Finally, Someone's Got Video

One keeps hearing about the alarming, continent-sized "island" of plastic rubbish floating in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and yet, where's the video? Why hasn't CNN or NBC or BBC or CBS or someone gone out and videotaped the thing in detail?

Well, CBS hasn't but some little outfit called VBS has. Worth watching, albeit somewhat annoying and clueless narrators (8-9 hrs to fly from LA to Hawaii? On what, a DC-3?).

Here's the link to Part 1 of the video (it's 12 parts long).

Wired Science had a piece on garbage floating in the ocean. They referenced the Great Garbage Patch
