The Ocean is a Garbage Dump

My heart sincerely goes out to all those affected by the Malaysian Airlines flight that is currently still missing. I would happily go into why I find it appalling that it is just so easy to disable a tracking system in a plane but that’s for another day.

They keep on searching the ocean and what has been turning up – is garbage. All sorts, from the mere plastic bag to giant pallets of junk and trash. Huge pieces, little pieces, just your basic junk pile.

My question is – why aren’t all these ships out there searching for a plane, picking this stuff up when they find it? Why is it okay to just turn a blind eye to the fact that our oceans are a reservoir of stinky, sun damaged everything?

Why can’t all these countries searching for a plane come up with a way to cooperate to clean up the oceans?
