North Sea Revolution-

The North Sea is a sea of the Atlantic Ocean located between Great Britain, Denmark, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and France. An epeiric sea on the European continental shelf, it connects to the ocean through the English Channel in the south and the Norwegian Sea in the north.

Oil pollution entering the marine environment has been an issue of concern for many decades. It can come from riverine or land-based sources, accidental and intentional discharges from ships, or as a by-product of offshore oil extraction. 

When exposed to oil, adult fish may experience reduced growth, enlarged livers, changes in heart and respiration rates, fin erosion, and reproduction impairment. Fish eggs and larvae can be especially sensitive to lethal and sublethal impacts.

Oil leakage or Oil Spill have many impacts on marine life. First, physical effects include death by suffocation, with oil blocking air passageways or gills. By desensitizing sensory organs, oil can affect a creature's ability to find food or detect predators. Many birds and marine mammals die of hypothermia, as oil reduces the insulating effect of feathers and fur.

Between 1949 and 1982 low-level radioactive waste was dumped in the North-East Atlantic from vessels by a number of European countries. Dumping of Nuclear Waste affects the Marine life in Ocean's and also it pollutes our ocean.

Shell, which is an Oil and Gas Company is planning to dump 11,000 tonnes of Oil and Toxic waste in the North Sea. The North Sea is already facing the worst impacts of Climate Change, Decrease in Fish reserves and Eutrophication and the plan of shell will make a huge burden on North Sea resulting in deaths of more Marine creatures in North Sea.

So, Me and Other Activists, Organization's are calling Stop Shell because ocean's are not our dumping ground. 

Shell Clean Up Your Mess.

Ocean Is Not Our Dumping Ground.
