[ Ocean Plastic Expected To Triple Within Decade ]

CNN is reporting the amount of plastic littering the world’s oceans is expected to triple within a decade according to a new UK government report:

The “Foresight Future of the Sea” report from the UK Government Office for Science said our oceans have seen “unprecedented change as a result of direct human activity and climate change.”
It identified the rise of plastic in oceans, along with rising temperatures and sea levels and chemical pollution, as some of the biggest problems the marine environment faces.
The report found that 70% of marine litter is non-degradable plastic which is projected to increase threefold between 2015 and 2025.
