UNDP Restoring the Danube River and Black Sea
 
06:57
The most international river basin in the world, the Danube River basin, includes territories of 19 countries. Over the past 150 years, agricultural, industrial and municipal pollution severely damaged the ecosystems in the basin and the quality and quantity of water. The impact on the environment was so massive that a 'dead zone' caused by oxygen depletion formed in the western part of the Black Sea. An international plan, with support of UNDP, helped to restore the river basin and revive the Black Sea ecosystem upon which millions depend for their livelihoods. UNDP identified the major sources of pollution, developed an investment strategy and strengthened institutions that govern the Danube River basin. The UNDP-GEF 49,5 million USD programme helped to catalyze 3,5 billion USD investments into reforms of governing institutions and systems, and into new agricultural and industrial practices. As a result, an effective trans-boundary waters management programme was implemented during the 1990's. The strategic plan and incoming funding enabled the countries along the Danube to monitor and improve water quality and quantity by establishing 75 water quality monitoring stations throughout the basin. With the support of the programme, the governments instituted a damage control system to minimize accidental chemical spills and agreed to reduce nutrient pollution. Through these reforms and investments, industrial, municipal and agricultural pollution was reduced, virtually eliminating the dead zone in the Black Sea and leading to a significant eco-system recovery. UNDP works with over 100 countries to modify agriculture, industry, mining, fishing and wastewater management to lessen ecological damage to the water systems. In this way, conflicts can be prevented, security and livelihoods improved, habitats protected and health risks minimized.

Faecal pollution rife along Lebanese coast
 
04:26
(5 Jul 2016) LEAD IN: Summer season just started and beaches are already packed. But swimmers may end up cooling themselves in very polluted water this year. The National Centre for Marine Sciences has released a study after seawater samples were taken in areas around popular Lebanese beaches. STORY-LINE As days are getting hotter, seawater becomes more alluring. Waves crash against the rocks. But how clean is that water? In Batroun, the National Centre for Marine Sciences faces a vast stretch of clear blue sea. For more than 30 years, its main programme has consisted of monitoring Lebanese coastal water. Three main reasons are responsible for water pollution in Lebanon: dump sites located on the coastline, chemical pollution produced by industries, and sewage water flowing into the sea. The last one is the dominant reason, but the danger is invisible - unless you are a scientist specialising in water quality. In their laboratories, scientists from the National Centre for Marine Sciences analyse seawater samples collected from 30 different points on the shores of Lebanon. The seawater is filtered according to the membrane filtration technique in order to collect certain bacteria. "Two types of bacteria are used as indicators of faecal contamination originating from sewage outfalls, domestic pollution: faecal coliform and faecal streptococci," explains Doria Saba, who studies the quality of coastal seawater in northern Lebanon. According to the scientists of the National Centre for Marine Sciences, the acceptable rate of these two bacteria for people in contact with the water is 100 UFC (faecal coliform unit) per 100 millilitres. At Beirut public beach Ramlet el-Baida, the rate skyrockets at about 30,000 UFC. It also reaches 15,000 in the Tripoli area. "In Lebanon, 80 percent of our waste water goes inside Lebanon in the rivers, on the coastline that goes directly to the sea. says Gaby Khalaf, director of the National Centre for Marine Sciences. "Because we don't have a treatment plant for recycle of the waste water." The National Centre for Marine Sciences recently released its updated map of water pollution on the Lebanese coastline, ranking the main beaches of Lebanon according to their pollution level. The map targets tourists who risk contamination by polluted water. The northern part of the Lebanese coastline is mostly polluted because a coastal stream in the Mediterranean sea carries polluted water from the Beirut area. Byblos is among the few exceptions and its public beach is packed on a very hot Sunday. "We can't always stop going to the sea because of pollution. We try to find shores that are clean at least in appearance," explains Manal Ayoub, who came from Batroun with her three children. "For example, this is a shore that has been recently cleaned. It is visitor friendly and appears to be clean, but we can never know what is in the sea. We do know however that all the sewage in the city is deposited in the sea, but so far this doesn't seem to be the case here." In fact, according to the samples analysed by the National Centre for Marine Sciences, the rate of faecal coliform units in the Byblos area is only between 15 and 20 per 100 millilitres. But Manal Ayoub watches carefully her children when they go swimming. "Now, I always try my best not to let them swallow water," explains the mother of three. "But I also want to let them have fun. I try my best, that's all I can do in the end." The scientists of the National Centre for Marine Sciences are calling for the construction of new waste water treatment stations along the Lebanese coastline.

