Why didn't your parents care about the environment, when they made you ? They should have used a "con dumb"

Because the left isn't happy unless it gets in your grill. Telling you how to carry groceries home from the store, because you're too ignorant and uncaring to decide for yourself.

Not so great:

"The size of the patch is unknown, as large items readily visible from a boat deck are uncommon. Most debris consists of small plastic particles suspended at or just below the surface, making it impossible to detect by aircraft or satellite."

I told you leftists wamt to tell everyone what they must do to save the planet, see the admission above for example.

It's elementary, my dear Watson. In this Brave New World, the very lack of evidence proves it must be true.

Or jumping at shadows:
Despite its size and density, the patch is not visible from satellite photography, nor even necessarily to a casual boater or diver in the area, since it consists primarily of a small increase in suspended, often-microscopic particles in the upper water column. Since plastics break down to even smaller polymers, concentrations of submerged particles are not visible from space, nor do they appear as a continuous debris field to human eyes. Instead, the patch is defined as an area in which the mass of plastic debris in the upper water column is significantly higher than average."

Project Kaisei was started in late 2008 to help begin to bring all parties to the table to stem the flow of plastic and marine debris into our ocean.
