Scientists discover plastic chunks in Arctic ice 25.9.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Scientists have discovered sizable chunks of plastic near the North Pole, raising fears that melting ice will allow more of the material to be released into the Arctic Ocean - with detremental effects on wildlife. A team of scientists drawn from the US, Norway and Hong Kong and headed by marine biologist Tim Gordon of Exeter University in the UK found polystyrene chunks 1,609 kilometers from the North Pole in the area that was previously inaccessible because of sea ice. They found two large pieces on the edge of ice flows between 77 degree and 80 degree north, in the middle of the international waters of the central Arctic Ocean. It is one of the most northerly sightings of such debris in the world's oceans, which are increasingly polluted by plastics and confirm just how far plastic pollution has spread, 'The Guradian' reported. The finding has prompted fears that as the ice melts, because of climate change, plastic that has long been trapped in it is flowing into the Arctic.

If you are one of the residents who has complained about the BMC's water supply being contaminated, think again. According to the civic body's latest Environment Status Report (ESR) 2016-17, only three percent of the collected samples from all 24 administrative wards and 27 service reservoirs was found unfit for consumption.

The report says that the R-South ward of Kandivli supplied the cleanest water during this period, as no contamination was found in the water samples analysed. Ironically, the maximum contamination, standing at nine percent, was in the upmarket A-ward which comprises Colaba, Churchgate and CST.
