This is gross, I wonder if there is anyway that they could ever clean it up?

I am wondering if it isn't that easy. For example he said "it can literally only increase" that implies that for some reason it can't decrease. Hmm, it makes me wonder....

Yeah I don't think we have the technology right now to clean it or anything that we might have might only pollute it further.

Too often when I go to the beach people leave their trash lying around <.< It's so gross. And apparently the threat of huge fines aren't good enough deterents. Though they are hardly enforced.

I know that feeling, every time we are at the beach I find myself picking up our own trash as well as others who have left theirs. It get's pretty annoying.

We pick up others' trash at the beach too. And at country parks or in the woodlands etc. I don't know why people think it's ok to just dump it there.

Here is another video on this, about midway island. They say in the video that they clean up their beaches every few months, and the accumulation of the trash in the video is only 4 months worth.

Ew that's gross! Why can't people just throw their stuff away?
