Health burden of air pollution differs across racial groups
Air pollution has decreased across the U.S., but new research finds health burdens remain unequal among racial groups. Health benefits that have resulted from reductions in fine particulate air pollution aren-t distributed equally among populations in the U.S., a new Yale-led study finds. Racial and ethnic minorities - and Black people in particular - still experience disproportionately high rates of cardiovascular disease-related deaths caused by exposure to fine particulate matter, according to the research.

Is a critical system of ocean currents headed toward an imminent collapse?
Like the 60,000 miles of arteries and veins that course throughout the human body, ocean currents are the lifeblood of our planet-some flowing short distances, others circling the globe, but all playing a critical role in regulating climate. One of the most complex system of currents, the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, or AMOC, is a global conveyor belt, distributing heat throughout the Atlantic by carrying warmer waters north and cooler waters south.
