Weird! Plastic breaks down quickly in the sea—into toxic chemicals.
Well, crap. I attempted to write a submission for the Shine Anthology that dealt with cleaning up the Garbage Patch. I’d like to finish it, but this throws a huge wrench into my earlier plan. This is why I hate writing near future sf.
I’ve been hearing more about the Garbage Patch. Maybe they’ll finally do something about it. Today on our walk, we did our part to prevent things from worsening. San was picking up a bunch of garbage in the estuary. I saw a plastic bag that I thought I might be able to reach with a stick (me being the tallest one there.) I grabbed the biggest stick around, which was half-submerged and turned out to be approximately half a tree. quantumage
gave me a hand and we wrestled the plastic bag free.
