Italy's polluted Po Valley gasps for fresh air

It is only the end of February, but air pollution in Milan has already exceeded the legal limit for 2019, and the Po Valley swims in a soupy smog. "I can really feel when there's smog, I suffer all winter long," 45-year old Milan local Fabio Cigognini told AFP, describing the asthma-like symptoms which plague him during the cold months. Set against the mountains, far from the ocean and cleansing sea breezes, Italy's major northern city and the Po Valley have always been at a disadvantage, clim...

Italy's M5S abandoned environment promises, say critics

Italy's anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S) made the environment one of its main campaign themes in 2018. "We expected much more from them in terms of climate and the environment," admits Stefano Ciafani, national head of Italy's environmental lobby Legambiente. No fewer than 52 pages were dedicated to the chapter on the environment in the M5S electoral programme, the fruit of a wide-ranging consultation online with the movement's members.

Withholding antibiotics from over-65s may increases cases of deadly sepsis, study shows

Withholding antibiotics for common infections in over-65s may increases cases of deadly sepsis, researchers have warned. Under new guidelines to fight antibiotic resistance GPs have been discouraged from giving pills for infections, leading to a 7.4 per cent reduction in the amount of antibiotics prescribed between 2014 and 2017. But new research from Imperial College London which looked at 150,000 patients over 65 between 2007 and 2015 found that for every 37 patients not given antibiotics for ...

Boeing lands huge British Airways order after A380's demise

British Airways announced a multi-billion dollar order for up to 42 Boeing 777 fuel-efficient passenger jets on Thursday, just two weeks after Airbus said it would no longer make its A380 superjumbo. Separately, UK engineering group Rolls-Royce said it dived into a net loss last year as its Trent jet engines were hit by costly repairs -- as well as the decision by Boeing's European rival Airbus to pull the plug on the A380.

Republican senator opposes Trump EPA pick over climate change

Collins said Wheeler's efforts to roll back standards on emissions blamed for climate change takes the country in the wrong direction. Five Republican senators from oil states, led by Ted Cruz of Texas, sent a letter to Wheeler dated Feb. 11 asking about his biofuels policies, and saying their confirmation votes could hinge on his responses. Wheeler said this month the EPA plans to take actions on the pollutants but stopped short of setting limits until later this year.
