I have recently become concerned about the amount of rubbish accumulating in the ocean. You can ask many people around NZ about this, but they may not know about it. The problem is increasing by the minute! There are many fish dying by mistaking if for food, or getting caught in it. Large expanses of water (gyres) in our oceans are full of rubbish!
If nothing is done, the issue will certainly become more dangerous for the earth, and maybe our future. Scientists have discovered that this might be more threatening than climate change. This planet is heading for serious trouble. Fishing nets and buoys that are lost in accidents float around until they join the Great Pacific Rubbish Patch. The ocean is not a wasteland.
You should do something about this pollution. A possible solution it to make it that anyone caught doing this should pay a hefty fine. As Prime Minister I expect you to protect NZ. I am extremely concerned about this.
