David Attenborough is a naturalist that has just ended production for Blue Planet II, a BBC series that focuses on how much pollution is affecting sea life. It’s a sequel to the original that featured eight hour-long episodes that focused on the history of our oceans. At a show launch party, Attenborough gave his reasons for why he believes global warming and plastic pollution are the biggest problems facing our oceans.

Plastic pollution has been called out frequently as studies continue to come out on how much damage it creates to our environment. The Guardian states that one million plastic bottles are purchased every minute. Most of our plastic waste is then discarded into the trash instead of recycled, then it finds its way into our oceans.
