Scientist got to the deep and mysterious points of our planet
American researcher Victor Vescovo undertook a descent into the deepest depression the World ocean — the abyss of Challenger
The scientist went down almost 11 km and could not believe my eyes. At the bottom he found plastic residues, in particular, candy wrappers and a plastic bag. Experts are sounding the alarm – every year in the oceans are millions of tons of harmful plastic.
And now the waste has reached the deepest trench of the ocean.
As we wrote earlier, scientists have found a fungus that destroys fruit.
A fungus that kills bananas, spread with every year faster. Of climate change on the planet contribute to the spreading threat of banana trees fungus called black sigatoka (also known as “black leaf streak”), according to CNN.
If the virus will progress at the same rate, the crop trees will be reduced by 80%.
The fungus first appeared in Honduras in 1972. Until 2000, the black sigatoka arrived in all neighboring countries-producers of this fruit. In August 2004, the disease has reached Puerto Rico, now moved North of Florida.
It is also known that black sigatoka has greatly increased the costs of drugs (fungicides) that support productivity.
“This condition fails to hold with anti-fungal sprays. For example, producers of bananas in Costa Rica it costs $100 million a year”, – says the expert.
Also the situation with the fungus is strongly influenced by global climate change. Risks of infection for the last 60 years has increased by 44% due to the increase of humidity and temperature which are favorable for the pathogen.
To say exactly what the future holds banana trees difficult. The researchers predict two options: either the producers forked out for pharmaceuticals, thereby raising the price of fruit, or the harvest will fall significantly.
Recall that scientists are stunned by the discovery in the milky Way: “an intergalactic catastrophe.”
As reported Politeka, a huge asteroid hurtling towards Earth: NASA’s talking about the clash.
Also Politeka wrote that Newton’s prophecy about the end of the world shocked the whole world: mention the date.
