THE GREAT PACIFIC GARBAGE PATCH
Wikipedia has good information about and links to deeper discussion of The North Pacific Gyre and the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
Margaret Wertheim’s Institute for Figuring has a nice synopsis of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (aka North Pacific Gyre), as well as other useful information about imperiled coral reefs, etc.
We will add more links to information about this terrifying reflection of human beings’ inability to self-regulate and disregard for their impact on the planet.
