Plastic Oceans

Mr. McGuire: I want to say one word to you. Just one word.
Benjamin: Yes, sir.
Mr. McGuire: Are you listening?
Benjamin: Yes, I am.
Mr. McGuire: Plastics.
Benjamin: Just how do you mean that, sir?
The Graduate (1967)
A vast swath of the Pacific, twice the size of Texas, is full of a plastic stew that is entering the food chain. Scientists say these toxins are causing obesity, infertility...and worse. While we were busy trying to kill our oceans and its inhabitants and bury them in a watery plastic graveyard, it turns out the last laugh may be on us. (via The Presurfer)
