Plastic island: How our throwaway culture is turning paradise into a graveyard
Summary: Right now there millions of trash laying on the the midway beaches. Midway is one of the most remote places on the planet but one of the hardest hits by pollution. Most of this trash comes from America and China. The biggest garbage patch in the world is The North Pacific gyre. The trash you find on the beach is incredible.they say by 2050 there would be more trash in the ocean then there are fish. How could we let Society get this way? None of the trash was used or brought here, it floted. The thing is that they never stop cleaning up there, it's just that the trash keeps on coming. This is very dangerous to the local sea animals and birds.the birds mistake the trash as fish and feed it to their young. The baby's stomachs can't digest the plastic so the died and get mixed up with the trash that killed them. How could we be so selfish and not care about trash when that garbage is killing our animals? How could we do that to them?
Connection: this connects to World War II because when the soldiers needed food they encourage the American people to salvage their food. This connects because the soldiers needed food so therefore American people took action and now the birds and the only way for them to get food it's for humans to stop pollution.
Questions: what way do you think that will help with pollution? Do you believe we should encourage not to used products such as styrofoam or plastic? What do you think would happen in the future if we keep on doing what we are doing?
