One week on, jittery Mexico far from coming to grips with quakeA week after an earthquake that killed more than 300 people, a shaken Mexico was torn Tuesday between trying to get back to normal and keeping up an increasingly hopeless search for survivors. Improbably, it hit just two hours after an annual earthquake drill, turning Mexico City's most seismically unstable neighborhoods into something out of a post-apocalyptic movie. Scores more were killed in the states of Morelos, Puebla, Mexico, Guerrero and Oaxaca.

French government declares war on pesticidesFrance is planning to cut back on use of all pesticides, the government said Monday, though it rowed back on an announcement of an outright ban on controversial chemical glyphosate. Government spokesman Christophe Castaner had said earlier Monday that France -- Europe's biggest food producer -- intended to phase out glyphosate completely by 2022 over fears that it may cause cancer.

Plastic waste now polluting Arctic Ocean, scientists find Plastic waste in the ocean is now so widespread it is polluting remote ice floes in the Arctic, scientists have discovered. A team from Exeter University discovered blocks of polystyrene in areas hundreds of miles from land which until recently were covered by ice all year round. Large plastic pieces break down into ‘microplastics’ which are consumed by wildlife and are then passed up the food chain. The expedition was able to go further into the Central Arctic Ocean than any other yacht in history, because of recent reductions in summer ice cover in the Arctic, which is thought to be the result of climate change. Scientists fear the blocks are breaking up into microplastics  Credit: CONOR MCDONNELL @CONORMCDPHOTO Marine biologist Tim Gordon of Exeter University said: “Finding pieces of rubbish like this is a worrying sign that melting ice may be allowing high levels of pollution to drift into these areas. “This is potentially very dangerous for the Arctic’s wildlife. “The Arctic Ocean’s wildlife used to be protected by a layer of sea ice all year round. Now that is melting away, this environment will be exposed to commercial fishing, shipping and industry for the first time in history. “We need to seriously consider how best to protect the Arctic’s animals from these new threats. By doing so, we will give them a fighting chance of adapting and responding to their rapidly-changing habitat.” The Arctic Mission team also used nets with holes smaller than a millimetre to sieve for microplastics in the water. They will now analyse the samples in the laboratory to evaluate current levels of pollution in the Arctic and its likely impacts on wildlife. Estimates suggest there are over 5 trillion pieces of plastic floating in the world’s oceans, and there are estimates it will soon outweigh fish. Scientists are now checking the area of microplastics Scientists fear there is now enough plastic to form a permanent layer in the fossil record. Dr Ceri Lewis, scientific adviser to the expedition based at the University of Exeter, said: “Many rivers lead into the Arctic Ocean that are often a source of plastic pollution, but plastic pollution has been literally trapped into the ice. “Now the ice is melting we believe microplastics are being released into the Arctic.  The Arctic is thought to be a hot spot of microplastics accumulation due to the number of rivers that empty into the Arctic basin, yet we have very little data to support this idea in the more northerly parts of the Arctic Ocean. “This is really important data to collect as the Arctic supports many key fisheries which might be impacted but the presence of microplastics.”The team are is investigating the impact of man-made noise pollution on Arctic marine life and mammals, which can be particularly sensitive to sound. The Arctic Mission team used underwater loudspeakers and microphones to understand how sound travels through the polar seas, and how this might be impacted by ice loss. Professor Steve Simpson, an expert in bioacoustics and noise pollution at Exeter said: "It is critical that we establish baseline natural recordings in this newly exposed oceanic environment. “These recordings will allow us to understand how human activities are changing the soundscape of the summer Arctic, and assess the success of future noise management in this unique acoustic world.”

Archaeologists Solve Mystery Of How Easter Island's Tiny Population Built Hundreds Of Statues“It appears the island could have supported 17,500 people at its peak, which represents the upper end of the range of previous estimates,” said Cedric Puleston, lead author of the study, based at the Department of Anthropology at the University of California, in a statement. “Despite its almost complete isolation, the inhabitants of Easter Island created a complicated social structure and these amazing works of art before a dramatic change occurred,” Puleston added. “We examined detailed maps, took soil samples around the Island, placed weather stations, used population models andestimated sweet potato production.
