That 's 30 percent of the global total. The top countries most responsible for the plastic pollution issue are as following, China, The Philippines, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Egypt, Malaysia, Nigeria, and Bangladesh. What are we gonna do about it? Switch bag materials or don 't even provide bags just make the people bring their own bags and then they can continue to reuse them and then we won 't have the issue of plastic ending up in the ocean. Innocent animals we haven 't even discovered yet are dying because people can 't walk 10 feet to a trash can.
The Oil Spill has stressed the earth and society of individuals in light of the fact that the Oil fix that executed 1,978 flying creatures, 463 ocean turtles and 59 marine warm blooded animals. Individuals couldn 't angle or eat ocean depths. “We are fighting the oil at every front” (qtd. Black James, chief operation commander at the center). Moreover, the sun made the oil turned into a bad dream to the earth in light of the fact that the sun blazed the Oil on the ocean.
On a report in 2006 called Plastic Debris in the World’s Oceans, It was estimated that at least 267 different animal species have suffered from entanglement and ingestion of plastic debris. Some species are consumers of jelly fish, but often mistake plastic bags for their natural prey, which obstructs the oesophagus of sea turtles therefor killing them. It has been estimated that about 400,000 marine mammals die annually due to plastic pollutions in the ocean. As said by Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
Friekel's story talks about Kehoe beach. A ample amount of plastic washes up there every year. A couple goes there and makes art out of the plastic. Both texts also have a similar tone. Shelley's poem has a sad, upset, and emotional tone.
Most of the waste produced on land is either intentionally or unconsciously discharged into the oceans. Marine pollution and aquatic debris can utterly destroy the oceans causing extinction of the marine creatures. Innovative techniques should be implemented in the law to prevent the marine environment from any further damage. In order to improve the marine environment, the government and the Environment Public Authority of Kuwait should take immediate actions that can influence the society and help in minimizing aquatic debris and pollution. Aquatic littering and marine pollution can be caused by a number of different sources.
Ocean Pollution DBQ Did you know that every year, eight million metric tons of plastic is dumped or somehow ends up in the ocean (Doc. 1)? The following sentences will talk about what people are doing to pollute the oceans and how they are making the pollution better. Humans are the biggest threat to animals in the ocean because they litter so much (OI). Sometimes, people litter without even knowing they're littering.
Obviously the development of producing plastic went to quick and people did not think of a unified and sustainable way of how to dispose the huge amount of plastic. Unfortunately many countries decided to dispose all the garbage into the ocean but also ship accidents are a reason why so much plastic accumulated in our ocean. Every year more than eight million tons of plastic waste leak into the ocean. A big issue nowadays is that most of the plastic which is produced in one year is used to make disposable items of packaging or other short lived products that are discarded within a year (Philosophical Transactions of The Royal Society, 2009).
Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas struggles a lot with plastic pollution because its main income and food source is fishing. Plastic pollution hinders the amount of fish they gather and therefore slows down the rate of their income. Nassau is already a LIC and therefore plastic pollution causes famine there. They have already started to think about banning plastic bags. And if the plastic pollution rises then there will be losses of $8.5 million in tourist income annually for the country because of the pollution on the beach this happens in other countries as well.
The drink containers cause death and injuries for many wildlife and marine creatures. Animals like whales and dolphins become victims of land litter, as 80% of majority of the plastics comes directly from land. Dr Jennifer Lavers, researched the impacts of plastics on marine life, claims that 85% of Australian marine birds are affected by plastics (Stop trashing Australia, 2012). Apart from animals getting tangled in debris, it is extremely harmful when there is run down fishing gear, as it results in ‘ghost fishing’. ‘Ghost fishing is hen lost fishing gear continues to catch fish.
In the major part of the movie, Angela Sun and other environmental activists go to different huge “garbage land” in the worldwide where do the global plastic trash concentrates in. As the marine stream system, the plastic garbage which from the global concentrate in some particular island. There are also so many shocking statistics about the amount of plastic garbage can showcase how serious are the problems are. Besides, she investigates how the substantial amount of
Prior to industrialization, the forests used to serve as buffer zones from the farms to naturally sift out much of the excess nutrients. With the growth of population, farms, and factories, thousands of acres of forest has been leveled, eliminating the natural barrier. Along with the with forest loss, the use of pesticides and chemicals has degraded the water so much that the Bay is currently on the Environmental Protection Agency 's "dirty waters" index.
The garbage did not only just clog the water but the chemicals in the plastic bottles that can affect the fish the people farm in for a living that could change their life habits and animals that could go in extinct. Plastics have been entering the ocean every year and has become worse since now. By this problem we can start recycling water bottles that we see so we can start making it to use again instead of littering our ocean with plastic that has become a disaster. Not only the ocean is filled up with garbage but it also can cause infections in the water. People who also like to fish can come to end for fishing in the oceans because of this people may no longer fish
In the source used, Thomas Hayden’s (2002) article, “Trashing the Oceans”, the ethos argument is persuasive in its wording because of its easy to understand, inviting nature and relatability, while still informing the reader about the disturbing information coming from the accounts of a research vessel that goes by the title Alguita, a vessel that has been studying the oceanic garbage since 1999. This article has already displayed all three arguments of logos, pathos and ethos in just a few paragraphs. The compared article, written by John H. Tibbetts “Managing Marine Plastic Pollution” does not do this. An example of the ethos attributes of “Trashing the Oceans” is the introduction pertaining to Taco bell.
