climate change

These days, people who sneeze and wheeze a lot during allergy season in the spring and fall are likely to suffer about 20 days longer than in previous years. That’s according to a recent study by the National Academy of Sciences.

Cars and trucks are leading sources of air pollution in Pennsylvania, according to a study by PennEnvironment, a research group that tracks climate change.

Three Department of Environmental Protection advisory committees say the state should move forward with a regulation that would have Pennsylvania join a regional cap and trade program meant to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Along party lines, the Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee passed Senate Bill 119 which requires legislative approval of a program that puts a price on carbon, like the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative.

Well-known climate scientist and Penn State professor Michael Mann argues in a new book that there are many tools for addressing climate change and transitioning to green energy.
