my country’s satellite detected the”New World”? There are more than 10 Henan provinces, why do countries avoid it?
Scientific frontiers view the world and learn from the world
In the past ten years, the level of science and technology in China has advanced by leaps and bounds, and many established developed countries have With envious eyes, the raging technological war is the best proof. With the continuous improvement of China’s technological level, the exploration of the earth and nature has reached a new height. Chang’e goes to the sky, and the dragon enters the sea. One miracle after another refreshes our cognition, allowing us to have a more keen insight into what we have never met before. Earth. Thanks to the development of space science and technology, Chinese satellites discovered the”new continent” of the earth.
As we all know, the earthSeven continents, four oceans, three-part land, and seven-part ocean have existed stably for hundreds of millions of years. So what exactly is this”eighth continent”? Satellite images show that on the North Pacific between the west coast of North America and the Hawaii Islands, there is a map that has never been marked The huge”continent” covers an area of more than 1.6 million square kilometers, equivalent to the area of 10 Henan provinces. But what is strange is that no one lives on this”mainland”, and countries around the world have no intention of vying for occupation, but are afraid to avoid it… What kind of secret is hidden behind this?
The correct answer is:the eighth continent of the world is entirely made of marine debris Gathered! Affected by ocean currents, garbage and plastics in the entire Pacific Ocean will continue to gather in this”continent”, absorbing the surrounding marine garbage every day, so the area is getting bigger day by day. In addition, sea storms may further cause the original chunky plastic waste to become more dispersed, resulting in more serious ecological disasters. An investigation showed that all human daily necessities can be found on this”continent”, which also made us realize in our hearts that ocean pollution has reached a terrible level.
It can be seen in the image transmitted by the satellite , This garbage continent is like a moving plate in the North Pacific Ocean. According to its rough volume, this”outside the world” garbage source consists of 1.8 trillion pieces and 4 million tons of plastic garbage. Although this rubbish does not accumulate on the land of any country, the ultimate consequences need to be borne by all mankind.
Humans produce more than 320 million tons of plastic waste every year , But only a small part of it can be recycled, even incinerated, landfilled, and most of them have entered the ocean. As everyone’s life is getting faster and faster, the earth we live in has turned into a large garbage dump, and the three-dimensional pollution of sea, land, and air is increasing. Sadly, in the face of the Eighth Continent, all countries are afraid to avoid it. Should we really treat the deteriorating planet with this attitude?
