Don’t get me wrong. I’m against littering, and I think we should do our best to keep the Earth neat and tidy. Still, some environmentalist reports seem a bit over the top.
DaTechGuy offers some real world facts and figures related to the (*gasp*) 268,940 tons of plastic reported to be lurking in the world’s oceans. He points out that’s less than the mass of 3 modern aircraft carriers. I’ll add this factoid: There is roughly 74 billion tonnes (that’s the metric kind) of uranium dissolved in the oceans.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSxihhBzCjk]
