Environmentalists have targeted a nuclear power plant in New England, in hopes of clamping down on it and reducing what they say is excessive pollution. They're threatening a lawsuit under the Clean Water Act if regulators don't act.
A project in Oregon seeks to turn a long-dormant volcano into a source of power for as many as a million people. It would involve pumping water deep into the water, where the geothermal activity would turn that water into steam to spin turbines — without producing CO2.
Understanding complex data is something scientist do every day. But when it comes to taking that data and conveying it to average people, it can be a bit more tricky. Peter Larsen, a biologist, decided to take that data and turn it into song.
When you think of your house plant, it would be hard to imagine it growing legs and running away when you come with the clippers. But for a species of ocean "plants," when predators approach, they literally flee for safety.

A group of French scientists are raising questions about the safety of genetically modified corn. The scientists say, specifically, that Roundup Ready corn causes tumors in rats, and therefore isn't safe in humans -- a claim wholly rejected by Roundup producer Monsanto.
Yale's Project on Climate Change Communication set out to see how the environment, specifically global warming, might influence undecided voters. What they found was undecided voters believe in climate change and will consider how a candidate views climate change when casting a ballot.
Haiti's got a new leader who is determined to make the country more environmentally friendly. Along the way, he's trying to save one of the country's national parks. But at the same time, he's also forcing some long-time park "residents" away from the only home they know.
