanket
Photos via MeteoLive In hopes of slowing the rate at which ice is melting in the mountains of northern Italy, officials have begun covering one their most threatened glaciers with insulating fabric, creating what is essentially a giant security blanket to help keep the ice from melting in the summer heat. It may sound a bit unusual, but tests have shown that the thermal blanket may be just the thing to save the region's glaciers from disappearing completely, for the time being, at least.Armed with nearly 970 thousand square feet of 4 millimeter thick thermal material, workers scramble to cover the highly threatened Presena glacier to protect it from the sun's ultraviolet rays. With any luck, the insulating material reduce the amount of ice that melts from the summer heat until it's removed at the end of the season. This isn't the first time Italy has used this material to help preserve its glaciers.

Ecology Drives the Worldwide Distribution of Human Diseases
Madagascar has suffered environmental degradation over a significant part of its land mass. Forests that once blanketed the eastern third of the island have now been degraded, fragmented, and converted to scrub land. Spiny forests in the south are rapidly giving way to "cactus scrub" as indigenous vegetation is cut and burned for subsistence charcoal production.
