The serenity of nature may be disappearing.
A group of artists filled a street in Toronto with thousands of books as a way to fight pollution, noise and traffic.
We can't deny that noise pollution can detrimentally affect humans and may induce various health hazards such as stress, sleep deprivation, and hypertension. But little did we realize that animals too have been experiencing stress and anxieties related to anthropogenic noise.
A new study says that wild owls' efficiency in hunting decreases up to 89 percent due to traffic noise.
The streets of Paris will be completely free of traffic jams, the sound of horns and exhaust fumes for one whole day in September.
Human noise pollution has effects on sea mammals in the Mediterranean Sea, according to research.
We've all heard about how noise pollution negatively impacts marine environments. But a recent study suggests that motor boats, rather than large cargo ships, easily stresses young damselfish which ultimately gives their predators the upper hand.
A critically endangered population of killer whales in the Pacific Northwest may be encountering more noise pollution than in the past. A recent study suggests large passing oil tankers emit sounds at frequencies killer whales use to communicate and echolocate. Ultimately, researchers say, this could impede their ability to find food they need to survive.
Scientists from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, recently learned a little more about the elusive marine creatures known as narwhals by focussing on newborns.
After experiencing days when the Eiffel Tower is obscured by smog, Paris' mayor declared a recent car-free day. An outside organization reported that exhaust emissions were cut by nearly 40 percent, despite the fact that cars were kept from driving only in the city center.
Ok.. so maybe not your dreams specifically, but this one is pretty darn cool. Scientists with Ocean Alliance recently dreamed up a way to take essential samples from whales without the gentle behemoths ever noticing, and Sir Patrick Stewart, of all people, is very excited to see this work come to fruition.
Scientists are still working to figure out how various noise pollution affects marine animals, and now new research suggests that the building of wind turbines may be putting the hearing of UK harbor seals at risk.
