The virus probably arrived in humans through contact with animals raised for food supply, though scientists have yet to determine which species, he said. Studies have sh...

It was supposed to be a blockbuster moment for the U.S. plastic industry. With an abundance of cheap natural gas at hand, thanks to the country’s fracking boom, U.S. energy giants were pouring billions of dollars into building new plants to turn that gas into plastic.
