US shutdown hits Obama's climate agenda as EPA staff are sent home 2.10.2013 Guardian: Science
Officials say government shutdown will disrupt monitoring of air and water quality and delay new rules for penalising polluters About 94% of the employees of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have been sent on leave of absence as part of the US government shutdown. Nearly all of the agency's 16,205 employees across the country, with oversight of air quality, industrial waste, water and sewage treatment plants, have powered down their computers, updated their voicemail, filled in their last timesheets, and left buildings as part of the shutdown. Only 1,069 essential staff – such as emergency personnel who deal with events posing an "imminent threat to human life" such as chemical spills or rail derailments– remained on duty. A few workers also stayed behind to feed lab animals, and water test plants. EPA officials said the shutdown would disrupt monitoring of air and water quality.

Dangerous radioactivity found at waste site 2.10.2013 Guardian: Environment
Co-author of study says UK must impose better environmental regulation than US if it pursues shale gas extraction Scientists have for the first time found dangerous levels of radioactivity and salinity at a shale gas waste disposal site that could contaminate drinking water. If the UK follows in the steps of the US "shale gas revolution" , it should impose regulations to stop such radioactive buildup, they said. The Duke University study, published on Wednesday, examined the water discharged from Josephine Brine Treatment Facility into Blacklick Creek, which feeds into a water source for western Pennsylvania cities, including Pittsburgh. Scientists took samples upstream and downstream from the treatment facility over a two-year period, with the last sample taken in June this year. Elevated levels of chloride and bromide, combined with strontium, radium, oxygen, and hydrogen isotopic compositions, are present in the Marcellus shale wastewaters, the study found. Radioactive brine is ...
