Marine pollution : what everyone needs to know / by Weis, Judith S.,1941-;
Includes bibliographical references and index.Introduction to the marine environment and pollution -- Nutrients -- Marine debris -- Oil and related chemicals -- Metals -- Pesticides and industrial organic chemicals -- Emerging concerns -- Bioaccumulation and biomagnification -- Climate change and ocean acidification -- Biological pollution -- Regulating and reducing pollution."Marine pollution occurs today in varied forms--chemical, industrial, and agricultural--and the sources of pollution are endless. In recent history, we've seen oil spills, untreated sewage, eutrophication, invasive species, heavy metals, acidification, radioactive substances, marine litter, and overfishing, among other significant problems. Though marine pollution has long been a topic of concern, it has very recently exploded in environmental, economic, and political debate circles; scientists and non-scientists alike continue to be shocked and dismayed at the sheer diversity of water pollutants and the many ways they can come to harm our environment and our bodies. In Marine Pollution: What Everyone Needs to Know, Judith Weis covers marine pollution from numerous angles, each fascinating in its own right. Beginning with its sources and history, she discusses common pollutants, why they are harmful, why they cause controversy, and how we can prevent them from destroying our aquatic ecosystems. Questions ask what actually happened with the Exxon Valdez, and why harmful algal blooms are a serious concern. Covering pollutants that are only now surfacing as major threats, such as pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and metal nanoparticles, she explains how these can begin in the water and progress up the food chain to emerge in human bodies. Looking at the effects of climate change and acidification on marine pollution levels, we learn how we can begin to reduce pollution at the local and global levels."--Publisher description.

The rime of the modern mariner / by Hayes, Nick(Illustrator); Coleridge, Samuel Taylor,1772-1834.Rime of the ancient mariner.;
A mariner appears on a park bench and begins his tale. Cursed by an albatross he slew whilst hunting whales, the mariner and his crew find themselves stranded within the North Pacific Garbage Patch: a vast, hypoxic, slow-whirling maelstrom of plastic waste; a hidden repository for the world's litter. Along the way, he meets various characters of our current environmental tragedy: a lady made of oil, a deserted ghost-ship drilling barge, a 2-inch salp (the human race's oceanic ancestor), a blue whale and a hermit. Nostradamus, Cassandra, Medusa, Poseidon, Thor, Gaia, Al-Javari, Mephistopheles and a buzzard also make cameo appearances.

Plastic soup : an atlas of ocean pollution / by Roscam Abbing, Michiel.; Tessera Translations,translator.;
Plastics have transformed every aspect of our lives. Yet the very properties that make them attractive - they are cheap to make, light, and durable - spell disaster when trash makes its way into the environment. Plastic Soup: An Atlas of Ocean Pollution is a beautifully-illustrated survey of the plastics clogging our seas, their impacts on wildlife and people around the world, and inspirational initiatives designed to tackle the problem. In Plastic Soup, Michiel Roscam Abbing of the Plastic Soup Foundation reveals the scope of the issue: plastic trash now lurks on every corner of the planet. With striking photography and graphics, Plastic Soup brings this challenge to brilliant life for readers. Yet it also sends a message of hope; although the scale of the problem is massive, so is the dedication of activists working to check it. Plastic Soup highlights a diverse array of projects to curb plastic waste and raise awareness, from plastic-free grocery stores to innovative laws and art installations. According to some estimates, if we continue on our current path, the oceans will contain more plastic than fish by the year 2050. Created to inform and inspire readers, Plastic Soup is a critical tool in the fight to reverse this trend.

Marine biology : a very short introduction / by Mladenov, Philip V.,;
Includes bibliographical references and index.The marine environment -- Marine biological processes -- Life in the coastal ocean -- Polar marine biology -- Marine life in the tropics -- Deep-ocean biology -- Intertidal life -- Food from the oceans.The marine environment is the largest, most important, and yet most mysterious habitat on our planet. It contains more than 99% of the world's living space, produces half of its oxygen, plays a critical role in regulating its climate, and supports a remarkably diverse and exquisitely adapted array of life forms, from microscopic viruses, bacteria, and plankton to the largest existing animals. In this unique Very Short Introduction, biologist Philip Mladenov provides a comprehensive overview of marine biology, offering a tour of marine life and marine processes that ranges from the polar oceans to tropical coral reefs, and from shoreline mollusks to deep-sea hydrothermal vents. Mladenov also looks at a number of factors that pose a significant threat to the marine environment and to many of its life forms-threats such as overfishing, coastal development, plastic pollution, oil spills, nutrient pollution, the spread of exotic species, and the emission of climate changing greenhouse gases. Throughout the book he successfully weaves around the principles of marine biology a discussion of the human impacts on the oceans and the threats these pose to our welfare.

Plastics and microplastics : a reference handbook / by Newton, David E.,author.;
Beginning with a history of plastic—from the first scientific discovery of the material to its diversity of forms and uses in the present day—Plastics and Microplastics: A Reference Handbook discusses the history and evolution of plastic and its many uses, both in the United States and around the world. Importantly, it delves into the problems and controversies concerning plastic and microplastics, such as the pollution of oceans, rivers, and streams; its exceptionally long shelf life; its contribution to air pollution; and ingestion of microplastics by marine life.One of the most valuable aspects of the book is its survey of the history of plastics and microplastics conducted in a manner that helps readers to identify key issues to address. Moreover, it discusses both implemented and proposed solutions. A perspectives chapter includes a broad range of voices, allowing crucial, diverse perspectives to round out the author's expertise. -- provided by publisher.Description based on print version record.Electronic reproduction.

Yes, there are alternatives to plastic : returning planet plastic to planet Earth / by Adams, Jane Stewart;
The world is rebelling against plastic! We can turn Planet Plastic back in to Planet Earth if we all pull together. If we want to survive as a species and allow our natural world to thrive alongside us, we must go through some of the biggest challenges and changes in the history of mankind. Our precious oceans can't take any more rubbish and definitely not more toxic plastic that is endangering and killing life everywhere! We need to know what it is doing to our world right now to stop its apocalyptic onslaught. The ultimate solution to the global plastic crisis is to stop making plastic in its many forms. Natural and sustainable alternatives must be used in order to protect the world from this scourge of the age. We can all do something today to reduce our reliance on plastic. The handy 'Swaps' section of this book will help you to rethink the plastic you use and to find your own way through this mine field. Most of the more unusual items mentioned in the book can be purchased in Plastic Free/Zero Waste shops or online. We all have our part to play. Are you ready? All hands on deck for this war! A healthy and thriving planet for all life OR polluted plastic nightmare of global proportions...It's entirely our choice!Introduction -- Chapter One Memories of life before plastic -- Chapter Two Plastic, a global problem -- Chapter Three Plastic inside us -- Chapter Four Plastic free? -- Chapter Five Land matters -- Chapter Six Learning from the past -- Chapter Seven General advice -- Chapter Eight Consigning petrochemical plastic to history -- Chapter Nine What should we recycle? -- Chapter Ten Let's end single use plastic! -- Swaps thinking planet first, not plastic -- Last thoughts -- What a plastic-free world would look like -- Games to raise awareness -- Setting up an alternatives to plastic demo table -- Recommended organizations/websites and books.
