    This has been debunked even by liberal media. How are people still buying into this lie. Don’t you think that if a floating garbage island that was twice the size of Texas existed a picture of it could have made it into this video? Please do a Google search before buying into outrageous claims like these. If this existed there would be satellite photos and they would make the rounds on new nonstop. Debunked!

    The United states doesn’t recycle plastic anymore, so putting it in a recycle bin doesn’t make any difference!

    Hellooooo, where are pictures to prove, where satellite imagery? Show the Pacific Garbage Patch! For years I am looking for it. When we make assertions and claim them to be facts, then it should be possible to show real pictures. I hate plastic, and I believe it is a huge threat to oceans and land. But when we want to teach people, then make it believable with a real documentary and original pictures. This is the only realistic video I have found so far , it’s bad enough but no huge patch.

    I know what people are gonna dau, but i swear i have the idea to clean all this up. It uses gravity and flotation to our advantage allowing my idea to successfully collect plastic 24/7 with zero machinery. Plus the idea is so simple it can be rolled out in months. I’ve actually called their headquarters in Norway and left messages. I sent this to the ocean cleanup with no response. I made a video on here asking who can help me share my idea with the right person and got nothing. I don’t know what else to do. I never imagined someone could have the idea to clean this up and then not be able to let anybody know what it is despite all my efforts. It’s crazy to me. And I’m not just gonna say my idea on here for anybody to claim as their own.

    Show me. Where are the photos? Aerial. Satellite. Anything?

    This is like the global cooling, global warming, climate change scare. A lot of BS, but no substantive proof (and no, computer models are not scientific proof).

    Here is some advice for your videos,
    first, you can make it a little fun, or make some picture, i like what you explain, but make it a little fun so it won’t be that boring.

    So in a few years I could walk across the ocean by a plastic bottle pathway?

    Ugh – do we really need the dumbed-down “statistics” to get people to understand this. Talk about “dumbed down”

    Im sorry but even “3 Statues of Liberty” worth of garbage is still miniscule when you consider it is spread over an area the size of Texas. That’s like finding one or two soda bottles every square mile. It’s not ideal, but it’s not nearly as bad as the alarmists have made it sound.

    So who will pay for it? The UN? China won’t do anything(they always does when it comes to regulation). USA wont’t do anything(majority of voters don’t care).

    If every country spent just 10% of its defence budget we could do this. Of course we wont do this but it’s a case of won’t rather than can’t clean it up

    This thing is around the size of Iran, we need to clean this up NOW.

    Sad that we only have 12 years left to fix the problem according to FN and almost every climate scientist says we have 0 precent change to make it in 12 years beacuse the only way we can save or planet is too make humanitys biggest change ever. and then after 12 years it is too late.

    There are people who care there is a machine which is going to start cleaning it up and it made of 100% recycled stuff.

    The last sentence makes no sense. Whether you toss your water bottle in the trash or recycling bin, it’s not going to end up in the ocean.

    If you’re a westerner, don’t feel too much sorry about this oceanic trash problem.
    The vast majority of trash came from china, india and thailand.

    If all others countries completly stoped dumping trashes (and i mean litteraly zero trash) , it will still be minor if thoses 3 countries continue that way.

    The only true responsability we have on this point is a part of their trash is from products and services we order from them.

    Your video could have been better if you show the ACTUAL photage of the garbage patch.
