Transcript of Author's Viewpoint

Viewpoint Viewpoint perspective or opinion on a topic is the author's Dolphins have suffered from the carelessness of humans. Many dolphins are killed each year in fishing nets. Oil has been spilled into ocean water, polluting the dolphins' environment.

Part of the problem is ignorance or laziness: many things that are thrown out could have been recycled. Another problem is the use of disposable products that take a long time to degrade and pollute the earth for a long time. Every day, there is less and less space for all of our garbage.
