Plastic is considered to be the most dangerous pollution on earth because plastic never gets converted into compost and goes on making the land barren. Scientists have started saying that now plastic has become a part of the Earth’s climate system. This new discovery confirms this even more, in which the plastic layer has now been found on the rocks. Nature According to the report, in 2020 scientists in Brazil had found such rocks inside which plastic layers were found. These were called anthropocunas.
Now these plastic coated rocks have been found in Hechi city of China. Dayi Hou, a soil and groundwater scientist at Beijing’s Tsinghua University, says that the man of the 21st century is creating new geological records. Hou and his colleagues found rocks covered with plastic sheets there. The report has been published in Environmental Science and Technology. The surprising thing has been told that there is a chemical bond between the plastic and the rocks.
When scientists tried to solve this knot, they found that there were carbon molecules present on the lower part of the polyethylene layers of the plastic, which were connected with the help of oxygen molecules from the silicon present inside the rocks. Hou says that this bond is formed due to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. Or it may also happen that it was formed due to some activity of small bacteria present on the rocks. Later it was said that this plastic may have been attached to these rocks through some physical force, rather than through any chemical process.
It is said to be really worrying to find layers of plastic frozen on the rocks like this. If this happens, there can be a huge crisis for the life of sea creatures.
