Rhode Island this morning before surfing. Humans are interesting, can't quite figure them out. Buy soda. Chug. Toss out window. Buy balloon. Watch go up in sky. Don't think about where either of them goes when you've had your way with them. This stuff is one storm away from becoming part of our ocean after the street collected them and flushed all of it down the street drains. Human solution is to dump all of our unwanted debris into the ocean to make room for more. Was once surfing in Costa Rica- a jungled portion in the middle of absolutely nowhere and there were MILLIONS of the rings that keep water bottle tops stuck on water bottles washed up on the beach like seaweed. Didn't those litterbugs ever read "The Lorax?"
PS: 4/21/17- I just saw this article in the NYT about how we grind up plastic and dump it into the ocean. I believe NYC hauls garbage out and dumps it into the ocean but I could be wrong. I know they used to.
