Plastics; Oceans and Enemies of the Sea ~ Fakir Yazar Blog Entries

Oceans and seas provide everything we need: Food, oxygen, inspiration and many jobs. They also organize the climate. Despite its vital importance, we are now turning our oceans and seas into an enormous garbage. This dump continues to grow every minute of the past. The only good thing here is that this problem can be solved if it is desired.

In the mids of a whale landing on the island of Sotra in Norway, there are 30 plastics, as well as a plethora of plastics. Unfortunately these problems are not new. The plastic pollution of the ocean was documented by researchers until the 1970s. In 2017, this problem began to be taken seriously. The plastic problem is now big enough to be seen on the beaches around the world. Approximately 8 million tons of plastic are being thrown into the oceans and seas every year The once praised product has become one of the fastest growing environmental problems in the world . 8 million tons of plastic is almost equal to the weight of the entire population of Spain and the United Kingdom.

8 Basic Steps to Solve this Environmental Problem

  • We Must Reduce Our Plastic Addiction

We use disposable plastic products such as pipettes, plastic bags, packaging, plastic cups, plates and cutlery at an incredible amount. We must put an end to this. An increasing number of countries have now banned disposable plastic and plastic bags or have set concrete targets for reducing plastic consumption and waste. This effort should be scaled to reduce global plastic consumption. ” width=”500″ height=”300″ />

Increasing Plastic Generation Issue
  • In the past 50 years, world plastic production has doubled and leading plastics producers have been able to reduce their dependence on plastics in the next five years

     they plan to increase production by about three times a year. <span style= In 1974, per capita consumption of plastic was 2 kg. Today, it rose to 43 kg. This leads the world in the wrong direction. Instead, alternatives to non-degradable plastics should be developed.

    • Wages and Taxes on Pollutant Plastics Increased

    Most of the plastics used today are made from petroleum and are a source of pollution. For example, in Norway only 0.5 percent of the plastic can be renewed. Despite this, fossil plastic is preferred because it is cheaper than renewable plastics. Governments should investigate the tax or charge on polluting plastics.

    • Waste Management Should Be Increased in Highest Places of Concern

    Most of plastic waste comes from developing countries. Rapid population growth and a bulging middle class mean that plastic consumption increases faster than the plastic waste's overhead capacity, which is why most of the excess goes to the sea. China and Indonesia are among the countries that produce the most plastic waste. As part of the solution, an international aid program should be established to improve waste management and recycling infrastructure.

      There is still much we do not know about the plastic problem. Researchers indicate that more than 70 percent of the plastics are at sea bottom. In time, we are divided into small particles, but we do not know what this material is or how to get rid of it. In addition to mapping and monitoring efforts, research on adverse effects should be strengthened. An important initiative in this direction is REV the world's largest research and exploration vessel, aiming to solve the greatest challenges of the ocean, including a special effort on plastic.
