The Pervasion of Plastics - a Widening Hazard to Marine Environment

A report for the government of the United Kingdom (UK) just identified the pervasion of plastics in the oceans as tripling by 2025 and posing a widening hazard to marine life and the natural environment as whole. 

Titled the "Foresight Future of the Sea", the report by the Office for Science released on Wednesday, declared that the oceans have seen "unprecedented change as a result of direct human activity and climate change".  It identified the rise of plastics in the oceans along with rising temperatures and sea levels and chemical pollution as some of the biggest problems the marine environment faces.

That 70 percent of marine litter as named by the report is now non-degradable plastic, and that these plastics would increase threefold between 2015 and 2025, clearly speaks of the catastrophic environmental hazard humanity faces from dumping plastics in the seas.

Explicit video documentation and scientific research have recently shown alarming amounts of plastics in large swaths of the world's oceans. Plastics within the systems of sea birds and fish-life further compounds the gravity of the impact of pollution on the marine environment. 

Therefore,  in order to do a better job to protecting the environment, it becomes vital for all nations to implement better usage and recycling methods for plastics.
