Salem Abdullah Alazmi S00036124 Dr. Buckton-Tucker ENGL 102-05 May/4 Annotated Bibliography The earth is surrounded with oceans, oceans covers around 70% of the earth. With this number of oceans, all of it is effect by pollution. Many animals that lives inside these oceans are effected from this pollution. Not only the animals but also people, that may cause death to some people and to some animals, some animals are extinct because of the pollution. Humans are the reasonable behind all of this pollution. But as us humans, we don’t like to blame ourselves or realize that what we are doing is wrong and it going to affect badly to these animals and people. People are throwing trash into the sea like plastic bags, bottle of empty soda, and more …show more content…

These solid wastes specifically trash such as plastics, fishing wire, and rope are carried down the river and into the Sound and from there pulled into the ocean. Though it may seem as though it isn’t the large of a deal the trash floating over time breaks down but is never fully ridden from the water. This mean that if for example a water bottle were to float into the North Atlantic, the sun over time would help to break down the bonds of the plastic and eventually the plastic would completely dissolve, now this were the problem comes in no longer do you have just one piece of plastic but instead you have tiny pieces of plastic scattered throughout a wider area of the ocean than you did before. The introduction of these solid materials can result in a decrease in biodiversity as animals ingest the small plastic particles or get tangled up in rope, wire or plastic. It can also result in a huge payout of money by the State of North Carolina in an effort to clean up their shores.
The book The World is Blue by Sylvia A. Earle discusses how important marine life is for a steady Earth and what humans are doing wrong that is having a great impact on the oceans and life beneath the waters. Sylvia discusses all this extremely educational and beneficial information to the reader by her past experiences and her feelings towards them. She makes her opinions apparent, but in a way that is professional and allows the reader to see both sides to the problem. The way the book is written is by letting the reader really understand why the world needs the ocean and what impact the ocean has on humans everyday life. Also, she writes with facts and bullet points to show how her information is correct and she is not just over being over
Luther King says in "9 Interesting Facts and Statistics about Littering", 1.9 billion tons of litter end up in the ocean. The ocean is another ecosystem made up of many diverse animals and plants. In “ 5 Ways Pollution Is Killing Animals”, Abigail Geer tells us that there are many things that can pollute the water ranging from noise, chemical and acid runoff, waste water and oils. All of these types of pollutions are affecting the marine life drastically. Abigail tells us that noise pollution is hurting animals that use sonar to get around are becoming closer to extinction.
Pollution of industrial water caused by the discharge of harmful chemicals and substances into water, making it unsuitable for consumption and for other purposes. Although 70% of the land is covered with water, so water bodies such as lakes, ponds, rivers, reservoirs and watercourses provide us with fresh water, keep it clean, it is a matter of survival, not only for people, but also for all other life forms. Since the industrial revolution, we have achieved many things; our manufacturing process to become more efficient and productive, science has become more sophisticated, and our lives have changed. But perhaps nothing comes without a price. All the progress and development seen in past centuries have also brought with them a wide range of problems; water pollution is one of them.
Alex Grommesh Ms. Heise/Ms. Keel English 2 16 March 2018 The Negative Effects of Water Pollution The majority of all marine ships dispose of their waste by throwing it into the sea (Wroble 41). If they are caught doing this they can be charged for littering and be given anywhere between a three hundred to a two thousand dollar fine (this fine can be more or less depending on where it occurred). Furthermore, if what is being dumped is considered hazardous to the environment a jail sentence can be given to the perpetrator (“
From the beginning of the eighteenth century, technology has allowed us to live a comfortable and affluent life. The Industrial Revolution had widely spread technology around the world; however, as a result of the revolution, our planet has been affected a lot. It caused many pollution problems such as air pollution, water pollution, and marine pollution. Those pollutions are one of the most serious issues and some organizations and governments have already started to work toward those problems. Unfortunately, plastic pollution in the ocean has not been recognized as an urgent problem.
Pollution is happening in the world, and it starts with water. “The pollution entering our waterways comes from many sources: radioactive wastes from reactors, laboratories, and hospitals; fallout from nuclear explosions; domestic wastes from cities and towns; chemical wastes from factories” (Carson 39). There is evidence of chemicals being in streams and public water supplies. For example, scientists used a sample of water from an orchard area in Pennsylvania and tested it on the fish. The water contained so much insecticide that it killed the test fish in only four hours.
Pollution Technology has increased a lot in the last century and this created inventions that changed the world as it was known the humans, but these inventions and the industry of these inventions did create new problems that humans never faced before. Because of this increase of pollution new problems came to humans, for example, human health problems such as heart problems, lung problems, and skin problems. One more bigger problem is the rise of the temperature because of the global warming which will increase the temperature in the earth’s atmosphere and then the temperature will start to melt the ice around the world which will increase the sea level and this will create a lot more bigger problems, and these are only some of the problems
Fourteen billion pounds of garbage is dumped into the ocean every year. And most of that is plastic or harmful chemicals. Over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 sea mammals are killed by pollution every year. People who live in places with high levels of air pollutants have a 20% higher risk of death from lung cancer than people who live in less polluted areas, As stated by DoSomething.org. We have to find a way to polluting the waters.
Water Pollution is a huge environmental problem that has serious effects on marine habitats, animals, and water quality. BP1: The world's marine habitat has been getting worse because of how bad the pollution has gotten. “ Over 80% of marine pollution comes from land based activities “ (source 5 ). This quote explains how most of the water pollution is caused by human activity. “ Plastic litter does not degrade, can be expected to last in the oceans for hundreds of years “ ( source 6 ).
Contaminating our environment is a formed of pollution which provokes a environmentalism towards our ecosystem. The ecosystem is a range of different habitats consisting different species; each species has its own responsibility towards the environment; Species like albatross, "they only relies to the ocean for consuming", without food, albatross populations would start to deplete and this would have an implementation towards the food chain which we are part of. By dumping rubbish or chemicals directly to the water, this could affect the ecosystem which means the number of Aquatic lives will somehow be mutated, eradicated or be pressured to die. This is why Miyazaki, the director of "Spirited Away" set in 2001, was attempting to expressed the main idea of the environment and the human impacts in it. Spirited away is based on a young girl who impacts the environment and the spirit world.
Ocean litter is on type of marine pollution, that enters the through several different ways, like ‘at-sea’ dumping by fishing, merchant, recreational ships and cruises. Organisms are affected by the ocean base litter. Animals like fish, sea birds and other marine animals can by trapped and tangled in the litter, or they can ingest little fragments, which they think is ‘food’ (Robe Litter Survey,________). Australians use 13-14 billion drink containers every year. Although recycling makes a difference, many container still end up in beaches and oceans.
The ocean is nowadays undergoing numerous environmental issues that further lead to marine pollution. Marine pollution is a very serious environmental issue that most of the countries of the world encounter. Aquatic littering is considered as one of the major causes of marine environment. The misleading use of the marine environment is extremely impacting the marine life and ecosystems. Moreover, the total amount of toxins and debris discharged by human beings is incredibly increasing in today 's world.
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated,” (Mahatma Gandhi). People should understand that animal extinction can be slowed, even climate change deniers. By looking at pollution, habitat degradation, global warming/climate change, and solution, animal extinction can be helped and decrease. Firstly, to mention that animals are being hurt with human products because people leave their trash in the environment. Under many circumstances, pollution has caused an immense problem in the world.
