Earth’s pollution has reached a new milestone as it is now affecting its Geological conditions, sparking new alarms.
Molten plastic mingled with rocks on the island, 1,140 kilometers (708 miles) from the southeastern state of Espirito Santo, in what researchers say is evidence of increasing human influence on Earth’s geological cycles bigger.
said Fernanda Avelar Santos, a geologist at the Federal University of Parana. They consist of a mixture of sediment particles and other debris held together by plastic.
“We found (pollution) mainly from fishing nets, which are very common debris on Trinidad Chase,” Santos said. “[Fishing nets] get carried away by ocean currents and build up on the beach. As the temperature rises, this plastic melts and becomes embedded in the natural material of the beach.”
Trindade is one of the most important islands in the world A green turtle sanctuary or Chelonia mydas, thousands of turtles come to lay their eggs every year. The only human inhabitants of Trindade are members of the Brazilian Navy, who maintain a base on the island, and nesting turtles protect the green turtles’ nesting grounds,” Santos said.
The discovery sparked To humans on Earth, Santos said. Planets are defined by the geological record.”
