US' Environment Protection Agency to replace Barack Obama-era carbon and clean water regulations 10.1.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will replace Obama-era carbon and clean water regulations and open up a national debate on climate change in 2018, part of a list of priorities for the year that also includes fighting lead contamination in public drinking water. The agenda, laid out by EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt in an exclusive interview with Reuters on Tuesday, marks an extension of the agency’s efforts under President Donald Trump to weaken or kill regulations the administration believes are too broad and harm economic growth, but which environmentalists say are critical to human health. "The climate is changing. That's not the debate. The debate is how do we know what the ideal surface temperature is in 2100?... I think the American people deserve an open honest transparent discussion about those things,” said Pruitt, who has frequently cast doubt on the causes and implications of global warming. Pruitt reaffirmed plans for the EPA to host a public debate on climate science sometime this ...

Egypt building huge water treatment plant amid supply concerns 8.1.2018 General News
Egypt is building a major water treatment and desalination plant, the president said today, as the Nile-dependent nation plans for any fallout from an upstream dam being built by Ethiopia. The North African country is constructing "the largest wastewater treatment and desalination plant", President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said live on state television. "We are only doing what we need to do so we can solve a potential problem," he added, speaking during the inauguration of infrastructure and housing projects. While Sisi did not elaborate, Egypt fears its water supply will be affected by Ethiopia's Grand Renaissance Dam being built on the Blue Nile. Egypt relies almost totally on the Nile for irrigation and drinking water, and says it has "historic rights" to the river, guaranteed by treaties from 1929 and 1959. Cairo argues that the treaties grant it 87 per cent of the Nile's flow, as well as the power to veto upstream projects. The Blue and the White Nile tributaries ...

New catalyst can clean toxic nitrates from drinking water 8.1.2018 General News
Scientists have developed a new catalyst that cleans toxic nitrates from drinking water, by converting them into air and water. "Nitrates come mainly from agricultural runoff, which affects farming communities all over the world," said Michael Wong, from Rice University in the US. "Nitrates are both an environmental problem and health problem because they're toxic," said Wong, lead scientist on the study in the journal ACS Ctalysis. "There are ion-exchange filters that can remove them from water, but these need to be flushed every few months to reuse them, and when that happens, the flushed water just returns a concentrated dose of nitrates right back into the water supply," said Wong. The researchers had earlier shown that tiny gold spheres dotted with specks of palladium could break apart nitrites, the more toxic chemical cousins of nitrates. "Nitrates are molecules that have one nitrogen atom and three oxygen atoms," Wong said. "Nitrates turn into nitrites if they lose
