Re: Garbage Island
We can't do anything about natural disasters but we each, one person at a time, can certainly do something about the problem of pollution in the seas.
I'm not saying we shouldn't each possess the common sense to not throw trash, especially plastic, into the oceans but unless you can get the governments of most all of the Asian nations to start helping a bit it really doesn't add up to the proverbial drop in the ocean.
Your route from HI to AK would have taken you directly through the tsunami debris field so I don't think it would be realistic to not expect to see a lot of trash.
