The health of the world's oceans is being destroyed by human beings, and a new group called the Seaweed Rebels wants to do something about it. It's all part of the so-called "blue movement" that hopes to raise awareness of the destruction now being dished out onto the oceans by mankind.

So just what is mankind doing to destroy the oceans? For starters, by polluting our rivers and streams, we are indirectly polluting the oceans. All the toxic waste products, the heavy metals, pesticide runoff, and other toxins that go into our rivers ultimately empty into the ocean. The Mississippi river, for example, even though it starts out as clean, pristine waters in the Rocky Mountains, ends up becoming a polluted, toxic soup by the time it flushes into the Gulf of Mexico.

We also pollute our ocean waters in many other ways -- we pollute them with sound pollution thanks to sonar buoys launched by the U.S. Navy. In an attempt to create a sonar net that can detect enemy submarines, we are effectively polluting the entire ocean with sound. This sound, of course, interferes with both the communication and navigation of ocean creatures such as whales and dolphins.

On top of that, humans also use the oceans as dumping grounds for all sorts of toxic substances and experimental projects. For example, nuclear bombs are set off in the ocean or on top of small islands in order to test them in relatively low-population areas. Cruise ships, of course, regularly dump their human waste and toxic chemicals such as dry cleaning chemicals and photography development chemicals directly into the ocean, with no regard whatsoever for cleanliness or safety to ocean life.

There are many more ways in which the ocean is being polluted by mankind, but the bottom line is that we as human beings have not only destroyed the balanced ecosystem on planet earth and have taken great strides toward wiping out the rainforest, now we're also destroying the life-giving oceans of this planet with alarming speed. These Seaweed Rebels are now gathering for the first ever "Blue Vision Conference," held in Washington. At this conference they are working on ways to help publicize the sad state of ocean health caused by mankind, as well as ways to influence policymakers and private industry to better respect the health of our oceans.
