Giant Plastic Island In The Atlantic, Too

Awesome. Just fucking awesome. As if the giant fucking plastic island in the Pacific wasn’t enough, there’s also a giant fucking patch of plastic in the Atlantic, too. For someone who hates sharks as much as I do, you’d think I wouldn’t care. But I do, because these giant fucking islands of plastic and trash don’t go away and we have no idea what they’re going to do to ecosystem of the ocean, let alone the world.

The newly described garbage patch sits hundreds of miles off the North American coast. Although its east-west span is unknown, the patch covers a region between 22 and 38 degrees north latitude—roughly the distance from Cuba to Virginia (see a U.S. map).
