Please see #20.
We still track a million or so yellow rubber ducks that pepper the oceans, from a lost container, 1992. They are helpful in tracking global sea surface currents.
If you find one on a beach, you can report it. There are sites still actively tracking.
If you are part of that we, you must be very busy.
The scientific use of them makes sense. Maybe they should have runs of different colors of ducks and drop them in other places in the ocean. If it is called an environmental experiment, maybe Gaia will be pleased with the offering of the ducks, rather than offended by the pollution.
This thing really is a religion for many.
Just open www.outline.com and paste the link into the blank and it will open the page. Has worked every time Ive tried it.
Sometimes I use it just to get a cleaner page even when Im not denied access.
Learned it here on Free Republic.
I have a friend who grew up an army brat and lived over in Germany.
When he was out playing he was in War areas, trenches, and what have you, and he found lots if war junk... a couple of mortar shells included... and he took them home and put them in his room because... kind of a little decoration.
So... when they went to move the movers came to pack them out to transfer their household goods back stateside and they saw the mortar shells and immediately called the EOD who showed up and disposed of them properly.
So he had live mortar shells in his room because “it was cool stuff that you found laying around.”

While soccer Mom’s might not approve, and are right that occasionally there were casualties from mothering techniques in previous generations—we mostly survived. And we have better stories. And we learned how to do stuff.
Ok, the shipping container was in a Cave. How did a shipping container find its way into a cave? And how did it take 30 years for the locals to find the cave? It seems like the locals would have known that the cave was already there?!
Good for you. Same here.
I wouldn’t call it polluted. I would call it changed and dangerous due to unexploded ordinance. But it seems like nature has adapted and is doing quite well.
It’s just more acute disconnected narcissism.
Plastics are toxic? Thank goodness they don't make baby teething toys out of it.
While the ordinance is the big problem for humans, the lead, arsenic, mercury and other chemicals is the problem for everything else. There are places where plants cannot grow.
I agree that a container of Garfields is just an annoyance. Asia and Africa need to tackle their problem with pollution and stop dumping it into the ocean.
Won’t let me read the article.
Where did they come from?.............
Fascinating. I read up on that.
Plastic is largely inert. It will eventually degrade in sunlight and salt water, but hardly constitues pollution in any meaningful sense.
Not that that will matter to the environazis.
