Seaweed trawling is illegal in the uk, some countries have even banned all types of seaweed harvesting. The Norwegian state has changed laws and even bent laws to facilitate this industry. The industry is powerful and has many supporters. Our little group has been following this industry for many years and has gathered a large amount of information - here is a very small part. Many Norwegians are distressed that their environment and nature is being destroyed - it is time it stopped - at the end of the video there are protest letters addressed to the Norwegian prime minister.

From the Death of the Great Barrier Reef to the Deadliest Nuclear Accident Ever, these are 9 of the World’s Worst Environmental Disasters 5. Pacific Trash Vortex It’s also known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, it’s located in the northern Pacific Ocean … by some estimates it is thought to be about twice the size of the continental US … and it seems to be getting bigger. It was first described by researchers in 1988, and lies roughly midway between Japan and the West Coast of the US. How did it form? A gyre (guy-err) -- or vortex --is located in the ocean. Its rotational pattern pulls in waste matter from across the northern Pacific Ocean. Floating debris is pushed along by wind-driven surface currents, which steadily push it toward the center of the vortex where it is trapped. The trash can range in size from miniscule pieces of plastic to massive chunks. Experts tell us the majority of waste material comes from the illegal dumping or littering of manufacturing products including plastics. The Trash Vortex can pose a hazard to wildlife and humans. 4. Aral Sea It’s name translates as “Sea of Islands” … that’s a reference to the many islands that once occupied the waters of Uzbekistan. The Aral (air-ul) Sea was actually a huge lake that covered more than 26,000 square miles. It was once teeming with marine life and was a source of bustling trade routes for nearby communities. 3. Not too long ago there were claims that Australia’s Great Barrier Reef was dead. While that’s not exactly true, a new study shows that the natural wonder could be on life support. A 700 mile swath of reefs in the northern section has has lost around 67% of its corals over the past 9 months or so. That’s the largest die-off of corals ever recorded at the Great Barrier Reef, according to experts. The loss of corals is attributed to the effects of coral bleaching. That occurs when ocean temperatures rise and algae is expelled from coral tissue. That also causes a loss of pigmentation, turning the corals stark white or transparent. Bleached corals are weak and less resistant to disease. Unless they’re quickly repopulated, the corals will die. Many scientists think that rising ocean temperatures are a result of climate change. Fertilizer and pesticide runoff also take a toll on the corals. An estimated 93% of the Great Barrier Reef has been affected by the destructive bleaching … and it could take up to 15 years to regain the affected corals. Some experts claim this is Australia’s biggest-ever environmental disaster. 2. Exxon Valdez (val-deez) The Exxon Valdez was an oil tanker enroute to California when it struck Prince William Sound’s Bligh Reef in 1989. Over the next few days up to 38 million gallons of crude oil spilled into the Alaskan waters … resulting in one of the most devastating environmental disasters on record. The area’s remote location made it difficult to construct swift response efforts to the massive spill. The oil eventually polluted some 1,300 miles of coastline and 11,000 sq miles of ocean. Despite massive cleanup efforts, less than 10% of the oil spill was recovered. Impact upon local wildlife was devastating. Among the animals killed were a quarter-million seabirds, 2,800 sea otters, and some 300 harbor seals. Bald eagles, orcas, and an unknown number of salmon perished as well. Around 20 years after the spill, researchers found that species like killer whales still suffered long term losses … and that more than 21,000 gallons of oil still remained on the beaches of Prince William Sound. 1. Chernobyl (shur-noble) The Chernobyl Disaster happened in 1986 in Ukraine (you-krane), then part of the Soviet Union. A combination of inherent design flaws and operator error resulted in what is widely considered history’s worst nuclear power plant disaster, in terms of cost and casualties. A massive steam explosive and graphite fire sent radioactive isotopes into the atmosphere for 9 days. Much of the surface of Europe and the western USSR was contaminated by fallout. Over 200 people suffered acute radiation poisoning, of whom 31 died within a few months. The environmental impact was severe. Radioactive contaminants in rivers weren't expected to completely dissolve for up to 1,000 years. Four square kilometers of pine forest turned reddish brown and died … that area became known as the Red Forest. In the worst hit areas, some animals were born with ghastly mutations, like missing eyes or heads, extra or missing limbs, and deformed skulls.

