Pollution

The issue of pollution can be overwhelming, linked in every facet of industry and consumerism. As the Great Pacific Garbage Patch grows larger, and Chinese rivers still flow rainbow colors with fabric dyes from the fashion industry, the visible signs of pollution are more than evident.

    The Arctic ice cap melting does not effect the sea level, since that ice is already floating in the water. Put a few ice cubes in a glass of water and let them melt, and you’ll see what I’m saying. Only continental ice melting affects the sea level (i.e. Antarctica, glaciers). The problem with the Arctic ice cap melting is disruption of the deep water sea currents which in turn would effect weather systems. For example, the Golf stream could stop, massively degrading the climate of Europe.
