AbstractWe will provide a review of the knowledge base from studies on injuries in the WHO European Region from 2010 to 2019, both cross-country and within-country, for all causes and cause-specific. The focus is whether inequalities between countries and within countries persist such that people from low socioeconomic status and from less affluent areas tend to die by injury to a greater extent than others. This has previously been observed for most causes of injury (e.g., traffic, self-directed violence, interpersonal violence, poisoning, burns) but also for several settings (e.g., home, work, transport) based on a revie...

As workers continue to comb beaches for tar balls in California’s Orange County after an underwater pipeline ruptured on Oct. 2, another massive fossil fuel cleanup operation is just getting underway on a 55-year-old rig anchored 120 miles up the coast. It’s a taxpayer-funded, $60 million debacle that reveals just how difficult and costly it may be to shut down aging oil rigs in the Pacific Ocean and decarbonize the country’s energy supply. Anchored two miles off Santa Barbara, the rig in question, known as Platform Holly, was built by ARCO in 1966, sold to Mobil in 1993, then sold again to a small Colora...