Here are the 11 worst pollutants and the ones that have the most negative effects on the environment like slag and oil spill disaster. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 5. Slag No, that is not Nickelodeon getting rid of their leftover slime. What’s being dumped is slag. Slag is the leftover materials from ore after the desired material has already been extracted. Slag dumping was generally considered safe until recently. It has even commonly been repurposed for the process of creating cement. However, recent studies reveal that the leftover slag could be producing toxic levels of arsenic, lead, cadmium, barium, zinc and copper. The gradual weathering of the slag can pollute everything surrounding it, including the water and air. This isn’t all slag, though, the harmful effects are mostly caused by slag that is left over from refining copper, zinc, cadmium and other base metals. 4. Untreated Sewage Sewage isn’t really something that most people like to think about, but that doesn’t stop it from being a big problem. The untreated sewage contains human feces and wastewater that, obviously, have some pretty damaging effects. Raw sewage is often dumped into water supplies in poor areas of the world because there isn’t much of an alternative. Besides causing a plethora of dangerous diseases, the waste also destroys ecosystems and lowers the oxygen contents so that no life can survive in the water. The World Health Organization estimates that 2.6 billion people were affected by raw sewage dumping because there was no other way to dispose of it. WHO is making strides in extending access to modern sewage treatment to the communities that most need it. 3. Oil With the highly publicized BP Deepwater Horizon, the oil spill that happened in 2010 and is still affecting the United States and the Gulf of Mexico, the dangers of oil drilling is more well known than ever. The 580 tons of oil that were spilled wasn’t even the biggest oil spill in the world. Not even close. The biggest happened in Kuwait in 1991 when 136,000 tons of oil was spilled. Oil can devastate the local marine life. Oil is especially dangerous to animals with feathers or heavy fur because the oil can insulate them and make them more vulnerable to temperature, especially hypothermia, and reduce their buoyancy. Almost all of the birds affected by oil spills die without human intervention. Some studies say that oil spills are happening less, but that has been disputed. There has still been 9,351 accidental oil spill since 1974 and each one means that the surrounding ecosystem needs decades to recover from the accident. 2. Gold Mining Gold is pretty. It’s the gold standard for jewelry and that pun was most definitely intended. Our country was practically founded because of it. There are two processes for mining the mineral, though, and both are insanely dangerous. The two process are the cyanide process, which is the most common today, and the mercury process. It pretty obvious that with names like that it’s going to be dangerous. Cyanide is incredibly poisonous in tiny quantities and there have been massive cyanide spills throughout time because of the industry. The cyanide leaks have been known to poison fish in local rivers for long stretches. These leaks are considered by many to be massive environmental disasters. There is also a ton of waste produced from the mining. Thirty tons of ore are disposed of for every half pound of gold mined. The ore dumps also have major levels of cadmium, lead, zinc, arsenic, selenium and mercury. The danger of these dumps is second only to the danger of radioactive waste dumps. 1.Radiation Radioactive waste didn’t become a real problem until the birth of the nuclear power plant. Most of the radioactive waste that the world has is caused by nuclear fission or nuclear technology. The waste is maintained by the government, but leaks have been known to happen. The most notable cases of radiation damage can be found in Chernobyl. The leak happened in 1986 and the site still isn’t considered safe. Radiation decays over time, though, so this problem is more manageable than other items on this list. If the radioactive waste is contained for the right amount of time, then it can be more safely disposed of. Without proper containment, though, the radiation can lead to death and various cancers. There are also dangers to future generations as well because it has been documented that radiation can cause severe birth defects.

But in one small part of the sea, water is returning. Latest satellite pictures reveal that 90% of the Aral Sea has dried up, forming a new desert between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan in Central Asia. It's a man-made environmental disaster. As part of the BBC's Richer World Season, Rustam Qobil visits the Aral Sea, a toxic desert sea bed, and talks to people who have lost their sea, health and loved ones.

Seaweed trawling covers the entire Norwegian coast including bird reserves. It causes pollution and the collapse of the seaweed forests as it has before in other countries. Seaweed trawling is illegal in the uk, some countries have even banned all types of seaweed harvesting. The Norwegian state has changed laws and even bent laws to facilitate this industry. The industry is powerful and has many supporters. Our little group has been following this industry for many years and has gathered a large amount of information - here is a very small part. Many Norwegians are distressed that their environment and nature is being destroyed - it is time it stopped - at the end of the video there are protest letters addressed to the Norwegian prime minister.

In capital Freetown the population is rising and new homes spring up daily. But, like the 1950s sewage pipes, the city is creaking under the weight. How long before Freetown cracks? A land of wooded plains and white beaches, Sierra Leone was known as a pearl in the African crown. But the brutal civil war damaged the country’s rural economy and displaced farming families. Now Freetown is expanding rapidly, but few see this as cause for celebration. ‘"Yeah we have come a long way’," says OLU Gorden, a Journalist here. ‘But there has been so much sacrifice for so little ground gained’. In the slums of Kroo Bay in Freetown, children pick their way across rivers of sewage on their way to school. ‘You see children holding onto the filth for support as they climb through’, says Lynette Pamer, a doctor who works in the area. "‘There’s malnutrition because of diarrhoea in the under 5s, malaria, worms. They are all affected’." "The city’'s two dumps are badly located," admits John Kamara of the Ministry of Lands: ‘They are within the city, in water bodies, close to the sea.’ Freetown is engulfed in a tide of pollution that is spreading to the surrounding countryside. ‘"It'’s becoming an environmental disaster’," says one Sierra Leone commentator. ‘In a few years we will see this disaster come to pass’.
