Something The Entire World Should See Most Of Us Are Simply Unaware

Something The Entire World Should See  Most Of Us Are Simply Unaware

September 25, 2013 - North East of Hawaii, the ocean currents form a giant whirl pool of debris from around the Pacific, the scientific name is called the North Pacific Gyre. Its one of the largest ecosystems on Earth, comprising of millions of square kilometres. Today its better known as The Great Garbage Patch, an area the size of Queensland, Australia where there is approximately one million tonnes of plastic spread throughout the ocean. Drag a net in any area of this part of the ocean and you will pick up toxic, discarded plastic. Photographer Chris Jordan has documented this phenomenon.

I had been studying for quite a while the phenomenon called the Pacific garbage patch. I was looking for a way to visualize it, it was really surreal to land on Midway, seeing that my worst hopes of what I would find there are true. These are all albatross chicks, hatched out of their eggs and the very first meal they got was deadly to them. What happens is, when the eggs hatch one of the parents goes out and flies looking for food. They search over this vast area of the pacific and when they come back with is a belly full of toxic plastics, and they feed that to their babies. They die of starvation, malnutrition and chocking. Simply allow yourself to feel whatever it is you feel about this, without jumping to the way to solve it. Because I think we really need to feel these things, even if the feelings are uncomfortable, because those are the feelings that will turn into the fuel and drive passionate action Chris Jordan

The desire to change these things will put the human race on a journey to do so, and we are in the midst of it.

    Very sad,,,,we are destroying our planet and everything on it,,,,
    I think we are past the point of no return,,,,soon,,,we will all be suffering like those birds,,,
    dying from radiation,,,carcinogens,,,chemtrails,,,the list goes on and on,,,
    I dont think we are giving future generations much to look forward to,,,,
    It will take a huge effort to repair,,reverse,,or change our ways,,
    \and I honestly dont think enough people care to make a change ,,,,
    Our planet is a living entity,,and sadly we are slowly killing it,,,
    Please do your part to take care of Earth,,,,
