It threatens the health, humans, plants, and animals. All water pollution is dangerous to the health of living organisms, but sea and river pollution can be especially harmful to the health of humans and animals. Rivers and seas are used as main sources of potable water by populations all over the world. Another serious result of this pollution is the effect of this pollution on trade in the polluted areas. This research studies cases which reflect different causes of sea and river pollution, how serious the pollution is and the effect of this pollution on trade, and the possible solutions applied by people and governments to this problem.
We see pollution and know that’s what it is. The thing they don’t know is what kind it is and that’s what people need to know. What the cause of pollution is so then next time they might be able to stop is from ever happening. Toxic Substances are a chemical pollutant that is not a naturally occurring substance in an aquatic ecosystem. Theses kinds of things come from plants that have a drainage system that runs off into the water and they dumb the things that they won’t need anymore.
Small prey eat the plastic, then predators eat the prey and the plastic is consumed and the predator might die. Ocean pollution hurts both land and ocean, it hurts them by ruining the animal's habitat and it might ruin more important things. If we trash more and more we might not eat fish because the fishes might eat the plastic then they might die and if we pollute more the population of fish will get smaller. Help the ocean by recycling and not using a lot of trash because if you keep throwing trash then we might live in trash. About 85% of the world's oceans have
The contamination can cause many animals to die or become ill, unique species will more than likely not be identified, people will be deprived the right to see the unique animals live and swim freely, and the water will not be fresh so many people may become sick as well if they were to breathe in or otherwise make contact with the toxic chemicals. Russians appreciate and value Lake Baikal but there seems to be little progress made toward figuring out a solution that will eliminate or even decrease the environmental issue the lake is facing. Still, Russians have yet to give up they are still trying to figure out and come up with a way to stop this issue. However, most solutions require money enormous amounts of money.

It’s dangerous that trash is out there just like nothing. We as individuals can also stop it by telling our friends and family. If anyone sees trash by them they should take it out. Just don’t ... ... middle of paper ... ...ic and get ill from it. All this trash can kill the mammals in the ocean even if it’s just floating on top of the water.
First, consequentialism looks at the result of an action in determining if a decision is ethical (Lightle, Susan). By dumping the toxic waste, the creek became void of life (Hardrock Case). That area can no longer support wildlife, including any fish that lived in that creek. The creek also spills into the Mahoning River so the toxic waste also affects any areas along the river’s path. Since the action leads to a negative result, the dumping of the waste was an unethical decision.
In To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus Finch says, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view…until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (39). People often fail to examine a situation from someone else view because their opinions are biased. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee shows readers how prejudice causes people to believe in rumors, judge others by their race, and deem the beliefs of others unacceptable. One form of prejudice is rumors, it can cause harm to that individual who is being targeted. Rumors can easily hide the truth about that person’s personality because they are basically lies, opinions, and incorrect observations about the individual.
Aquatic species are having these chemicals and debris forced upon them against their will. As stated in the article “Combined Sewer Overflows” the treatment plants cannot handle the income of water and the trash in it, so they push the water and the trash out into the ocean (“Combined Sewer Overflows”). Because humans are not able to handle the event aquatic species are being tangled up in or choking on all the garbage and trash from humans. Oil spills are another case were animals are the victims of human actions. "As little as one part of oil per million parts of water can be detrimental to the reproduction and growth of fish, crustaceans, and plankton” (“Threats to Aquatic Environments”).
