Russian Scientists Discover Bacteria That Neutralizes Nuclear Wast

Russian Scientists Discover Bacteria That Neutralizes Nuclear Wast The unique bacteria, discovered in a nuclear waste storage site in Siberia, shows promise as a tool for the creation of a natural barrier to the spread of radionuclides. Researchers from the Moscow-based Frumkin Institute of Physical Chemistry and the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Federal Research Center for Biotechnology have been able to isolate microorganisms which can be used to safeguard the surrounding environment from liquid radioactive waste. Scientists made the discovery while conducting microbiological studies of the groundwater at the Seversky deep radiation burial site in Seversk, Tomsk region, Siberia, where… Continue Reading

The Cities are the Cancer of the Earth

History tends to show that urbanization has always been accompanied by a movement of agriculture towards monocultures and peasant exploitation.
