Study Shows Benefits of Closing Coal Plants Could Be Broader in the US Than Previously Thought

Recent research has suggested that shutting down coal plants could have even broader health benefits than experts previously thought. While experts already knew that coal plant closures resulted in cleaner air and better air-quality levels, a new study indicates that cleaning up the air could have greater benefits than data suggested. Researchers studied the 2016 closure of a coal processing plant in Neville Island on the Ohio River that had produced coal-coke for steelmaking processes for close to a century. They discovered a substantial reduction in air-pollution levels in neighboring communities. Specifically, sulfur dioxide went down by 90% and arsenic…

Surging Equities Reduce Allure of Gold as Inflation Rages On

Gold-backed exchange-traded funds (ETF) are losing their safe haven appeal amid fears of an economic slowdown in the United States, well-performing equities and increasing bond yields even as inflation continues to ravage the global economy.

In past years, geopolitical turmoil and economic slowdowns have consistently increased investor interest in gold as investors have sought to store their money in nondepreciating assets. A mini-crisis in the U.S. regional banking sector…

Prices for the red metal have trended downward partly due to reduced demand, particularly from major copper importer China, and disappointing import and export data from the Asian nation. A sharp drop in global demand caused by worsening economic conditions in Europe and slowed economic recovery in manufacturing giant China also caused prices to drop significantly…