Project tackles plastic pollution
 
05:42
(1 Oct 2016) LEAD IN Discarded plastic is a growing problem posing a threat to wildlife around the Black Sea coast. Volunteers were recently drafted in to collect the waste while raising awareness of what harm can be done by the plastic often found buried in the sand. STORY-LINE: The natural beauty of the Black Sea. "Biloberezhya Svyatoslava" is designated a national nature park, but this haven for wildlife is marred by plastic pollution. A group of volunteers and scientists recenty travelled to the Ukrainian shores of the Black Sea to help tackle the problem, as part of a project organised by the United Nations Development Program. The clean beach program of UNDP aims to raise awareness of the dangers of tiny pieces of plastic on marine life which consume it. Vladimir Mamayev is the regional technical adviser for UNDP. "This is one of the most dangerous things - plastic in the sea. Now it a global program of action to support of the United Nations environmental program to deal with this. The plastic can live up to 100 more years in the water. All the animals and all the species living in the marine sea are suffering differently, but they are all suffering. So it is very important for the human population first of all to change the habits. We need to get rid of the plastic, we should not bring the plastic into the nature at all. Collecting is very important, is very good. But not polluting, is most important." The team scour the beaches collecting discarded plastic bottles, fragments of fishing nets and other waste. Over several hours they gathered 25 kilograms of different sorts of plastic and non-organic garbage. Dr. Boris Oleksandrov is the Director of the Institute of Marine Biology of the Ukraine's National Scientists Academy. "The waste could be of different types. The most dangerous is the unseen waste, that which we cannot see. There is a very important problem of the small waste which could kill huge populations of fishes. Developing a program for the waste pollution we are discovering every day how this waste is dangerous for marine life. " Another group of volunteers and scientists inspected seashells, which are considered to be good indicators to the biological health of the beach. The region is an important migratory path for millions of birds making their way south for the winter. White Pelicans are often spotted here and White-tailed Eagles spend the winter here. The migrating birds need to eat enough before flying over the Black Sea for their next stop in Turkey. To replish the fish population 3000 carps were released into the Dnipro-Bug estuary. Yuriy Kozunovski is director for the national reservation "Biloberezhya Svyatoslava": "Most of the natural breeding grounds are destroyed in the Dnipro-Bugsky lagoon (delta of Dnipro river and Bug river), that's why breeding stock production decreased. Also a number of pelicans and other birds which are feeding on the fish increased. The pressure on natural fish reserves also rises, but from another side we need to support bird populations that are on the Red list (IUCN) : pelicans and others. Breeding fishes will help to increase the fish population and provide food for such rare birds on our territory." The team hope that when the birds embark on their return journey next spring there will be plenty of fish for them to feast on. This recent event was held as part of International Black Sea Clean Beach Days, which took place in various Black Sea countries in September 2016 within the framework of the project "Improving Environmental Monitoring in the Black Sea" (EMBLAS). The project is jointly funded by The European Union and the UNDP.

