Plankton’s Plastic Soup. Modern Recipe… for a Titanic Disaster.?.

Whilst not strictly Islands,.. YET. Our Garbage and Refuse, mainly PLASTICS… piles up indeed. The nature and direction of Oceanic Currents piles Plastics into… a Titanic pile of water-logged Plastic Soup. Maritime Feeders partake this concoction of our… crappy stuff. Our Sciences scream the Disaster and folly of this… as our Bodies are not… Plastic that is. Nor theirs. Plankton and Plastic… not a good mix indeed it seems. Our World Legends. Bonus Slide-Show and Disaster Music… too. Herein.

Whilst not strictly Islands,.. YET. Our Garbage and Refuse, mainly PLASTICS… piles up indeed. The nature and direction of Oceanic Currents piles Plastics into… a Titanic pile of water-logged Plastic Soup. Maritime Feeders partake this concoction of our… crappy stuff. Our Sciences scream the Disaster and folly of this… as our Bodies are not… Plastic that is. Nor theirs. Plankton and Plastic… not a good mix indeed it seems. Our World Legends. Bonus Slide-Show and Disaster Music… too. Herein.

 

The Eye of a Storm is still… and somewhat calm…

too.

So these Legends… say.

Herein.

Where and when Oceans meet… tis similar it seems.

Whilst without and all around massive Natural Forces play out,..

…and amongst each other… too;..

 

Somewhat energetically… and seemingly chaotically…

…a Soup is made.

Plankton’s Plastic Soup.

Modern Recipe…

…for a Titanic Disaster.?.

…that seems to lurk beneath these waves…

…of our junk.

 

 

PLASTICS… in the main therein.

 

Garbage.

Ours…

 

(…And… NOT THE BAND… either and btw…

which is not… GARBAGE… but is,..

…just called that… that is.)

 

 

GARBAGE… NOT THE BAND.

 

SOUP’s up… and down…

…all around…too.

Sailing Craft and even Maritime Expeditions and Explorations oft followed the Winds.

Hence the term… Trade Winds for example.

 

Ocean Currents are of a similar Nature.

5 Main Meeting Points.

Sub-Tropical.

5 Gyres.

 

5 Large Serves… of Plastic Soup.

Our throw-aways… supposedly convenient.

 

Several more… on the make… too.

Oceans and Waterways have long been used as a dump.

 

Much of our Litter will degrade away… eventually.

Through the various actions of the Sun, Climate, Waters, Time and etc.

Tis also helped along by various species which may be specialised eaters.

 

 

Plastic’s degradation is basically Plastic which becomes smaller pieced.

Nor is it an vital element or natural molecule substance… either.

 

No known Life-form… has however eaten Plastic per se…

…till now in times Modern.

 

Convenient… or not.

 

The Living Organism… We Call… Phytoplankton. A Pic… magnified much.

Plastic… ALL over the World.

 

The Plastics itself too… are just a part of the issue.

ALL Plastics contain Chemicals of some nature.

Not necessarily natural per se.

 

These Chemicals are leached out over actions and time.

Into the Food Chain.

 

Bottom up…

…to us… and beyond indeed.

Plastics and Chemicals cause changes even to such simpler Life-forms as Plankton.

Which many Fish… consume.

 

Behavioural and reproductive changes… also.

Biological Barrier Boundaries… are no longer.

 

Many Chemical Reaction Studies and Reports from a variety of the Sciences include and show:..

…an increased risk for Heart/Cardiovascular disease, Cancers including Breast and Prostate, Reproductive dysfunction effects, Metabolic dysfunction, Diabetes, Miscarriages, Neurological and Behavioral disorders… more… too.

 

The growing health risks of plastic are significantly amplified in…

… our growing children,..

…whose immune and organ systems are still in development…

 

…still… growing.

 

Chemical Concoctions… Consumed.

 

The Processing and Manufacture of Plastic;..

…as well as its eventual throw-away and subsequent destruction by such as incineration or dumping,..

…pollutes our Air, Land and Waters.

 

Convenient… or not.

 

Exposes ALL associated Life-forms to Toxic Chemicals,..

…including Carcinogens to varying degrees.

 

The evidence of Health Risks associated with Plastics is…

…growing indeed,.. in deed and in fact… too.

 

 

Many of Science now get into… the Deep Blue.

The recognition of damage… too readily skimming on the surface.

 

People over Profit… much more profitable… to some.

 

Such recognition… inspires change.

Perhaps… a chance to grow.

 

We can Dream… and still do.

PLANKTON’s…

…Partaking of Plastic Soup.

Crap.

 

A Global Survey which linked Data from around the world Estimates:

275 Million Tons of Plastic Waste.

 

5-13 Million Tons into our Oceans.

 

Life relies on the Food Chain.

Science has delineated 9 such Global Systems of Life Support.

We are not alone… nor are we… convenient.

 

Our actions… matter… in the end.

 

We eat and drink… Life-forms.

Other Species do similar.

Nature provides Life for all environs. Deep Sea Creatures are not to be found above indeed. Join Shiro in a seek and search that dives down deep to bring back… these pics. Deep Sea Creatures. The Slide-shows.

 

Seafood is a large part of many of our diets.

Sea-Salts… too and more do Our Waters provide.

The nutritious value is high… as is demand.

 

Tis said… we are what we eat.

 

The Food Chain.

Wrapped and warped… in Plastic.

 

Modern.

Convenient.

 

Not fit for Consumption.

 

You are… as well. photocredit/thanks:idlehearts

 

Packaging… that is recycled… into Food.

Into… the Food Chain.

We are… what we eat.!. so the Legends say.

 

A throw-away approach.

A small minded approach with NO long-term Benefits,..

… a somewhat… Titanic Disaster it seems;..

 

…’çept for those for choose… PROFIT OVER PEOPLE.

 

Tis time for a change of Diet.

A chance to… clean up our acts;..

…perhaps indeed it seems.

In and out… of Our Deep Wide Blue.

 

So Our World Legends do say.
