Chinese scientists on the latest Antarctic expedition have – for the first time – discovered the presence of microplastics in Antarctic waters, reports cctv.com.
Chinese scientists are warning the presence of microplastics in the polar ocean is a reflection of the widespread distribution of the environmental scourge.
