Great Pacific Garbage Patch Now ‘Two Times the Size of Texas’

Great Pacific Garbage Patch
Great Pacific Garbage Patch (The Ocean Cleanup)

Soon we will be drinking plastics instead of water. ‘Pacific Ocean’ which is known to be one of the greatest oceans covering 30% of earth’s area almost has recently been piled up with 80,000 metric tons of plastic, and it is overgrowing that researcher has renamed it with ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’.

Laura Parker reports for National Geographic; a new study comes out that we can’t imagine.

It broke down the previous record as the plastic concentration is 16 times higher than it was lastly reported. Researchers also told that we have never seen such massive amount of plastic concentrated in a small area.

Researchers first came into contact with Garbage Patch in 1980. Currently, they cover almost 1.6 million square kilometres or 617,763 square miles of ocean.

It is even more significant than Alaska which is the largest state in The US with a total area of 5,70,641 square miles or double of whole Texas.

This massive waste of plastic trash is located between the two most proclaimed cities California and Hawaii. The scientist told that we should stop building plastic or Human civilisation will not run for long.

The ocean contains micro plastics those elements which can be found in Bottled water but with concentration as low as 8%. Almost 50% micro plastics come from fishing nets that may be counted as the reason for increasing Concentration of plastic.

Researchers with the help of advanced technology tried to suppress down the GPGP’s Plastic concentration, and the experiment is going on from last 3 years. A survey recorded that it is growing faster than the Global warning.

To fight through this problem, we need to understand its importance first. The recent test report gave important hint and reason behind this fall.

These hints can be used to invent cleaning technology as soon as possible. But controlling it should be the primary priority.

This rapid increasing cannot be cured over a period of months. A long-term spreading of these microplastics can be double in next decade if it isn’t dealt in present time.