Plastic pollution: Sea salt found to contain microplastics - TomoNews
 
06:15
MALAYSIA — Karmic justice comes swift with Mother Nature, as plastic waste we’ve been throwing in the ocean is now coming back to us, literally, via the food we eat. Microplastic particles typically flow into the ocean, since they're often too small to be filtered out by sewage treatment plants. The tiny pieces of plastic are mistaken for food and ingested by fish and other sea creatures. Seafood meant for human consumption often contain these particles. And new study published in Scientific Reports now shows that salt may also be a vehicle for plastic contamination. Researchers studied 16 brands of sea salt extracted from eight different countries: Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Japan, Iran, South Africa, France, and Portugal. After dissolving and filtering the salts in their lab at the Universiti Putra Malaysia, they found that nearly all were contaminated with foreign particles, with the exception of the one from France. All in all, 72 particles were found in the sea salts. Thirty of these were microplastics, seventeen were pigments that may have once been plastic, and four were dust particles. Twenty-one could not be chemically identified. Scientists say the current concentration of plastic is low, and won’t affect human health. But if plastic pollution continues, those levels may increase and potentially become detrimental to our well-being. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Crying dog breaks the internet’s heart — but this sad dog story has a happy ending" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4prKTN9bYQc -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Pollution busting high tech in the freezing Arctic seas
 
05:58
(3 Oct 2018) LEAD-IN: A Finnish icebreaker has conducted an oil spill response exercise in the Baltic sea, testing a new in-built oil recovery system, a first ever for an icebreaker. STORYLINE: This is the Polaris. She can collect up to 1,400 cubic tons of oil in the harshest and icy weather conditions. The Polaris operates mainly in the Baltic sea, but can reach large parts of the Arctic Ocean during the summer months. Heading out of Helsinki harbour on a chilly autumn morning, the mission is to test new equipment and train sailors in the rapid deployment of oil containment booms. The highly automated system opens hatches on each side of the vessel from which inflatable barriers are deployed. By positioning the vessel in the path of an oil spill, these booms can trap pollutants, pushing them into hull of the ship. A skimmer with brushes then separates seawater from the oil which is stored in large tanks. Polaris' icebreaking capabilities means the vessel can intervene in oil spills in ice infested waters, but the cold brings another set of problems: oil gets thicker in cold temperatures. "It's unique because you can also collect oil in cold weather," says Lars Snellman from the company Lamor which developed the system. "There is heating in the system so it's easy to pump oil with very high viscosity." Maritime traffic in the Gulf of Finland is among the densest in Europe. Russian oil flows westwards, while container and passenger traffic sails between Helsinki and Tallinn. "There is always the possibility of a collision, due to wind, due to fog," warns Pasi Jarvelin, the Master of Polaris. "In the wintertime, if the Gulf of Finland is frozen, it has to be an icebreaker to go through the ice to a position where we have the oil spill." The ship's operator, Arctia Ltd is a Finnish government-owned enterprise. It hopes Baltic expertise in both icebreaking and oil spill response will inform and educate decisions made much further north. Shipping in the Arctic is increasing for many reasons. Tourism is one, but there is also trade and there's great interest in the untapped deposits of minerals and fossil fuels. Increases in traffic add to the potential for oil spills from platforms and vessels operating in remote locations. It is a major cause for concern among environmentalists, especially since the 1989 Exxon Valdex disaster off Alaska killed a quarter of a million seabirds, as well as hundreds of seals and sea otters. Vladimir Putin recently announced plans to increase traffic on the Northern sea route connecting Asia to Europe via the Arctic from 10 million tons today to 80 million tons within 10 years. "The use of the icebreakers for oil spill response is of course very feasible in the arctic areas as well," says Tero Vauraste, CEO of Arctia Ltd., "and it's becoming more and more important because of the fact that traffic is going to increase." Operating in the Arctic Ocean remains challenging and dangerous. Vessels face high risks of running aground in waters which are still poorly charted, and while thick ice may be retreating, ice flows still present a serious threat to shipping. The World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) warns that oil spill response capabilities in the Arctic remain very limited and no comprehensive assessment of the risks has been conducted.

New York's Toxic Wasteland: America's Water Crisis (Part 1/3)
 
09:51
Every time it rains in New York City, billions of gallons of raw sewage are piped directly into the Hudson River. Superstorms like Hurricane Sandy only magnify the issue by flooding New York's waterways with even more human feces. It's a direct effect of the way New York City's wastewater pipes were built, and it's the same basic infrastructure problem facing over 40 million people in 700 American cities. In the first part of a three-part series on freshwater in America, Emerson Rosenthal takes a dip in the grand Hudson River to find out just how far we've swum up shit's creek.

