3.4 Million New Doses of Vaccine in October

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced today that 3.4 million new doses of the American Swine Flu vaccine will be available in the first week of October. This new vaccine is inhaled instead of injected. It is recommended only for healthy individuals between ages 2 and 49 because it contains a live sample of the virus. Pregnant women and infants are warned against taking the inhaled vaccine. To learn more, click below:

It’s not just planes, trains, and automobiles switching to alternative energy sources. The world’s 50,000 diesel-powered containerships- which haul 90 percent of all good- are looking for ways to go green too. This fall Germany’s top shipping firm, Beluga, will launch its latest containership with a clean-tech twist: a giant kite that flies 1,000 feet above the bow, connected to an automated telescoping mast. Wind power won’t displace the ship’s giant diesel engines, but it will take a load off, slashing fuel consumption by as much as 30 percent.

One Shot for Older Kids

Teens, as well as adults, are now able to receive a one shot vaccine for H1N1. It was previously thought that a one shot vaccination was ill advised for those under 18. A new study shows that 76% of kids older than ten have a strong enough response to the vaccination. Such results are acceptable under federal standards. Children younger than ten are still recommended to take the two dose vaccine, as the one shot is proven to only be 25% effective in that age group. For more information, click the link below:

Shocking Statistics

It is estimated over 15,000 species (plant and animal) are currently threatened with extinction. Of these, one of every four mammals, and one of every eight birds, are facing a high risk of extinction in the near future.

In the last 500 years, human activity has forced over 800 species into extinction. In the last 10 years, the number of threatened animal species has increased from 5,205 to 7,266.
