We Are The World.....

....We Are The Plastic.

Pale from the very fine 'A Creative Revolution' has the story:

The eastern Garbage patch.

Bigger than the size of Texas. A Leviathan, with no head, and no tail. An endless sea of trash out in the pacific.

When I tell people about it, they look at me kind of puzzled like, and ask....."Well why don't they just send some boats out to clean it up?" Another question: "Well, if it's that big, why aren't there photos of it?"

The reasons, it can't just be scooped up or photographed, are worse than you can imagine.

This is stuff that matters.
