Modified viruses deliver death to antibiotic-resistant bacteria

AMI Images/SPL Phages (green) attack a bacterium (orange). Researchers are hoping to use engineered versions of these viruses to fight antibiotic resistance.Genetically modified viruses that cause bacteria to kill themselves could be the next step in . Several companies have engineered such viruses, called bacteriophages, to use the CRISPR gene-editing system to kill specific bacteria, according to a presentation at the CRISPR 2017 conference in Big Sky, Montana, last week. These companies could begin clinical trials of therapies as soon as next year. Initial tests have saved mice from...

Landmark Australian ruling rejects coal mine over global warming

Landmark Australian ruling rejects coal mine over global warming

An Australian court has rejected an application for an open-cut coal mine because of its potential contribution to greenhouse-gas emissions and global warming. The New South Wales Land and Environment Court turned down an appeal by mining company Gloucester Resources, which had sought to overturn a previous government decision against establishing a coal mine near the town of Gloucester in the Hunter Valley. It is the first time a new coal mine has been rejected in Australia, the world’s leading coal exporter, because of the potential contribution to global warming. In his ruling, chief...

Why pollution is plummeting in some cities — but not others

Why pollution is plummeting in some cities — but not others

The lockdowns implemented worldwide to stem the spread of the new coronavirus have caused an economic downturn, but also seem to have an upside — cleaner air over urban regions normally affected by heavy pollution. Scientists are now rushing to analyse why the effect is more pronounced in some places than in others. But they caution that the drop might not last long if the global economy ramps back up after the crisis.Still, shutting off a large portion of the economy serves as a natural control experiment by creating a world that has very few emissions, says Dan Westervelt, a climate and...
