The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is 16 times larger than we thought, according to the journal Scientific Reports — Quartz

This is really difficult to grasp, the magnitude of this and the silence that goes with it. A garbage patch twice the size of Texas now. Obviously, this requires an international effort, a global effort because in the end, it’s affects all seven billion of our family and friends.

In the meantime, here’s a little photo gallery to stare at and ponder, where does all that stuff actually go anyway. If you’re one of those who doesn’t believe in Science, or thinks everything a conspiracy, or just cannot accept facts or takes FoxNews as a credible news agency, I’ve included a photo for you at the end of the gallery so you can stick your head back in.
