Garbage Mass Twice the Area of Texas

 C Pictures 2007 10 19 Ba Greenocean03
I had no idea that a land mass of garbage of such magnitude existed.

From The San Francisco Chronicle:

…the so-called Great Pacific Garbage Patch – a heap of debris floating in the Pacific that’s twice the size of Texas, according to marine biologists.

The enormous stew of trash – which consists of 80 percent plastics and weighs some 3.5 million tons, say oceanographers – floats where few people ever travel, in a no-man’s land between San Francisco and Hawaii.
