CNN: 20 Million Tons of Trash in the Indian Ocean
I just saw a man identified as an “expert” interviewed on CNN about missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370. (Erin Burnett’s show “OutFront” @ 7:28 p.m. ET) He said there are roughly “20 million tons” of trash in the Indian Ocean and that it — the Indian Ocean — is basically a “plastic soup.”
Way to go humans!
Maybe the disappearance of MH370 will have a silver lining in that the search educates people about how we’ve turned our oceans into trash cans.
(The “expert” wasn’t identified while I was watching. I’ll try to get more info and or/video.)
