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....

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 ...
Tweet this video! - http://clicktotweet.com/c5y3L Our environment has been the victim of all sorts of attacks. Some of these attacks are natural such as hurricanes and earthquakes. However, there are attacks that are unnatural and man made such as wars, explosions, chemical spills, etc. These attacks usually carry with them heavy price tags as property and lives are damaged beyond full compensation and repair. To see these effects first hand (or as close to first hand as possible) we present to you our 25 biggest environmental disasters of history list for your personal edification. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the text version too! - http://list25.com/25-biggest-man-made-environmental-disasters-in-history/ Here's a preview: TV...
Subscribe to BBC News www.youtube.com/bbcnews It took just 40 years for the Aral Sea to dry up. Fishing ports suddenly found themselves in a desert. 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.

Arsenic and mercury have polluted the Rio Doce river in Brazil after a damn burst at an iron mine. According to tests by their state water agency, the environmental disaster if the nation's worst-ever. Their Institute for Water Management found arsenic levels more than ten times above the legal limit at one place in the river. The dam which burst also killed at least 13 people on Nov. 5 as thick mud flooded across two states. Mercury rose slightly above permitted levels as well. Between Nov. 7 and the 12th, the institute found seven additional places along the Rio Doce where arsenic has accumulated to unacceptable levels. The Rio Doce stretches across 500 miles from the mineral-rich state of Minas Gerais to Espirito Santo on the Atlantic coast. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews...

The central coast of Vietnam is home to historical sites and long shorelines of sandy beaches hugging blue waters. It boasts a thriving tourist and fishing industry. But this scenery has changed. Beginning early April 2016, local farmers in Ha Tinh, a province north of Hue, found their fish killed, and dead fish washed ashore. Residents reported tons of dead marine life appearing on the beaches of several other provinces in Vietnam. The environmental damage is severe. Locals who depend on the sea currently cannot fish for food or sell seafood to make a living. Speculation was rampant. Scientists said only chemical pollution could cause such a massive amount of fish kills in a short amount of time. Tests performed by environmental experts showed that the water contained pollutants -...

On November 5, 2015, two dams holding millions of cubic meters of mining waste gave way – launching one of the worst environmental disasters in Brazilian history. Mud – full of dangerous metals – quickly overtook the nearby mining community of Mariana in Minas Gerais state. At least seventeen people were killed. Hundreds more have been displaced by the wall of sludge released in the dam collapse. Music: Echoes of Time by Kevin MacLeod
https://democracynow.org - Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico Wednesday as a Category 4 storm, bringing record rainfall and catastrophic flooding, destroying power lines and leaving the entire country in the dark. This comes as many homes on Puerto Rico were still dark two weeks after Hurricane Irma cut electricity to hundreds of thousands. The storm also raised concerns about potential environmental disasters. Puerto Rico is home to 23 Superfund sites, including on the island of Vieques, site of a former U.S. naval test range, which took a near-direct hit from the storm. It is also the site of a coal-fired power plant owned by the private company AES. Residents across the island have been demanding the plant be closed and that the company stop dumping toxic coal ash into their c...
Every day there are dying out
Some species of animals and plants.
Stop the environmental disaster,
Only now we have a chance.
Threatened creatures, dirty seas,
Polluted atmosphere, dying trees.
Every day we are destroying
A part of this beautiful nature.
Stop the ecocide now,
Or we will have no future.
We invest millions of dollars
In science and mars exploration,
That we can leave this planet
When it is finally destroyed.
Use the money for saving the environment,
This would be thousand times more efficient!
Threatened creatures, dirty seas,
Polluted atmosphere, dying trees.
Stop the insanity! - stop the ecocide!
