Thousands of Lives Coming to a Premature End

The last moments of thousands of fish in the Gulf of Mexico. They are dying from asphyxiation, due to the depletion of oxygen in the water from the annihilation of phytoplankton from ocean pollution.

This isn’t a singular occurrence, this is happening all over the world! See: https://projectoceanus.wordpress.com/2014/06/13/mass-fish-deaths-millions-have-been-found-dead-all-over-the-world-in-the-past-month/

If our oceans go, we go! Stop polluting our waters!

Tell us what you think.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department says the dead fish began showing up last weekend. Now, the fish litter the shoreline, and the stench fills the air.

“It just stinks really bad,” said Yesenia Compean. “You had to cover your nose when you walk by there.”

Edward Hinojosa and his family spend almost every other weekend in the Kemah area.

“Never seen nothing like that in my life,” said Hinojosa.

Texas Parks and Wildlife says the shad or bait fish are likely showing up dead because of oxygen depletion.

At this time, there are no plans to investigate the fish kill any further. There’s also no word on any plans to clean the fish off the shoreline.

Why States Are Worried About Your Face Wash!


Your face wash may be bad for the environment, and several states are trying to do something about it. The problem is “microbeads,” minuscule pieces of plastic about the size of Abe Lincoln’s eye on a penny, Time reports. They’re found in all kinds of products from the likes of Clean & Clear and Olay, and after traveling down the drain, they land in lakes and oceans. There, experts say, they may collect toxins before they’re eaten by fish—and end up in the food chain. “Big fish eat little fish; eventually the fish is on your dinner plate,” a scientist tells CBS News.”

Researchers haven’t yet determined for sure whether microbeads cause environmental harm. Still, New York, Illinois, California, Ohio, and Minnesota are debating bills to ban the beads. “The fundamental question is going to be: Do we wait to take this material out until we prove that this microbead causes harm?” asks a marine ecologist. If laws are passed against the beads—the New York State Assembly this week voted 108-0 to ban them, Plastics News reports—companies may not put up much of a fight. Johnson & Johnson already plans to get rid of microbeads by 2017, and Procter & Gamble is also moving against the beads.

Plastic ocean pollution is a serious problem. Small plastics are dangerous to all living creatures on this planet, and of course they are also dangerous to humans.
Waste accumulates in the place where they meet the sea currents curving under the influence of Earth’s rotation, creating a huge vortex. Is not it beautiful sea, but a thick soup full of waste. It is a global problem and must also be tackled globally through the UN.
