ANOTHER FINE MESS

1 LITRE OF OIL FROM 1 KILOGRAM OF PLASTIC WASTE

LET'S EXPLORE THIS IDEA!
I WONDER WHAT THE RESIDUE LEFT IN THE COOKER COULD BE USED FOR.
HOW MUCH FROM 1 KILOGRAM AND WHAT FORM?
WHAT ELSE COULD THAT PLASTIC BIO-OIL BE USED FOR?

IDEA!!! RIG UP A FLEET OF OCEAN SKIMMER SHIPS TO RUN ON PLASTIC BIO-OIL
AND HEAD FOR THE GREAT PLASTIC PATCHES IN THE OCEANS.
POWER THE FLEET WITH THE GARBAGE THEY COLLECT.

Great Pacific Garbage Patch

ALSO KNOWN AS THE   Pacific Trash Vortex

A VAST FLOATING ISLAND OF TRASH.
Estimates on size range from 270,000 sq mi to more than 5,800,000 sq mi or
"twice the size of the continental United States".

The area may contain over 100 million tons of debris.
THERE ARE ALSO NUMEROUS SMALLER GARBAGE PATCHES IN THE OTHER OCEANS AND SEAS.

20,000 Gallons of Exxon Valdez Oil
Still Trapped in Alaskan Beaches

It's been over 20 years since the Exxon Valdez ran into a reef and
spilled nearly 11 million gallons of crude oil into Prince William Sound,
but according to new research published in Nature Geoscience about 20,000 gallons
remain trapped in the gravel beaches of Alaska.



Initially oil was estimated to be dispersing at a rate of about 70% per year,
but this newer research shows that rate to be just 4%.
Because of that high initial estimate beach remediation was stopped in 1992.
