It is twice the size of Texas.
It is floating in the Pacific Ocean 1000 miles off the coast of California.
It is not affectionately called the Garbage Gyre I.
It is usually called the garbage patch by mariners.
Scientists recently took a close look at this northern garbage continent, and were shocked; but now we find out is has an evil twin.
Scientists will now go to the even larger southern garbage "continent" next, Garbage Gyre II, where they have been afraid to look up until now:
"We're afraid at what we're going to find in the South Gyre, but we've got to go there," said Tony Haymet, director of the Scripps Institution.(Scripps Paper, PDF, see this and this too). The use of the phrase "the consequences of humanity's footprint on nature" shows the continuing ignorance and erroneous duality in the mind of far too many people.
Only humans are to blame for ocean debris, Goldstein said. In a blog entry posted a day before the science ship arrived in Newport, Ore., she wrote the research showed her the consequences of humanity's footprint on nature.
"Seeing that influence just floating out here in the middle of nowhere makes our power painfully obvious, and the consequences of the industrial age plain," she wrote. "It's not a pretty sight."
It is as if they think nature is some separate entity we can do things to without consequence to us, instead of the truth that we are nature, so to the degree that we harm "nature" is the degree to which we harm our species.
Obviously humanity is failing in the goal of long term survival, because to be able to do that the Tenets of Ecocosmology must be adhered to.
UPDATE: Some disabused children of Catholics and loving it are into the cover-up game all over again.
They can't be happy enough with covering up the rapes of children, so now they are covering up the rape of the Earth?
It figures, they are Oil-Qaeda's priests.
