What are the plastic islands? Where are them and how many are there in the ocean? Why can’t we see them by Google Earth? Is it possible to walk on them? Is it true that in 2050 we’ll eat more plastic than fishes? There are lots of fake news about plastic island, but we need to be aware of the problem, which is serious and has many consequences even on our food chain.
What can we do to preserve the oceanic environment? What can we do to prevent or reduce marine pollution? Eleonora Polo explains with data, examples and a lot of striking stories everything we need to know about marine pollution, demolishing fake news with the truth of science.
