Throwing this dangerous garbage into the deep sea seemed like a reasonable and safe solution. Between the end of World War I and 1975, when the Convention on the Prevention of Marine Pollution by Dumping of Wastes and Other Matter came into force, the militaries of many nations dumped several hundred thousand tons of chemical weapons into various parts of the world's oceans, including some 30 sites off U.S. shores, including the Mid-Atlantic and Hawaii. Since then, these weapons, along with the containers that hold them, have quietly rotted away on the seafloor. What that rotting means for the environment remains unknown.

My Ideas:

Tossing chemical objects into the ocean is hazardous for humans and marine animals.

In the middle of the Pacific Ocean there is a maelstrom of debris twice the size of Texas. It has been affectionately given a variety of clever names: the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, the Sea of Trash, the Eastern Garbage Patch, the Asian Trash Trail and (my personal favorite) the Trash Vortex. It is, in short a spiraling swirl of rushing refuse, mostly of the nonbiodegradable plastic variety: shampoo bottles, grocery bags, disposable razors, toys ... you know, stuff made out of plastic, which unfortunately, means just about everything these days.

My Ideas:

If we dont stop polluting in the ocean, then we wont even have an ocean.

Oil spills
cause huge damage to the marine environment—but in fact are responsible for only around 12% of the oil entering the seas each year. According to a study by the US National Research Council, 36% comes down drains and rivers as waste and runoff from cities and industry.

My Ideas:

If we arent careful with oil then our drinking water will be affected.
