I wonder if Elon come up with this idea during a moment of "inspiration"?
It is incredible to me that people litter the way they do.
I LOVE plastic. But I think it should and could be used responsibly. Not by limiting it's use but by disposing of it properly.
I love that this guy is ....................wait for it........TRYING.
Now I dunno how much gov't funding or what political games are also involved with this project.... but..... Good God. SOMEBODY has to try to do SOMETHING. Scientists sitting back and talking about how it'll fail and what it might NOT do... is just so sweet.
Like, where's YOUR idea? That YOU tried?
Sure, multi-faceted approaches are needed. But starting SOME WHERE ain't so bad.
Changing the temperature of the sea or earth... complicated and tough. Dealing with depletion of species that increasing populations eat... same. LOTSA complex and tough issues out there.... but... litter?
To me this issue seems like a total no-brainer. I don't know why this isn't more of a talking point for ....EVERYBODY, and something that is getting addressed from all angles.
I hope this endeavor is wildly successful. And that it somehow yields monetary profit and fame so that people are encouraged and motivated, and it is repeated and continued.
I would guess how much but it sure seems to me that a huge percentage of plastic could be replaced with biodegradeable material.
I am NOT one of those that jumps on every far-fetched theory as to chemicals causing all sorts of strange human conditions.....BUT....(there's the but) I do know that many problems we experience today (autism, dementia, Alzheimers, cancers, etc.) were NOT as prevalent back when we stored foods and medicines in glass and tin, and not in plastics and aluminum. It just makes me wonder.
Or containers that could be RE-USED...not just recycled.
While we enjoy the cheshire cat grin on our savior moving a pile of trash from one spot to another, we can expect to wake up and find we've been robbed of something else, like affordable clean water...
BTW, now that China no longer wants to buy our trash for recycling, who will accept the Texas/ Oklahoma/ Arkansas/ Louisiana/ Mississippi size garbage pile?
Aw c'mon are you nuts?
Return the containers, wash them, put more soda/ beer/ water/ milk in them and sell them to us again??
Little known fact:
CAPITAL LETTERS take 70% more electricity to transmit than lower case letters. The arm chair environmentalists of the world use three times more Capital Letters than the average person. You think they'd be more careful with their use of this dwindling resource.

We just finished putting 220 mason Jars in the basement just this week. This week was apple pie jam, applesauce,apple butter, apple pie filling, cherry cayenne pepper jam, cherry jam, green Chile’s, pickled banana peppers, jalapeños, stewed tomatoes and salsa. Last week was peach everything and pickled Italian veggies and 3 kinds of pickles. Never counted how many are down there but I sure do like them all winter long ! Have to have New lids but the mason jars last a many a year. My sister has been here for a month helping can and freeze.
I’m not going hungry any time soon
I do hope we figure out a way to eliminate so much waste. It unimaginable!
I saw that. We don’t own the planet, we borrow it from our kids. Good on ‘em for it.
So, does that make you an ANTI-CAPITALIST?
I prefer to think of myself as non-lower case.
If it can do half of what they want it will be very successful. Imagine a pile of plastic twice the size of Texas in the Pacific. It needs cleaning up.
The solution is for consumers to stop buying stuff made or packaged with plastic. Otherwise, we will just have to keep cleaning up the same mess over and over again.
Oh, and BTW, the plastic in the ocean still exists after the cleanup.
Is that pile jacket made out of plastic? Yes it is.
Ive been watching this effort. Glad it’s on the move now. Last I checked they were still testing locally.
My nephew has invented a way to convert that stuff back to gasoline, diesel and naphtha. Send it to him. He runs his diesel truck off of it.
I'd send an incinerator barge out there. You can't really argue that it would create too much heat, you could just cool it with seawater.
