Choke that ocean boys......not to mention what this does to sea levels....
Maybe we can teach sharks to eat it......
Hmmmmmm.......

from the CBC link......

Scientists have known since the 1970s that plastic debris carried by currents is creating floating islands of garbage in the world's oceans, but until now they haven't studied the source.

This kind of pollution is a total disgrace & when this planet does hit the point where it's f*cked, the elite and those with the power to do something about it will realize that their cash is no longer good here

do you know why the UK is not on that list , its because even though we recycle and separate our waste a lot of it just gets dumped together and sent to china .

Norway , i think its Norway are so good at waste management they even bring it in and use it for fuel , so if they can do it why can't the rest of us ?.

It's terrible. I know some friends who went to a few pacific islands and they said that the beaches were littered with tiny flecks and pieces of plastic....what a shame.

But let's be positive. Hopefully, we are learning and trying harder now.

The city of London sorts and burns as well as recycles wholesale...they even produce enough gold out of garbage to make the process worthwhile....though perhaps that info is out of date...
Its those third world countries that pollute the most right.........
