When Shipping Petroleum, Air Pollution and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Costs More Than Accidents
October 10, 2017 03:18 PM - Carnegie Mellon University

While the policy debate surrounding crude oil transportation costs has emphasized accidents and spills, a new study by Carnegie Mellon University and University of Pittsburgh researchers indicates the debate is overlooking a far more serious external cost—air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

NASA Sees Post Tropical Cyclone Nate's Wide Rainfall Reach
October 10, 2017 11:55 AM - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite analyzed the temperatures in Post-tropical cyclone Nate's cloud tops as the storm moved over the Ohio Valley. Satellite imagery showed the storm was bringing rainfall from the northeastern U.S., to the Mid-Atlantic and south through the Appalachian Mountains.
