Gasoline and sea

Author:

Description:
The fisherman has bought a gasoline for his boat Pollution including the sea pollution is amongst the most critical issues of new era. Protection of sea is a must for all of us and the first step is to recognize the sources of pollution. Looking into the major sources to mitigate is good but not definitely enough. Growing cities and human competition in deploying fast-changing technologies lead to a large number of little pollutant sources that ends up massive devastation to our sea and environment in general. A good example, is the gasoline fuel that drives our boats. This picture is one of the millions incidence that is happening around of us where the lack of training, regulation and understanding are damaging our sea. Gasoline is usually transferred to boats in plastic containers that can be very devastating to our sea. Not only the plastic material is problematic, even an empty one after use is a noticeable source of pollutant. Continuous leaking when carrying the fuel, over flow of pouring fuel into the boat’s tank, bad habit of boatman to clean engines using gasoline and sea water, flipping the fuel tank toward the sea to remove internal clogs, these are few examples that the photographer wants you to think when looking at this picture.
