Posted Tue Oct 28 2008: from Honolulu KHNL:
Researcher warns: "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" is out of control
An environmental warning tonight from the man who discovered a vortex of plastic trash floating in the Pacific Ocean. It's twice the size of Texas, and still growing... Moore discovered the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 1997 while sailing in the Trans Pacific Yacht Race to Hawaii.
