Trash Gyres...

Noticed some Internet Myths starting to form... could be ignorance, plastic industry shill bloggers or both. One online myth stated * the * trash gyre is nowhere near as large as Texas... The words "the trash gyre" belie the fact there are at least five trash gyres. Does this "myth-teller" work for BP? The oil spill is only 100 miles across, the ("one and only") trash gyre is smaller than Texas (if you do not measure from water surface to the ocean floor... The plastic is big pieces, bottles full of air on the surface and plastic confetti, probably enough little pieces to line up end to end to the Moon and back. Comments sections of blogs are often filled with shills, dumb and dumber. The opening picture on this page could be described as "just a little piece of plastic"... But it is a big, life-threatening piece to marine life. I like eating Rock Cod, Rock Cod eat plastic and die, so I adapt and eat GMO-corn fed farm fish. Consumerism and conformity have bred people who eat big Macs, the burger part grown by a burger farmer with a plantation of burger trees. That pink foam container your home burger-fruit came in does not belong in the water after beach barbecue! Got it? Not making fun of you, corporate blogger shills are often the dumbest people on the web... Comparing plastic confetti in ocean water to Texas is comparing a person to an orange. Ocean, fish, we eat fish, plastic bad.
