Hurricane Florence is only the latest environmental, financial and reputational calamity to hit the nation’s vast livestock industry this year.
Even before last month’s torrential rains caused widespread losses and flooding in hog waste lagoons across North Carolina, meat producers had come under growing pressure due to extensive pollution from their sprawling factory farms, which confine thousands of hogs and chickens in tightly packed facilities.

Consensus expectations for electric vehicle (EV) sales have been – and remain – too low.

A record number of visitors traveled to Interior Alaska's Denali National Park and Preserve last year, but they left behind less trash than a few years before.
A push to send less waste to the local landfill is working, officials say. Since 2016, Denali National Park has partnered with Subaru in a "zero-landfill" initiative aimed at turning trash into recycling.
