The end is near: Chemical pollution of the planet has reached a critical point

(ORDO NEWS) — The chemical pollution of the planet has reached a level that threatens the systems of the Earth, destroying the biological and physical processes that underlie all life.

Scientists report that the level of chemical pollution of our planet has crossed the “red line” – it has reached a critical level at which many of the biological and physical processes of the Earth are at risk. The level of pollution threatens the existing stability of the planet’s global ecosystems.

Of greatest concern is the global spread of plastic, the natural decomposition of which, according to various sources, takes from 400 to 700 years. At the same time, the product of the oil industry is found in every, even the most remote corner of the Earth.

In addition, 350,000 different synthetic chemicals are of particular concern, including pesticides, industrial wastes and antibiotics. All these products of human activity cause great harm to the ecology of the planet.

According to studies, chemical pollution has already crossed the critical line, beyond which anthropogenic changes on Earth will lead the planet out of a stable ecological situation.
