What should we do about ocean pollution?
Ocean pollution affects many organisms and many ecosystems. It affects marine life and even life on land. Ocean pollution can and will get worse if we do not address it now.
Dear Future President,
I have a few issues that I would like to discuss and actually try to change. These topics are dear to me and affect me in many ways. I am interested in ocean life and I do want to study about it when I am older. Ocean pollution is a topic that I want to talk about.
Eighty percent of pollution to the marine environment comes from the land. Which means we are the problem in this situation. This means if we are the problem then we should be able to fix the problem that is occurring. I feel as if we caused the problem and it affected things in a bad way, we should be responsible for repairing it.
People dump harmful chemicals, trash, and other waste into the ocean. Because of that, many ecosystems and certain animal have died or gone extinct. Such as, different species of aquatic animals and certain species of coral and seaweed. If we do not address this now it may become an even bigger problem in the future.
Ocean pollution doesn't just affect ocean and marine life, it also affects land animals. If trash and harsh chemicals wash up on land it can affect many different animal. It can even affect plants that are land because the sand or dirt can contain harsh chemicals. This can affect trees and other plants. Another scenario that could happen would be birds. Birds do not know the difference between good and bad. They could carry trash and other waste further onto land and that could even affect humans. It just goes around in a big circle.
Other people might not have the same opinion as me, but I am staying beside what I say . This is that ocean pollution is wrong. Other people might think that it is a good idea for it to continue. If we put it to a halt, we will not have somewhere to dump waste and the land will get dirtier. In my opinion I think that the ocean shouldn't suffer because we dump trash into their home. It's even worse because the animals and ocean life cannot do anything to help their situation.
In conclusion, we should stop dumping things into the ocean. Just help the ocean life and not make it worse. Like I said , they can't do anything to help it so we should. Plus we are the ones making it happen and it might become a harsher situation. We should be responsible for cleaning it out and stop dumping just to make it all come to a stop.