Marine snakes: they turn black in response to industrial pollution.
 
01:27
Marine snakes: they turn black in response to industrial pollution. Contamination of mining activities may be encouraging some marine snakes to develop black skins the first evidence of industrial melanism in a marine species. Previous studies have observed industrial melanism in invertebrate species, the most famous being mottled speckled moth. During the Industrial Revolution in England, the frequency of dark-colored moths shot up. Schoolchildren are often taught that such insects mix well with the bark of soot-covered trees in industrial areas, so their chances of surviving and breeding suddenly increased, although this may be oversimplification. The sea-serpent with turtle-headed Emydocephalus annulatus is found largely in certain tropical waters near Australia. Usually snakes look like candy canes with black and white bands. But Shine and his colleagues found that people living near contaminated areas on the French island of New Caledonia, northeast of Brisbane and on a nearby barrier reef atoll used as a bombing camp were completely black. The group already knew that contaminants such as arsenic or lead can bind melanin, a dark pigment in the skin, and wondered if this could explain black snakes. To find out, collected and analyzed the skins naturally spilled by these snakes in industrial and non-industrial waters. Marine snakes often shed or slough their skin a few times a year. #ymasciencia

Our Rising Oceans (VICE on HBO: Season 3, Episode 1)
 
42:52
Our oceans are rising. With human use of hydrocarbons skyrocketing, waters around the globe are getting hotter and, now, this warm sub-surface water is washing into Antarctica’s massive western glaciers causing the glaciers to retreat and break off. Antarctica holds 90% of the world’s ice and 70% of its freshwater, so if even a small fraction of the ice sheet in Antarctica melts, the resulting sea level rise will completely remap the world as we know it – and it is already happening. In the last decade, some of the most significant glaciers here have tripled their melt rate. VICE founder Shane Smith travels to the bottom of the world to investigate the instability of the West Antarctic ice sheet and to see first hand how the continent is melting -- and VICE follows the rising oceans to Bangladesh for a glimpse into the world's underwater future. From the UN Climate conference to the People's Climate March to the forces that deny the science of global climate change, this special extended episode covers all sides of the issue and all corners of the globe, ending with a special interview with Vice President Joe Biden.

Expert calls for multi-approach measures to contain pollution after oil tanker collision
 
01:36
An environmental specialist has suggested a combination of physical, chemical and biological approaches to facilitate the recovery from the contamination resulting from the sunken oil tanker SANCHI. Professor Fu Pengcheng with the Beijing University of Chemical Technology advised the relevant authorities to put up a team of experts to evaluate the pollution situation as soon as possible on Monday. He made the suggestion when being interviewed by China Global Television Network (CGTN) on the response measures regarding the sinking of the Panama-registered vessel that was carrying 136,000 tons of crude oil. "The oil will contain some kinds of toxic materials, which will do harm to sea animals, sea plants and the ecosystem like microorganisms living in the sea. Now the most important thing we need to do is to send a team of experts to evaluate the situation and try to make some appropriate plans to minimize the damage," he said. Warning that the hazards left by accident could last as long as decades, the expert on bioenergy and biofuels proposed a multifaceted approach for the anti-pollution work. "Based on our previous experience, the time for all the contaminated area to completely recover may take decades, even centuries. So we need to work for a long, long time, using the physical approach, the chemical approach, and the biological approach, and the combination of them. Physical approach is designed to see whether we can collect all the oil, or most of it. And we may need to use some kinds of dispersants. And also the biological approach can be used, like bacteria and the so-called bio-remediation, so that they will degrade the harmful materials and then convert them to some kinds of unharmful materials so that the impact will be minimized," said the professor. The Panama-registered oil tanker SANCHI collided with CF Crystal, a Hong Kong-registered bulk freighter, about 300 kilometers east of the Yangtze River estuary in Shanghai on Jan. 6. Thirty-two crew members of the tanker, 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis, went missing after the collision. But only the bodies of three crew members had been found. Meanwhile, all 21 crew members on the bulk freighter -- all Chinese nationals -- were rescued. SANCHI had been burning since the collision. It exploded and completely sunk on Sunday afternoon, shrouded in thick black smoke. As of Monday, no fire can be seen at the accident site and the black smoke is notably thinner than on the previous day, according to the Shanghai Maritime Search and Rescue Center.

