  • Hey there!

  • Welcome to Life Noggin!

  • Guess what, friends?

  • Today we're doing something pretty specialexploring the Life Noggin north pole!

  • Just in time for after Christmas!

  • Rhombus said that he found something here that we need to check out.

  • Oooh I hope it's Santa!

  • Santa doesn't visit these parts, and i know it's after Christmas, but there's still a

  • chance!

  • Hold up, gang!

  • Do you see that?!

  • It's probably Santa!

  • Wait a minutethat's not Santa.

  • It's just a big pile of plastics!

  • Darn it.

  • I was worried about this happening.

  • It seems that some of the plastic waste that we're creating in the Life Noggin world

  • is finding its way up here.

  • Actually, similar problems are going on with your north pole too.

  • Just last year, in the middle of the Arctic Ocean, researchers from a British-led expedition

  • found decently-sized chunks of plastic lying around on frozen sheets of ice.

  • Now, we already knew that the world's oceans were being polluted by plastics and other

  • waste, but this was one of the most distant sightings of this type of pollution up north

  • only around 1,600 kilometers from the north pole itself.

  • We're only really learning about this now because scientists couldn't get to the area

  • before because of ice in the sea blocking the way.

  • Not only is this pollution not cool for my polar pals, but scientists are worried that

  • these plastics and other trash could get dumped into the ocean as climate change causes the

  • ice to meltadding to our already bad problem of plastic pollution in the ocean.

  • It's estimated that you humans produce about 300 million tons of plastic each year, with

  • around 8 million metric tons of the stuff ending up in the ocean.

  • That's a lot of plastic!

  • And these plastics can last for a long time, which is great for consumer purposes, but

  • really bad for the Earth's ecosystems.

  • We've all seen the heartbreaking pictures of turtles and other sea creatures with plastics

  • around their mouths or deforming their bodies.

  • Unfortunately, the problem extends far beyond even that when we're talking about what's

  • calledmicroplastics”.

  • Microplastics are super small pieces of plastic that are less than five millimeters long.

  • Their small size makes microplastics especially harmful to aquatic life as they can more easily

  • enter the animal's bodies and make their way into the food chain.

  • It's bad for you too, as those microplastics can even end up in your seafood.

  • But plastic isn't even the only type of pollution to be worried about in the Arctic,

  • though.

  • Human-made noise pollution could also be a problem, especially as the ice melts, potentially

  • affecting how the sound travels up there.

  • Certain animals, like ringed seals and beluga whales, use sound to communicate and navigate

  • through the dark depths of the ocean.

  • Narwhals even use biosonar to hunt for fish, so if humans are making a bunch of noise up

  • there, it could really throw things off.

  • Well, we really learned a lot today, but i was kinda hoping i would run into...

  • Ho Ho Ho!

  • Santa?

  • Santa!

  • You're here?

  • In the Life Noggin world!?

  • Santa: Of course!

  • I'm Santa!

  • I'm made of magic!

  • Blocko: How come I didn't see you last year? and how come you came so late?

  • Santa: ...uh...well.

  • Santa was really busy.

  • Blocko: Oh, with what?

  • Santa: Alright listen kid, you want your presents or not?

  • Blocko: Yes yes yes!

  • Yes yes! Gimmie the presents!

  • Please?

  • Uh, please!

  • Santa: Here you go!

  • Here you go!

  • Here you go! AND here you go Blocko!

  • This one is very special.

  • Blocko: Thanks Santa!

  • Santa: Thank YOU!

  • See you next year everyone!

  • ho ho ho!

  • Oh wow it's....a bag of oatmeal stapled to a cactus....

  • THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED!

  • How did he know!?

  • Wow!

  • I hope you had a great holiday season, and a great year!

  • Thank you so much for watching, and supporting Life Noggin.

  • Let me know what we should talk about next year in the comment section below!

  • Enjoyed this video?

  • Check out the winter edition of Dear Blocko that we did!

  • Dear Blocko, can you explain flu season and why it happens?

  • ah, the human flu season, the time when those evil flu viruses are at their worst!

  • as always, my name is Blocko, this has been Life Noggin, don't forget to keep on thinking!

Hey there!
