Yesterday, I came across this news story from CCNN (link
) regarding the collection of toxic plastics accumulating in the Pacific Ocean.
I'd already heard about this phenomena, but with almost no details. So I followed the links and watched the show these folks had done on their journey (going out to actually see
what this mess looked like).[INDENT]Part 1
[/INDENT]Be advised that the researchers followed in this documentary are very "casual" with their language; it didn't bother me a bit, bit it might some.
It's thoroughly depressing; the utter insurmountably and scale of this problem destroying our food chain. Unfortunately, it's out of sight (with probably 98% of the plastics not visible on the surface) and in the middle of nowhere - therefore; in accordance with the way people think, it's "out of mind".
Important knowledge for those who care about the future and welfare of life both in our oceans and in the overall food chain.
Enjoy... I think
