Study finds noise caused by humans are affecting deep sea animals
Listen now
There are times that we, as humans, think that we can't affect the ocean because it is so big and so deep. In fact, there used to be a saying: "The solution to pollution is dilution." But scientists and engineers realized that there is a tipping point where there is so much pollution that dilution is impossible. The same truth works for noise pollution. Noise can reach many places including the deep sea, according to a recent study. I am going to discuss why the results of this noise study should throw caution into the wind for deep-sea mining.   Link to article:   Join the audio program - Build Your Marine Science and Conservation Career:   Facebook Group: Connect with Speak Up For Blue: Website: Instagram: Twitter:
