Like so many eco-disasters, the great pacific gyre trash island is nothing of the kind. They described it as a continent of trash in the pacific ocean. Yet no pictures of it were ever shown anywhere which should tell you right away it was BS. Now scientists reveal is it nothing like the hype.
Claims that the “Great Garbage Patch” between California and Japan is twice the size of Texas is “grossly exaggerated” said the research which reckons it is more like one per cent the size.
Further reports that the oceans are filled with more plastic than plankton, and that the patch has been growing tenfold each decade since the 1950s are equally misleading, the new research claimed.
In reality it often cannot even be seen from the deck of a passing boat, said the latest analysts from the Oregon State University professor of oceanography Angelicque White.
This whole scam has been designed to try to get plastics banned. Already there has been some success. They just banned plastic bags in Italy, for example. The eco-frauds won’t be happy till people are back to living in caves and dying at age 30.
