we are dumping more garbage in the oceans than we take out resulting in drowning oceans

Our oceans need help. Rising sea level is one of the most prominent effects of global warming. In the recent years, we have not only witnessed the rise in sea levels but also an increase in the ocean temperature, which is not only leading to flooding of the costal lands but also impacting the marine life, such as the corals.   Our oceans absorb the heat from...

In a world of science and research today, surprising and obscure facts pop up daily on our notifications. One such amazing fact you were probably oblivious about is that you lip-read while trying to converse with someone.
