Viral, huh? Exaggerate, huh? So you say you want something dramatic, eh?
Well, here you go.. and, BTW, this isn't a debate on whether global warming is man-made or real or not --this is actual animal death caused by actual human activity. There is no debate that human's trash, crop runoff, and effluent is killing the ocean.
It was bizarre to see that much garbage in what should be pristine ocean."

How a DVD Case Killed a Whale
One fact that left me horrified and speechless... nearly 1/4 of the Great Barrier Reef underwent severe bleaching (coral death) this year.
Not to mention the ~ 200 underwater dead zones. After the Deepwater Horizon, almost all of the gulf is now a dead zone.
Do you know why they're 'toxic' algae blooms? Algae makes a biotoxin called domoic acid that causes:
vomiting, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal cramps within 24 hours of ingestion, headache, dizziness, confusion, disorientation, loss of short-term memory, motor weakness, seizures, profuse respiratory secretions, cardiac arrhythmias, coma, and possible death
The earth's oceans account for nearly 80 percent of breathable-oxygen. Kill the ocean and we ALL die.
How about them apples??
