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. If you could save your mothers life by walking a couple yards to the nearest trash can would you?
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.
Because they are unable to untangle themselves, they also die from starvation or from their inability to escape predators. 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 “One must be a sea, to receive a polluted stream without becoming impure”.
Shelley's poem talks about the world being mad at humans for polluting it. The world is grieving about how poorly we treat it. 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.
Moreover, the total amount of toxins and debris discharged by human beings is incredibly increasing in today 's world. 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.
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). That means that our use of plastic is not sustainable at all.
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.
Although recycling makes a difference, many container still end up in beaches and oceans. 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’.
With highly consumption of plastic, it raises up various questions as mentioned above. In this documentary, Angela Sun would like to lead us to find out the answers of these thesis. 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.
