Half of dead baby turtles found by Australian scientists have stomachs full of plastic | ECO EVOLUTION TODAY | Scoop.it
Baby sea turtles are particularly vulnerable to the harmful effects of plastic pollution, according to a new study which found around half of the recently hatched reptiles had stomachs full of plastic. In recent years, scientists have realised that animals ranging from plankton to whales are regularly consuming plastic, since around 10 million tons of it ends up in the sea
Al Cannistra's insight:

seems plastics are in the news daily - and not in a good way....  perhaps the call to stop production of "one-use" plastic needs to get louder....

In a first, renewables generated more electricity in the U.S. than coal for a month | ECO EVOLUTION TODAY | Scoop.it
The renewable energy sector in the United States generated more energy than coal-fired plants for the month of April, according to data released by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). That's the first time this has happened, and according to projections from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA), it may have happened again in May. Renewables include hydroelectricity, biomass, wind, solar and geothermal.

Milan is embarking on a bold plan to plant 3 million trees | ECO EVOLUTION TODAY | Scoop.it

Science has already established the many benefits of trees. Humanity has cut them down, perhaps it is time to restore them on a global basis – starting in every major city on planet earth. How to get someone with a voice to start that project? Bloomberg – are you listening?
