The Ocean Cleanup project is revealing its limitations

    I'd like to see what plans are made for the plastic it catches too! The crossover between collection and recycling.

    imagine what he could do if money from the budget was diverted to help him with a much bigger fund than $20 million and gets fellow Engineers helping him.

    Somebody blame coca cola for example. They are doing nothing to help this.

    I think if it just floats around it will just float along the other plastic and not really concentrate. here my idea, got a few clicks also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URy9WSZUyFQ&t=20s

    Maybe they can ask amazon for new funding.. Most of the trash maybe.delivered by them rather than spending billions on how to go to other planet or moon

    This needs to be approached as a military operation by the military.

    Why aren't the billionaires pumping serious money into this? Why try to repair historic buildings when we should be focusing on repairing our environment or there will be no future.

    Don't be so pessimistic. It's to be expected that problems would arise, and require modifications. All financed by donations - a wonderful project with enormous possibilities. Well done everybody.
