Who first discovered the Great Pacific Garbage Patch?



  1. 0 Votes

    The great Pacific Garbage Patch is the world’s largest ocean dump. The patch is made up of trash, mostly plastics, that has accumulated over the past several decades in the North Pacific Ocean. The patch of trash was discovered by Charles Moore, an American oceanographer. The  trash vortex stretches about 500 nautical miles long along the coast of California past Hawaii, almost reaching Japan. The trash is held in place by a swirling underwater current that has kept the trash mostly together.

    Mr. Moore was a former sailor and the heir to his family’s oil industry. He sold his business interests and decided to become an environmental activist. He warns that people must cut back on their plastic products or else the Pacific Garbage Patch will double in size in the next decade.

    A naval scientist named Capt. Charles Moore discovered a striking visual authentication of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 1997.
