Marine Pollution
The ocean covers almost three quarters of our planet. Populations in coastal regions are growing and placing increasing pressure on coastal and marine ecosystems. Marine pollution of many kinds threatens the health of the ocean and its living resources. While the past decades have seen efforts at the local, national, and international levels to address the problems of marine pollution, more needs to be done.

13 Shocking Effects of Pollution
13 Very important and terrible effects of the pollution that us humans are creating from trash harming animals to noise pollution Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7. Acid Rain Acid rain can occur naturally from volcanic emissions but there is a direct result of human activities and acid rain. With toxic fumes getting mixed into clouds, they get absorbed into our atmosphere and can come out from rain. Animals and plants need a particular ph level in order to stay healthy... 6. Noise Pollution Effects Many of us might limit the idea of pollution only to nature and not sound. We are quite used to the sounds of urban life and it doesn’t begin to bother us. Whether it’s listening to music or pets barking, it might not be a serious issue. But when noise keeps us from going to sleep at night, it begins to turn into pollution. This normal infers to noises that are unnatural and excessive. This can actually lead to more problems than you’d like to think. Our ears were not constructed to handle the amount of noise that we might experience in the big cities of today. Loud noise can certainly lead to sleeping disorders and health issues as well. Studies show that aggressiveness can be a direct link to noise pollution. This affects other animals as well, especially since they rely heavily on sound in for things such as hunting and mating rituals. 5. Toxic Air Pollution Some places in China are experiencing record high levels of air pollution. It’s getting so rough out there that even dogs are wearing surgical masks to protect themselves from the toxic fumes. In 2015, 100 million people were warned and told to stay inside their houses across 10 different cities. Schools and factories were shut down, hoping to reduce exposure to the heavy blankets of toxic air swarming the country. Rising levels of air pollution have caused a new disease; called the Beijing Cough. This is from burning a large amount of petroleum in recent years. In the past, the air pollution from China has travelled to the Central Valley of California. A number of children suffer from respiratory illnesses and things don’t seem to be getting any better. Kids are more vulnerable to respiratory illnesses due to their size Living somewhere with a lot of pollution certainly makes it difficult for Santa Claus act jolly during Christmas time 4. Smog Smog is a direct result of air pollution and other places like LA There are several pollutants that make the sky murky. There’s particulate matter which includes smoke and is the main cause for smog. But there are other pollutants that are released which certainly don’t help. Other common air pollutants include Hydrocarbons, Sulfur Dioxides, and silent, invisible killer (carbon monoxide). Cars, and trucks also emit a large amount of smog. A simple way to reduce this is to participate in carpooling or taking public transportation. Each year, 50,000 or more people die in the US due to air pollution. 3. Trash Outweighing Fish It’s predicted that in the future, about 30 years from now if changes aren’t made, they’re will be more trash in Earth’s oceans. The amount of plastic waste is much higher than other type of trash that is found and is much more hazardous to our ecosystem. Much of this could simply be avoided by just recycling. The plastic is not only valuable to companies who want to use it, but quite important to keep out of our oceans. It takes one plastic water bottle, 450 years to biodegrade. Some bottles possibly 1000! Debris left over from fishing can be left in the ocean and harm seals like we see in this photo. 2. Fish Kills Another shocking effect of pollution is what’s known as a fish kill. This is when a large amount of fish show up dead and can be caused from numerous environmental factors. Although there are natural causes for this, things like toxicity, reduced levels of dissolved oxygen and drought are all possible ways. Agricultural pollutions with water rich in pesticides can often reach places where fish are present. If a chemical like cyanide is released into the water, people will be able to tell from the fish's gills turning a cherry red. The fish’s habitat is fairly fragile and any slight changes in chemical compounds can result in fish kills. 1. Global Warming With so much carbon and greenhouse gases being emitted into the air, where are they supposed to go? Our ozone layer which regulates our temperature, keeps gases from escaping. Temperatures changed and oceans are getting warmer and even slight changes can have dramatic consequences. Glaciers melting. Coral reefs disappearing, droughts, floods can all be a result of this. Let’s all do our part and keep mother earth alive and flourising… Before it’s too late.

