Man almost instinctively recoils from using the ocean for the disposal of toxic wastes. It was not always this way, but our protective attitude toward the ocean grew stronger with the flowering of the environmental move-ment in the s. Perhaps it was a combination of things. There was a popular book called The Frail Ocean. for comparison of land-based disposal options with sea dumping and the costs and risks associated with these options. Optimizing a waste management system, involves the review of a series of parameters specific to the waste characteristics, the site environment, and available resources combined with national, social, and political Size: KB. Ocean waste disposal is purposeful as opposed to accidental. The discharge is directly to marine waters as opposed to indirectly through rivers or groundwater. In many instances ocean waste disposal augments the natural flow of nutrients, metals, sediments and other materials to the ocean. Pro They are starting to use more sturdy containers that wont spread the radioactive and nuclear waste. Con Nuclear waste can further worsen climate change if dumped into the ocean or other unsafe spaces. A big part of fighting climate change is stopping the dumping of Nuclear.
