Dolphins aren't as benign as you think:

Male alliances typically "herd" females for anywhere from a few minutes to months(4) These herding events are not usually enjoyed by the females. Herding is often forcible with escape events and violence involved.(3) In a herding event males will surround the female or chase her. Aggression toward the female is common and can include: hitting with the tail, head-jerks, charging, biting, or body slamming.(3) Should the female try to escape, which often happens, the males will chase her more often than not. Of course the ultimate goal of a herding event is sex and the males in the alliance will take turns to make sure everyone has an equal share. If the alliance has three members, only 2 will herd the female and the third will stay behind. However, the individual who is left behind changes with every herding event so again all members have an equal chance at mating. (3)

"Herding". So that's what gang-rape is called in dolphins society. I bet if the dolphins could manipulate objects with the same degree of precision we could, they be setting of nukes in the ocean.

We have the technology to fix this, and we can recycle, and we can re-use. We can use only packaging that is biodegradable (truly biodradable into harmless substances).

The fact that something like this is allowed to exist is terrible. It's 2007, we do have the tech to handle this.

Agreed cybertroy,
It seems we humans are masters at creating things we think we need without looking ahead at the possible consequences.
Plastic is only one area-we may also fall into the same trap with nuclear power,GMOs and nano tech.
Damn shame.

This plastic island made the MSM with a story running on all the major broadcasts, I just saw it mentioned again on Brit Hume's Special Report show.

Maybe the increased exposure can get some kind of clean up effort in the works.

I would like to claim it as soverign nation of the United States of Nohup. I don't want to be Emperor of it, though. Somebody else can develop the natural resources, tax the populace. Just give me a cut of the profits.