Ocean pollution: 60% of plastic waste in the oceans comes from just five Asian countries - TomoNews
DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA — Plastic waste is slowly but surely taking over the world's oceans, and the bulk of them apparently comes from just five Asian countries. According to a study from Ocean Conservancy called Stemming the Tide, 55-60% of plastic polluting the oceans comes from five countries: China, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam. Uncollected and mismanaged waste on land accounts for about 80% of the 8 million metric tons of trash that flow into the oceans each year. Environmental organization Greenpeace claims corporations are also at fault for selling products in single-use plastic packaging, especially in so-called 'sachet economies' like the Philippines. Various studies have shown that plastic pollution negatively impacts marine animals, and may be indirectly affecting humans through the food chain. Fortunately, improving waste management practices in the five countries can result in a 45% reduction of global plastic waste leakage by 2025. In tackling plastic pollution, everyone has a role to play. From governments and big conglomerates to the people on the street — every bit helps. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- TomoNews is your best source for real news.

Pollution of sea in Vietnam April 6th, 2016
Hello my friends. From April 6th to now, sea water in Vietnam (From Hà Tĩnh to Huế) has polluted very seriously. You must not use seafood or go to the beach in this year, even though some cities like Đà Nẵng or Ninh Bình, Hà Nội. Because the flow can flow to the north or south. Vietnamese has stopped use everything from sea, some family has saved salt and fish sauce. Cause of this pollution is from Formosa company (Taiwan's company) in Hà Tĩnh city has discharged polluted water to the sea. Experiment: 2 fishes die after 2 minutes in sea water from Vũng Áng (Hà Tĩnh). (and all of cities in the map too). Share this post for your friends and family to know.

Despite the vastness of Earth’s oceans, plastic pollutants are turning up everywhere, from the deep sea to the Arctic ice pack. Shockingly, researchers estimate that by 2050 the oceans will contain more plastic—by weight—than fish. As these degrading plastics leach potentially toxic chemicals into the seas, they pose a serious threat to ocean animals, as well as to humans. To combat this frightening prognosis, Hawaii—among other places—is contemplating a ban on the sale and distribution of single-use polystyrene.

Causes and effects of water pollution
Water is a  basic resource that  guarantees the life of all living beings on the planet. However, its scarcity and pollution cause millions of people to have poor access to this much-needed asset. Although there are processes such as water treatment or desalination that facilitate its treatment, use and consumption in areas with quality or supply problems, it is first necessary to avoid its contamination. In this video we show you what are the main causes of water pollution, as well as its effects.

Water Pollution
Water Pollution is a familiar topic, where solutions are rarely found. The reasons are usually industrialization and lack of political will. In a world ruled by the power of money, polluting our water sources and driving thousands of animal species to extinction is a less important issue than following corporate interests. Water is everyone's right and we must unite to prevent water ownership and privatization. Cookie is a spotted seal, who is concerned about people's treatment of the water sources worldwide. Going from one fact to the other, he comes to the conclusion, that those who have the biggest impact are the ones who can actually make a change and prevent further damage on the most important natural resource. © Kiril Kalchev HdM Stuttgart 2013 Inform yourself clicking the links bellow: http://www.edf.org/ (Environmental Defense Fund) http://www.nrdc.org/oceans/plastic-ocean/ (Natural Resources Defense Council) http://wwf.panda.org/about_our_earth/about_freshwater/ (World Wide Fund) http://wwf.panda.org/about_our_earth/blue_planet/ (World Wide Fund) http://www.who.int/water_sanitation_health/en/ (World Health Organization) http://environment.nationalgeographic.com/environment/freshwater/about-freshwater-initiative (NG Freshwater Initiative) http://bluegold-worldwaterwars.com/ (Water Preservation Documentury) https://secure.peta.org.uk/ea-action/action?ea.client.id=5&ea.campaign.id=19376&ea.tracking.id=DEVO_FB_Gen (Stop The Seal Slaughter!)

