YGTBSM.

Nothing like a little hyperbole and outrageous claims to bolster one's arguments. Nothing damages an argument more than to contaminate with a**crockery.

"We" grow them? Heh.

"The size of entire continents"? Double heh.

Never had those things before the Industrial Revolution. Tell that to De Luna when you see him in the afterlife.

I can see those new multiple choice questions on middle school tests now - "What is responsible for the growth in size and intensity of cyclones?" A. "Plastics in the ocean"
