    Universities sign on to clean sewage from water ahead of Rio de Janeiro's 2016 Olympics
    Ap_417504874956Feed-twFeed-fbRIO DE JANEIRO — Rio de Janeiro Governor Luiz Fernando Pezao has signed a deal with several Brazilian universities and research institutes to develop a plan for cleaning up the polluted waters of the city's sewage-strewn Guanabara Bay, where Olympic sailing events will be held. See also: Waters for Rio de Janiero's 2016 Olympics are 'basically raw sewage' Pezao on Monday hailed the deal as a "very important step" toward the long-promised cleanup, which has dragged on for more than 20 years with little progress. As part of Brazil's Olympic project, authorities pledged to drastically cut the amount of raw human sewage in the bay before the 2016 games. Officials have assured that the water will be safe for the Olympic athletes and the medical director of the International Olympic Committee said all was on track for providing safe competing venues. But neither the government nor the IOC tests for viruses, relying on bacteria testing only. Read more...More about Brazil, Environment, Olympics, Pollution, and Us World
    A Republican president would find it difficult to erase Obama's climate plan
    JebclimateFeed-twFeed-fbThe Republican presidential candidates say they're the only ones who can stop the Obama administration's landmark climate rules. “This is going to be a disaster, and we should fight it,” said former Florida governor Jeb Bush of the Clean Power Plan, which Obama rolled out on Monday "I believe it is unconstitutional, and I believe in a relatively short period of time the courts will weigh in," Bush said, according to the Washington Post. "It doesn’t solve the carbon issue that President Obama is so preoccupied with, but it hollows out our industrial core." Bush, along with other leading Republican candidates, have criticized the plan for potentially raising energy costs and eliminating coal sector jobs — both of which are attacks that Obama fired back against at Monday. Texas Senator Ted Cruz, for example, said the regulations will "cause Americans' electricity costs to skyrocket at a time when we can least afford it."

    Challenger, Columbia space shuttle wreckage on public display for first time
    Space-shuttle-debris-_kramFeed-twFeed-fbCAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA is offering up wreckage from the Challenger and Columbia space shuttle tragedies for public view after hiding it from the world for decades. A new exhibit at Kennedy Space Center in Florida features two pieces of debris, one from each lost shuttle, as well as poignant, personal reminders of the 14 astronauts killed in flight. It is an unprecedented collection of artifacts — the first time, in fact, that any Challenger or Columbia remains have been openly displayed. NASA's intent is to show how the astronauts lived, rather than how they died. As such, there are no pictures in the "Forever Remembered" exhibit of Challenger breaking apart in the Florida sky nearly 30 years ago or Columbia debris raining down on Texas 12 years ago.

    IOC to order tests for viruses at Rio's Olympic water venues
    Brazil-triathlon_gilmFeed-twFeed-fbThe International Olympic Committee said Sunday it will order testing for disease-causing viruses in the sewage-polluted waters where athletes will compete during next year's Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games. Before, the IOC and local Olympic organizers in Rio said they would only test for bacteria in the water, as Brazil and virtually all nations only mandate such testing to determine the safety of recreational waters. But after an Associated Press investigation published last week revealed high counts of viruses directly linked to human sewage in the Olympic waters, the IOC reversed course after being advised by the World Health Organization (WHO) that it should expand its testing.
