Plastic Ocean

Postby EFFECTIC DESIGNS » May 10th, 2018, 4:02 pm

:shock: :shock:

And yet people are still praising the huge growth of overpopulation in 3rd world countries which does nothing but contribute to more of this trash.

In any event seeing as Trinis are rated the nastiest people in the world what is the PNM doing about our own plastic problem?

Was watching something similar on the BBC. Human kind really effing up. Literally islands of plastic floating around our oceans being consumed, digested and regurgitated by it's inhabitants.... even the birds not safe. We should atleast have shifted to bioplastics and began moving away from plastics made from raw petrochemicals by now?

Scientists have developed a bio degradable hard type plastic .

So soon this problem will be history :D

Went Chacachacare for the first time on a hike last year. One huge part of the coast was pure rubbish, plastic making up the majority of it. Had one point where we literally couldn't see the end of it :| Absolutely disgusting sight on such a beautiful island.

Yes it is an absolute must that we shift to bioplastics, there needs to be some sort of international agreement by the major world powers otherwise at this rate marine life could be endangered in the coming decades for example sea turtles often get plastic fork and straws stuck in their nostrils this happens when they eat the plastic fork or straws and then vomit it back out a lot of times it can go through their nose and become stuck. Even the birds are not safe just imagine that!!!

We should start right here in Trinidad, there needs to be extremely harsh penalties for Trinis who litter and we have to cut own on all this plastic, people buying all this bottled water and are NOT recycling it but quick to litter.

Damn. Beyond sad.

And no doubt these very same cretins will complain vociferously about the character of others. Trini hypocrisy too sweet.

It suddenly hit me 2 days ago while watching a CNN report, just how bad this plastic issue is on Earth.
Like, forget global warming, that's nothing! The planet warms and cools in cycles despite who is on it, and whatever species has to die. The planet recovers and life always adapts.

Plastic is going to be the cause of a mass extinction event in the oceans! Forget even the plastic that we can see and clean up. Right now large plastic is going to be responsible for the extinction of large marine life and seabirds.

But there is now micro and nano plastics that affects cell metabolism that's in the food chain. Plastic "bio-degrades" into little micro flecks, but it doesn't change. It just gets into smaller pieces, but the same polymer chains. It gets into fish and affects reproduction. It gets into plankton! Once plankton is affected, we are talking about mass extinction in the ocean and hence the entire world. Caused by us, man!!! The plastic is in our food supply and water right now! You can't filter these nano-particles.

This is the issue we need to face! Every single one of us is standing on the paleontological brink of the plastic mass extinction event! In 50 million years whoever is here will find a layer of plastic in rocks to explain this event. We really need to do something about this crisis facing our planet. Global warming is a fleeting process compared to this.



One immediate step we can do locally take is to completely ban styrofoam and plastic straws. Styrofoam boxes, packaging, everything with this material, just ban it. Plastic straws are to be replaced with paper ones by McDonald's. A lot of countries and states have done it. We really need to start doing something here.

^ yup I been saying this for a long time, the overpopulation and littering that follows is a greater cause of concern than climate change. We can't stop the earth from cooling or warming it does this every few thousand years or so, but we can stop the plastic pollution. The problem is getting 3rd world countries to acknowledge how serious of a problem it actually is, in the 3rd world people have a tendency to litter and not recycle.

Right in St Helena Junction I telling Goopeesingh for donkey years now to put a barrel or something for people to throw their trash, he never gives a sheit other than to full he pocket. So what happens now is that drain by KFC is filled with endless trash.

What makes matters worse is everybody buying bottled water now and they just tossing away all the empty bottles on the side of the roads or in the drains. Nobody seems to care these days, look at the state this country is in, right by Trincity mall on the western side of the highway look at the grass and you will see endless trash and more trash. I wish they would charge people $10,000 for littering in this place.
