    This is so sad. The world is in massive trouble. Humans are so destructive.

    Simple solution-quit putting your trash in the ocean!

    Very sad. I really don’t see an end to the damage we will do. As selfish as it is, I am glad I am old.

    I wonder if they throw the trash back into the ocean or if they actually take it with them and dispose of it properly.

    7.7bn people in the world all using resources and creating trash. Bigger issue for me than warmer summers. Take some responsibility and have less kids.