Gansbaai, South Africa Known as the Great White Shark diving capital of the world, the stretch of water between Gansbaai and Dyer Island in South Africa is also known as "shark alley". These sharks are drawn to the area because of the Colony of 60,000 Cape Fur seals living in and around that small channel of water. Instead of driving people away, the sharks are The main source of tourism in the area. Visitors from all over the world come to go cage diving in order to see these predators up close. If you're up for adventure travel then this would be the perfect vacation for you. Without the cage, it is One of the most dangerous areas to go for a swim in the world. Only because a person swimming might look a lot like a seal. In 2013, a Couple on their honeymoon went on a cage dive and a great white approached, swam right past the bait, fit its head through the bars and thrashed around, trying to get at the couple. It almost killed the groom but, he survived. The near-tragedy Prompted critics to tell people to not cage dive, citing that chumming waters looking for sharks leads to fatalities. 8. Chowpatty Beach, India Chowpatty Beach is both India’s most famous beach and One of the most polluted in the world. Even though the sea is unfit for swimming, every year hundreds of locals celebrate the Hindu festival of Ganesha Chaturthi on the beach. During the festival, it’s a Tradition to wash their idols of Lord Ganapati in the ocean water. Because of the high amount of pollution, celebrants are more likely to Catch nasty diseases like e. coli and hepatitis. The causes of the pollution can be traced to discharge from sewage pipes, waste from storm drains, and open defecation. For a long time the beach itself was Covered in debris and scraps from salvaged ships. In August of 2016, the sands of the beach mysteriously turned black. An oil slick was blamed but the source of the oil was never found. 7. Fraser Island, Australia Fraser Island, off the coast of Australia, is The world's largest sand island. This paradise is extremely popular for camping and ecotourism but before you go, you should be aware of what lurks beneath the sand and sea. Sharks and potentially jellyfish fill the waters around Fraser Island. Rip currents also pose a threat to swimmers and surfers. The beach isn’t much better, either. The island is home to some of the world’s most dangerous spiders, wild dingos and large crocodiles. Spinal injuries are common from visitors careening around the sand dunes on four wheelers. Every year there is a steady stream of accidents. The RACQ CareFlight is a charity-backed service that doesn’t charge its patients for rescue helicopter missions. From 2013-2014 the helicopters flew 64 rescue missions to Fraser Island. During an average summer holiday, 40 to 50 emergency calls are made to paramedics. So far, at least one child has been taken by dingoes on Fraser Island and countless others have been Stung by the Irukandji jellyfish and airlifted out. Before visiting this natural wonderland, just be aware of what dangers you might face. And don't feed the dingos! 6. Island of La Reunion, Indian Ocean This little known gem in the Indian Ocean, 140 miles from Mauritius, is One of the most intriguing spots on Earth. With an active volcano, forests, mountains, and scenic beaches what more could you ask of the tropical paradise? Just don't go in the water. For some reason the waters off La Reunion are One of the most dangerous shark attack spots in the world. While in Mariutius, people are happily swimming, surfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving, at La Reunion, people barely dip more than a toe in the water because of a fear of shark attacks. Since 2011 there have been 18 shark attacks resulting in 7 casualties. This means that in the past 5 years, 13% of all the world’s fatal shark attacks have occurred on this 40 mile long island. In 2013 Officials placed a ban on swimming and surfing on more than half of the coastline. Before 2011, shark attacks were infrequent and rarely fatal. No one is sure why there are suddenly so many sharks in the area. One victim of the attacks was a 13-year-old up and coming surfer named Elio Canestri in April 2013. He went surfing after leaving a note for his mother, and was caught while surfing in an unmonitored area. Experts say that the Main culprits for the attacks are bull sharks, which are the most aggressive tropical sharks.

