How Using Antibiotics In Animal Feed Creates Superbugs
A study shows how an antibiotic-susceptible Staph germ passed from humans into pigs, where it became resistant to the antibiotics tetracycline and methicillin. And then the antibiotic-resistant Staph learned to jump back into humans.
As early as the 1970s, the FDA recognized that the use of antibiotics in animals for non-therapeutic reasons could promote the development of antibiotic-resistant pathogens that are harmful to humans.
In December, the FDA withdrew a 1977 proposal to remove approvals for two antibiotics, penicillins and tetracyclines, used in livestock and poultry feed. It said it would focus instead on "voluntary reform" by the meat industry to limit use.
Climate scientist admits duping skeptic group to obtain documents
Peter Gluck, who studies the hydrological cycle and serves as president of the Pacific Institute for Studies in Development, Environment and Security, admitted he had tricked the conservative Heartland Institute into providing him with documents detailing their activities and donors.
Max Boykoff, an assistant professor at the CIRES Center for Science & Technology Policy at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the author of “Who Speaks for the Climate?,” said the ongoing feud has undermined the public’s understanding of climate science and policy.

Nisbet questioned Gleick’s tactics, writing, “The incident is the latest in an escalating spiral of polarizing warfare between self-described ‘Climate Hawks’ and so-called Climate Deniers. Caught in the crossfire are the great majority of scientists and members of the public who yearn to work together in their communities, regions and nationally to find common ground.”
