PACIFIC GARBAGE PATCH EXPLODES IN SIZE

Two massive areas of floating rubbish located 500 nautical miles off the coast of California is growing at such a tremendous rate that scientists believe it is only a matter of short time before the “garbage islands” have a direct, negative impact on human health.

Oceanographer Charles Moore, who originally discovered the waste dump in 1997, believes there is more than a million tons of plastic resting here, or about 2.5% of all plastic items made since 1950. Almost unbelievable to imagine, the garbage piles are thought to cover more area than the United States. News Australia has more.
