Summary

In science news around the world, Liberia reports a new case of Ebola, 11 protestors attempting to block construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope on Hawaii's Mauna Kea are arrested, the U.S. Supreme Court strikes down a regulation to limit emissions of mercury from coal power plants, the Smithsonian Institution overhauls its ethics policies in the wake of controversy around one of its researchers, a Dutch court orders the government to do more to combat climate change, and more. Also, surgeon Paolo Macchiarini responds to a May report that found him guilty of scientific misconduct during his clinical testing of artificial tracheas. And a new study confirms an early finding that a set of bones found on a remote Pacific Island—thought by some to belong to lost aviator Amelia Earhart—instead belonged to a middle-aged man.
