Good news: Pac garbage patch much smaller

There have been other threads on the Pacific garbage patch here. It was reportedly twice the size of Texas but new evidence reveals it to be a small fraction of that size, and dispels most of the other wild claims about it. Nice to hear from a real oceanographer with first had evidence and observations. Here is the link.
