>Biggest plastic waste producer
美国制造最多塑料垃圾
When the US Environmental Protection Agency released its plan recently for addressing marine litter, it named five Asian nations as responsible for more than half of the plastic waste flowing into the oceans every year.
美国环境保护署近日发布了一项解决海洋垃圾问题的计划,点名指出五个亚洲国家要为每年流入海洋的塑料垃圾负主要责任。
But the US is by far the world's largest generator of plastic waste.
但目前美国才是世界上最大的塑料垃圾制造者。
Now, new research, published in Science Advances, reexamines the US's role as a plastic consumer and concludes that the country has much more work to do at home to manage its waste.
发表在《科学进展》上的一项新研究重新审视了美国作为塑料消费国的角色,并得出结论称,美国在处理国内垃圾方面还有很多工作要做。
It produced about 42 million metric tons of the stuff in 2016. Although the US accounted for just 4% of the global population in 2016, it generated 17% of all plastic waste.
美国2016年制造了大约4200万吨塑料垃圾,虽然当年美国人口仅占世界总人口的4%,却制造了世界上17%的塑料垃圾。
Meanwhile, less than 10% of American plastic waste is recycled, and the US has a 30-year history of shipping half of its recyclable plastic overseas, primarily to developing nations lacking the infrastructure to manage it.
与此同时,美国只有不到10%的塑料垃圾被回收利用,而美国将其一半的可回收塑料运往海外已有30年历史,主要是运往缺乏处理设施的发展中国家。

>Most-watched YouTube video
'宝贝鲨鱼'成油管流量王
"Baby Shark", the infuriatingly catchy children's rhyme recorded by South Korean company Pinkfong, has become the most-watched video ever on YouTube.
韩国碰碰狐公司录制的超洗脑儿童歌曲《宝贝鲨鱼》成为油管有史以来浏览量最高的视频。The song has now been played 7.04 billion times, overtaking the previous record holder "Despacito", the Latin pop smash by singer Luis Fonsi.
这首歌曲迄今为止已经被播放了70.4亿次,超越了前任冠军——歌手路易斯•冯西演唱的热门拉丁流行歌曲《Despacito》保持的纪录。
Played back-to-back, that would mean "Baby Shark" has been streamed continuously for 30,187 years. 这意味着,在连续播放的情况下,《宝贝鲨鱼》总计播放时间达3万零187年。
Pinkfong stands to have made about $5.2m from YouTube streams alone.
碰碰狐公司光是在油管上播放这一歌曲视频就入账了520万美元(约合人民币3479万元)。