What Is Water Pollution | Chemistry for All | FuseSchool
Learn the basics about water pollution, whilst learning about environmental chemistry. The substances mankind throws away have polluted lakes, rivers and even the oceans. The United Nations estimate that around 10% of the world’s people do not have access to clean drinking water. The main problem with this untreated water is that it can carry diseases, such as cholera, that spread through untreated human faeces. This is particularly serious in shanty towns near big cities and in refugee camps. Rivers and streams can also be polluted with diseases from water coming from badly managed rubbish dumps. But human sewage is not the only substance that pollutes our water supplies – most of the other substances humans allow to escape into streams, rivers and the oceans, are more a danger to natural ecosystems than to us directly. Chemical fertilisers are much more soluble in water than organic, manure-based fertilisers, so heavy rain can wash them into streams and lakes, causing eutrophication. The fertilisers cause algae to grow very fast forming a mat on the lake surface, which blocks sunlight from the vegetation deeper down, which then dies. Bacteria feed off the dying vegetation and use up the remaining oxygen supply. Once the oxygen has gone all animal life dies and the lake ecosystem is destroyed. If heavy metals, such as lead mercury and cadmium, get into rivers and lakes many animals will die. Radioactive waste is normally stored above ground in water tanks, waiting for a more permanent underground storage where it has to be safe for millions of years. There are fears that these underground stores could fail and contaminate water courses. Following a nuclear disaster, water courses and the oceans can become dangerously polluted with radioactive waste. During mining and drilling operations to extract minerals from the earth, aquifers, which are underground water courses, can become polluted. Huge amounts of plastic thrown away from ships, and washed out to sea from rubbish dumps on land, have ended up floating in huge islands of waste causing a serious threat to fish, seabirds and other marine animals. Coal and oil fuelled power stations have been responsible, more so in the past, for causing acid rain. Fossil fuel and nuclear power stations need large amounts of water for condensing the steam which drives their turbines. This water is usually cooled on site in the great cooling towers that dominate the skyline of power-stations. Even so the water will be returned to the river or sea warmer than before. This can upset the river or sea ecosystems. Although not material pollution this waste heat is a pollutant. SUBSCRIBE to the Fuse School YouTube channel for many more educational videos.

Sea Turtle with Straw up its Nostril - "NO" TO PLASTIC STRAWS
This is the original video! Filmed by Christine Figgener, marine biologist at Texas A&M University. ***WARNING: Graphic Content & Inappropiate/ Strong Language!*** This video shows graphically why plastic waste is detrimental to marine life, especially single-use plastics (such as straws, which are one of the most redundant items). This turtle suffers from an item that is human-made and used by most of us frequently. The research team around Christine Figgener (Texas A&M University) found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril and they removed it. SAY "NO" TO PLASTIC STRAWS, AND ANY KIND OF ONE-TIME USE PLASTIC ITEMS! If you would like to support our research and conservation efforts in Costa Rica, please think about donating to our GoFundMe Campaign http://gofundme.com/wuhvd6zj UPDATES The Plastic Pollution Coalition just launched their "No Straw" Campaign in collaboration with us. Take the No-Straw-Pledge and learn more: http://www.plasticpollutioncoalition.... ----- The Story behind the viral video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLN52... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MPHb... OUR STORY: My research team found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril. After initially thinking that we are looking at a parasitic worm, and trying to remove it to identify it, we cut a small piece off to investigate further and finally identified what we were REALLY looking at. After a short debate about what we should do we removed it with the plier of a swiss army knife which was the only tool available on our small boat (not intended for overnight stays), since we were on the ocean, in a developing country, a few hours away from the coast and several hours away from any vet (probably days from any vet specialised in reptiles, not to mention sea turtles) and x-ray machines. Plus, we would have incurred a penalty (up to time in jail) on ourselves by removing the turtle since that is beyond our research permits. He did very obviously not enjoy the procedure very much, but we hope that he is now able to breath more freely. The blood from the shoulder is from a 6mm skin biopsy we took previously to this event for a genetic study (part of our permitted research), which usually doesn't bleed much, but which started bleeding while restraining the turtle. We disinfected the air passageway with iodine and kept the turtle for observation before releasing him back into the wild. The bleeding stopped pretty much immediately after the removal of the straw, and when we released him, he swam happily away. The turtle very likely swallowed the straw while ingesting other food items and then either expelled the straw together with the redundant sea water through her nostrils, or regurgitated the straw and it ended up in the wrong passageway. The nasal cavity of sea turtles is connected directly to the palate (roof of the mouth) by a long nasopharyngeal duct.

