Conditions of Use
Did you know that many sea animals die because they see a plastic bag and they eat it and choke on it? Well, that is because of pollution. Turtles, for example, think plastic bags are jelly fish and try to eat them. Even factories can pollute our world by dumping down chemicals down lakes, streams, ECT... Did you know that the Nile River is the most polluted river in the world? I think that we should stop polluting water.
In the first place, scientists are polluting water by dumping down chemicals in the oceans. Why?! Instead of dumping it in the ocean, they could go to a special place where they can give it to specialized people, and they can they can break it down without harming our planet, Earth.
Secondly, people dump trash such as soda cans and glass. They could walk to the garbage can and throw it in the garbage can, instead of throwing it in the sea. Sea animals die almost everyday because they see trash in the oceans and they think that it is food; they eat it, choke on it, and die. We are not only harming us humans, we are also harming our animals!
Last but not least, oil dumping. Oil dumping is also very serious to our world. Do you remember the war that happened in Lebanon last summer? The people in Lebanon could not eat fish or go to the ocean to swim for about two years. That was because of water pollution. Mostly, oil dumping occurs in wars.
Water pollution should be stopped ASAP (as soon as possible) because it will make a big impact in the future if it does not stop. I suggest that on Earth Day, schools should make field trips to go to the ocean, and start cleaning up. This is really affecting our world. It is not only affecting one country, instead, it is affecting the world. Everyone can make a difference, if they just try!
