How our microplastic waste becomes ‘hubs’ for pathogens, antibiotic-resistant bacteria

A new study shows how microplastics found in our daily personal care products can also host pathogens and boost antibiotic-resistant bacteria by up to 30 times once they wash down…

Droughts in Germany could become more extreme

Researchers analyse data from the last millennium In the future, droughts could be even more severe than those that struck parts of Germany in 2018. An analysis of climate data…

A new view on plate tectonics

Nature study finds transform faults play active role in shaping ocean floors. Forces acting inside the Earth have been constantly reshaping the continents and ocean basins over millions of years….