Ocean pollution: Remote, uninhabited Henderson Island is covered in our garbage - TomoNews
 
08:27
PITCAIRN ISLANDS, SOUTH PACIFIC OCEAN — One of the most isolated and inaccessible islands on the planet is covered in our garbage — despite being uninhabited. Henderson Island is a remote atoll located on the western edge of a circular system of ocean currents known as the South Pacific Gyre. The British Overseas Territory was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1988. At the time, UNESCO said its near-pristine ecosystem was of immense value for science. However, researchers writing in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences say the island has the highest density of plastic waste in the world. Some 38 million pieces of garbage have washed up on Henderson Island’s once pristine sands. Analysis of the trash shows it was carried there from China, Japan, South America, Europe, the U.S. and Russia. The researchers estimate that 3,500 pieces of trash wash up on the island daily, and typically include household items made of plastic such as toothbrushes, plastic bags and plastic razors. Wildlife, including turtles and crabs, have been impacted by the garbage that has been dumped on the island’s shores, according to researchers. Trying to clean the island’s beaches would be pointless because of the lack of visitors and sheer volume of trash that washes up there daily, report co-author Alex Bond told the Washington Post. He advised people to use alternatives to plastic, such as bamboo toothbrushes and canvas carrier bags, and to bring your own mug to Starbucks. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Crying dog breaks the internet’s heart — but this sad dog story has a happy ending" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4prKTN9bYQc -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Sustainable Development in Black Sea Region
 
05:39
Regional Partnerships for Sustainable Development: The rapid increase in economic activity and the growth rate of Black Sea countries have brought many opportunities and many challenges to the region. The Black Sea is very vulnerable to pressure from land-based activity and its sustainability is dependent on the well-being and good governance of coastal and non-coastal states of its basin. The implementation of sustainable development policies is extremely critical for the countries of the region. Clearly, unless development is secured in a sustainable way, the goods and services provided by the environment for many economic activities would be jeopardized, impacting the social and economic welfare of the inhabitants of this strategic region. The programme has been funded by generous support of Italian Trust Fund.

Find out about this National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Study here : Avoiding belligerent bus drivers or unwitting tourists popping out of taxis are just a few of the more obvious risks of riding a bike through city streets.Yet there could be another inconspicuous and nearly unavoidable danger that could take a toll on your health: air pollution. Identifying how hazardous exercise can be in an urban environment filled with noxious particles in the air is the goal of a new study by Columbia University researchers Steven Chillrud and Darby Jack. Using biometric sensors, a wearable pollution monitor, and GPS, the study will detail participants' exposure to toxins as they cycle through city streets.

Russia Is Profiting Off Global Warming | VICE on HBO

While many parts of the world are struggling from catastrophic effects of climate change, Russia is looking to capitalize on it, with the Kremlin driving a narrative that touts the economic benefits. Like more and faster access to petroleum and mineral reserves that were previously unreachable. The Northern Sea Passage, a legendary shipping lane along Russia’s Arctic coastline, has been largely inaccessible for part of the year because of dense sea ice. But now, that ice is melting, opening up a new trade route for Russia's cargo ships. Russian oil companies are already betting big on the new reserves they hope to find in the Russian Arctic, and other industries — like mining — are ramping up production since they now have faster shipping routes to many ports. “The problem of climate change is actually the problem of adaptation to climate change. This is not a tragedy,” said Nobel Prize-winning climatologist Oleg Anisimov. “Certainly some places will become unlivable, but other areas are places that will become more livable.” But the Russian people seem unaware, or unconcerned, about the environmental impacts of these climate change-related activities, like pollution from the booming factories, and wildfires in the North that destroyed million of acres of forest in a major tourism area. VICE’s Gianna Toboni visited Russia's Arctic to see just how big the country is betting on climate change.
