Welcome to the Environmental SCENE! Starting today, you can stay up to date on environmental topics, such as climate change, pollution, toxic substances, energy, and sustainability, by following C&EN's first topical news channel.

Here you'll find stories from C&EN's pages that report on what's happening at EPA, on the latest from the Gulf oil spill, and on the status of climate-change legislation.

The Environmental SCENE also includes stories that can't be found in the print magazine. These articles describe new environmental research, such as calculations of methylmercury pollution's health costs, the discovery that biodiesel may corrode pipelines and storage tanks, and findings that pharmaceuticals escape from drugmakers' plants into U.S. streams.
