Not tring to make a big stink about it, but I noticed that there were only 200 and some threads on the "garbage patch" unless other threads were labled differently. I see counless threads on things that have not been official deemed "real" like chemtrails, aliens and such. ( I believe in both, and I'm not a envio. Nutt) but yet we have something we know is real and we still seem to post more on the "interesting and exciteing" stuff. Don't you think its a little sad? BTW does anyone know the GPS cords. to this for google maps/ earth? Or any word on the size growth? Also I heard rumor of a man out there securing trash together to make an island? Anywho, I know there are more important and pressing issues at work right now in the world but we have a KNOWN problem and need a solution to this issue and I think it would be nice to see more known issues (confirmed) like this poping up on the main page were people are trying to do more then just talk about it..... and maybe we can knock out one issue at a time to get things done!
well not meaning to offend anyone here, and lots of love for ATS and its members!

Peace, love, truth, and freedom!

I'm sorry, but I am lost. Could you be more specific about what you are talking about. What is the "garbage Patch"?

The Pacific garbage patch. There are threads about it and it is truly disgusting.

But the most disgusting part is that it's not the only one--there are others, just as big or bigger, floating around our oceans.

There is a beach (on one of the Hawaiian islands, I believe) that they call "Plastic beach" because there is no sand--only plastic. It has broken down to be almost as fine as sand, but it is plastic.

The garbage patch has been known about for decades.

So let me get this straight you just joined and you feel the need to tell others what is important.




Maybe the problem is with you.

You'll find multiple opinions on here as to what is really important.

I for one am a geek for pretty much anything antarctica and metaphysical/spiritual. And I think that Lake Vostok is of more importance then even the election or SOPA or PIPA.

If you find it important instead of telling ppl to go research it, why dont you research it yourself create thread (with clear thoughts) about your opinion. You will find others who agree and you will be a little less upset.

Maybe they should give you the authority to judge what you feel is important and we should only discuss that. Arrogant comes to mind.



Just because something is not as important to you does not mean it does not have worth to another.

Noticed you haven't made a thread on it... That is your option, if you feel there is something lacking... and you're right, the situation we've created in the ocean is disgusting and shameful.

Well I may have just "signed up" but I have been watching and reading on ATS for some time. And I dont ever recall using the word "important" in regaurds to anything other then OTHER events going on in the world. And this was an example of an idea. And if I have opinion on what I thought was important, is that so wrong? Is that not one of the stuctured ideas this site was based apon? Anyway debate me if you wish, that's one of the freedoms we currently still currently have. And sorry I guess it was brought to my attention that this thread has already been covered and hammered to the wall. I'm assuming you speak of the Garbage patch, my post was more on the lack of attention we seem to present to real somewhat boring issues, over exciting, unconfirmed ones that we really really can't do anything about other then observe and report. I.e. aliens, chemtrails. As fas as upsetting people, so be it! There will never be a day in my lifetime where everyone will agree with everything that is said or done. Getting upset is also a clear motivator for some people to do the right thing, so if I upset people by voiceing my opinion, then they can be the first in line to go and vote to have our rights to opinon taken away. And my apologies for not being clear on my intentions with my post. I can clearly see it was my fault because thing were taken out of context.

It is indeed disgusting and a shame that things could get to such a point! We must nurture the earth and revere her or things will just get worse as time goes on. Very sad. And you're right is is important!

Huge floating garbage dumps right
in the middle of the beautiful ocean.
It doesn't get any more disgusting
than this. I have definitely heard of
this before and it angers me each
time.

Well that is not really fair. Yes I could have goggled it, but I didn't write the thread. I was curious because within 20 miles of where I live there is an area of land with 5(FIVE) landfills located on it. They call it the "garbage patch".

I'm sorry I was not tring to be lazy, I am on my mobile and its hard toget into so much detail. I bounce from ip to ip trying not to be localized. And I never meant to offend anyone I was just trying to communicate with fellow ATS members.

That amount of plastic in the ocean is crazy. That poor sea turtle. After seeing that I really think we need a plastic ban the whole world needs a plastic ban they need to find a differnt source other than plastic. all i can say is wow!

I agree, now when given the choice its paper not plastic, and I try to not use plastic as much as possible.... I agree with the ban idea though.
