Coal mining has negative impact on freshwater stream biodiversity

Coal mining has negative impact on freshwater stream biodiversity

Coal energy is expected to remain a key component of the national electricity portfolio until 2040, according to the Energy Information Administration.  Previous research suggests that coal mining operations can negatively impact the environment.  For instance, mountaintop-mining valley fill operations, common across Appalachia, often result in bioaccumulation of toxic chemicals in fish while other mining operations acidify freshwater streams.

Long-term water resources data collection network is shrinking

Long-term water resources data collection network is shrinking

Though nearly 71% of the Earth is covered in water, less than 3% of Earth’s water is fresh water, and only about 0.3% is readily available to humans in lakes, streams, rivers, and wetlands.  Reliable accounting of this limited resource is therefore fundamental to manage freshwater allocations to both ecosystems and society.
