More on the Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Expect me to keep posting and providing information on the great Pacific garbage patch as the subject is too important to ignore. The fulll extent of this problem isn't completely known yet but there are reports of garbage patches in other oceans now and this plastic is making its way ito the food chain.

And this lecture on the subject of what happens to the 100 billion pounds of thermo plastic pellets produced anually is from the good people over at TED and describes in some detail the extent of the problem.
