With an estimated surface area of over 600,000 square miles, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP) is the largest plastic accumulation zone in the world.
Scientists are desperately trying to clear the build-up, and this month have been able to extract 10 tonnes (10,086kg) of plastic, bringing the total of plastic removed to 145 tonnes (145,518 kg).
So the job is about .006% done? Okay, whatever. Keep on going, then.
What I object to is that the junk is being offloaded onto U.S. soil, when in fact it should just be returned to its principle point of origin: China (with an assist from the Japs).
Of course, being the assholes that they are, the ChiComs won’t destroy or recycle any of it, but just dump it all back into the ocean.
Asia wins again.
By the way, I see no reason why this cleanup effort shouldn’t be funded in its entirety by Green billionaires and their woke corporations.
