The Need For Environment Cleanup
Although the ocean covers two-thirds of the surface of the Earth, the need for environment cleanup is extremely important and it is surprisingly vulnerable to human influences such as overfishing, pollution from run-off, and dumping of waste from human activity. This kind of pollution can have serious economic and health impacts by killing marine life, mammals, and fish . All forms of these listed pollution sources can cause extensive loss of marine life in bays, rivers, lakes, and estuaries leading to the creation of dead zones. The dumping of industrial, nuclear and other waste into oceans was legal until the early 1970’s when it became regulated by the government. However, the devastating facts demonstrate that dumping still occurs illegally everywhere.
From Polluted Water to A Cleaner Ocean
Although ocean dumping is now managed to limited degree, toxins are still spread by ocean currents. Alternatives to ocean dumping include recycling, producing less wasteful products, saving energy, and changing the dangerous material into more benign waste.
