Waste could be released into world's oceans as world warms.

 

Humans produced nearly 300 million tons of plastic in 2012, but where does it end up? A new study has found plastic debris in a surprising location: trapped in Arctic sea ice. As the ice melts, it could release a flood of floating plastic onto the world.

SURIGAO CITY (MindaNews/23 May) – Hunting of sharks has continued in the waters off Surigao City and Surigao del Norte and even in neighboring areas despite calls by conservation groups… (Shark catching thrives in Surigao, #Philippines
Marian Locksley's insight:

In Siargao Island, several fishermen catch both big and small sharks also for their highly priced fins. Fins which buyers won’t buy for their small size are being dried or eaten as “kinilaw” (raw fish mixed with vinegar and spices).

Local buyers would prefer sun-dried fins.



...said there has been “no national regulation to protect the species 13 years after the enactment of RA (Republic Act) 9147 and 15 years after RA 8550.”

RA 9147 is known as the Wildlife Conservation and Protection Act, while RA 8550 is known as the Philippine Fisheries Code of 1998.

 

The International Union for Conservation Nature Red List attributes the sharp decline of the shark population primarily to “fisheries over-exploitation, as sharks are caught as targeted and accidental catches in many different fishing gears, including gill nets, purse seines, longlines and trawls, and from small artisanal boats to giant industrial vessels.”



“Removing sharks can destabilize the food web and have widespread negative ecological impacts on community structure and function. Indeed, declining shark populations are already resulting in disrupted marine ecosystems around the globe,” it added.(Roel N. Catoto/MindaNews)

The Water Challange - Why Desalination Technology Deserves your Vote International Environmental Technology Yet, in arid countries around the world, where conventional water resources are scarce, impaired-quality (non-conventional) water sources...
Marian Locksley's insight:

Areas affected by acute water shortage are often in the poorest, most underdeveloped countries, which lack the necessary power and water-delivery infrastructures. The lack of clean water also creates considerable health, energy and economic challenges to the populations of these countries. Because of a growing population and climate change,  water shortages will eventually limit economic growth and food supplies.  The provision of clean water therefore represents one of the most pressing challenges of the 21st century. - See more at: http://www.envirotech-online.com/news/water-wastewater/9/nesta/the_water_challange_-_why_desalination_technology_deserves_your_vote/30225/#sthash.Kul35c4N.dpuf