Pollution of Ocean Water in South Asia
Free video for http://epSos.de about ocean water pollution in Malaysia. The pollution of ocean water in this environmental video comes form sewerage and dirty roads in Penang. The black water is a result of soot from cars, scooters and motorbikes. The environment is suffering. The tourism is suffering and the local people suffer from high gasoline prices and allergies. People of Malaysia should demand their local governments to improve the sewerage systems and to give subsidies for buying electric scooters, motorcycles and cars. The green environment needs protection, because it is the major reason for the tourists to come from around the world. The swimming and diving on this polluted sea shore beach is very common. The beautiful sunset is not good enough to hide the ugly pollution that is damaging tourism in Malaysia. This cool video of epSos.de is free to use, edit, sell and distribute. Just mention epSos.de and have fun !!!

What is MARINE POLLUTION? What does MARINE POLLUTION mean? MARINE POLLUTION meaning & explanation
What is MARINE POLLUTION? What does MARINE POLLUTION mean? MARINE POLLUTION meaning - MARINE POLLUTION definition - MARINE POLLUTION explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Marine pollution occurs when harmful, or potentially harmful, effects result from the entry into the ocean of chemicals, particles, industrial, agricultural and residential waste, noise, or the spread of invasive organisms. Eighty percent of marine pollution comes from land. Air pollution is also a contributing factor by carrying off pesticides or dirt into the ocean. Land and air pollution have proven to be harmful to marine life and its habitats. The pollution often comes from non point sources such as agricultural runoff, wind-blown debris and dust. Nutrient pollution, a form of water pollution, refers to contamination by excessive inputs of nutrients. It is a primary cause of eutrophication of surface waters, in which excess nutrients, usually nitrogen or phosphorus, stimulate algae growth. Many potentially toxic chemicals adhere to tiny particles which are then taken up by plankton and benthos animals, most of which are either deposit or filter feeders. In this way, the toxins are concentrated upward within ocean food chains. Many particles combine chemically in a manner highly depletive of oxygen, causing estuaries to become anoxic. When pesticides are incorporated into the marine ecosystem, they quickly become absorbed into marine food webs. Once in the food webs, these pesticides can cause mutations, as well as diseases, which can be harmful to humans as well as the entire food web. Toxic metals can also be introduced into marine food webs. These can cause a change to tissue matter, biochemistry, behaviour, reproduction, and suppress growth in marine life. Also, many animal feeds have a high fish meal or fish hydrolysate content. In this way, marine toxins can be transferred to land animals, and appear later in meat and dairy products.

Oil Spills in the Ocean and Oil Pollution
Oil Spills in the Ocean and Oil Pollution - Seas are no longer water!! This video is an introduction on Oil Spills in the ocean, water pollution by ships, oil pollution, its impact, crude oil pollution, skimming and cleaning processes, oil spill and resultant danger in ecosystem and more. You can view complete video of Oil Spills - Seas are no longer water!! on http://www.video.marinebiztv.com/videos.php?video=MjYz&key=search&k=b2lsIHNwaWxscw== Here you will find a darker side of the sea that introduces us to an oily and the most deadly issue, Oil Spill in the ocean. Even during these modern days, when ships are equipped with the advanced technological devices and when in-numerous people depend on coastal areas; oil spill continues to be a major threat to the marine environment. Most man-made oil pollution comes from land-based activities but unfortunately public focuses more on seagoing oil tankers. Heavier crude oil of less toxicity remain on the water surface much longer as oil is lighter than water and does not decompose, as it is also flammable oil spills can usually fuel ocean fires.
