It is hard for me to wrap my mind around " The Great Pacific Garbage Patch" or the "Eastern Garbage Patch".
On one of my Atlantic flights I sat next to a Marine Biologist whom I asked if truth beholds that there is really that much plastic and trash in our oceans stretching from the South Pole to the Bering Street. He nodded his head, he even went to dive in it. Just imagine one of them is floating close to Hawaii. The patch is twice the size of Texas. One researcher on Science Friday yesterday even claims that it is three times the size of Texas.
