Daily Roundup: July 27, 2010

Climate Refugees: As a response to worsening global warming, more Mexicans – a predicted 7 million by 2080 – will immigrate to the U.S., new research shows. National Geographic

All Clear? Chinese officials reported that the oil from a massive spill that happened 10 days ago is all cleaned up. Environmentalists are skeptical. Los Angeles Times

Yet Another: At least 800,000 gallons of oil spewed into a tributary of Michigan’s Kalamazoo River yesterday after a pipeline that carries oil into Canada sprung a leak. Birds and other wildlife are coated in the sludge. Chicago Tribune

Justice For All: The EPA is focusing more on the low-income and minority communities that are much likelier to suffer from environmental ills. The agency aims to ensure that these underrepresented groups are better protected. Greenwire

Photographic Find:
A stash of Ansel Adams negatives worth $200 million were sold at a garage sale to a California artist for $45. Some of the photos are of early-1900s Yosemite. CNN
