.03% of ocean plastic comes from straws. 46 percent comes from fishing nets
19 July 2018 - Straws make up a trifling percentage of the world's plastic products, and campaigns to eliminate them will not only be ineffective, but could distract from far more useful efforts. ... But this well-intentioned campaign assumes that single-use plastics, such as straws and coffee stirrers, have much to do with ocean pollution. And that assumption is based on some highly dubious data. (more)

Europe's blistering heatwave is ruining this year's harvest
19 July 2018 - EU grain growers brace for smallest harvest in six years. Looking out over his parched fields south of Berlin, dairy and grains farmer Thomas Gaebert is wishing for rains to save his crops after relentless hot weather. He's one of many farmers battling for survival after a heatwave and drought swept across northern parts of the continent, damaging crops from wheat to barley. Many German growers could go bankrupt if they suffer another crop failure, and too much rain in France is set to reduce output there. All combined, it's shaping up to be the bloc's smallest grains harvest in six years. 'It looks like a desert out there,' Gaebert said of his farm in Trebbin. His colleagues, who have been farming for 40 years, say they've never seen anything like this. (more)

In town with little water, Coca-Cola is everywhere. So is diabetes.
19 July 2018 - San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico: Maria del Carmen Abadia lives in one of Mexico's rainiest regions, but she has running water only once every two days. When it does trickle from her tap, the water is so heavily chlorinated, she said, it's undrinkable. Potable water is increasingly scarce in San Cristobal de las Casas, a picturesque mountain town in the southeastern state of Chiapas where some neighborhoods have running water just a few times a week, and many households are forced to buy extra water from tanker trucks. .... Climate change, scientists say, has also played a role in the failure of artesian wells that sustained San Cristobal for generations. 'It doesn't rain like it used to,' said Jesus Carmona, a biochemist at the local Ecosur scientific research center, which is affiliated with the Mexican government. 'Almost every day, day and night, it used to rain.' (more)

China's ozone levels hit record high in June: Greenpeace
18 July 2018 - Despite China's four-year battle against air pollution, ozone has become 'an emerging health threat', Greenpeace said. Average levels in the capital Beijing stood at 120 micrograms per cubic meter in June, around double the rates in ozone hotspots like California and Mexico City. Ground-level ozone, known as 'sunburn for the lungs', is caused by the interaction of sunlight with nitrogen dioxide and volatile organic chemicals (VOCs). (more)
