I strongly agree with Philip R. when he wrote about ocean pollution in his article "Ocean Trash". People dispose of trash into the ocean way too often. We should start to realize our mistake and work on it. This quote "there is an area of marine debris in the Pacific that is twice the size of Texas.", shows the amount of pollution people have caused by leaving their trash in the ocean. Its overdue time that everybody starts to do their part and dispose of their trash the most enviornmentally friendly way they can find. This issue is out of hand and is causing substantial damage to the ocean enviornment. Many animals are dying due to our ignorance. We need to step up and clean up. Thank you Philip for bringing this issue to the communitys attention, hopefully you have woken up some people.
