'Great Pacific Garbage Patch' gets even grosser?

Is that possible? Looks that way.
An AP story in the San Jose Mercury News says: "Over the past four decades, the amount of broken-down plastic has grown significantly in a region dubbed the 'Great Pacific Garbage Patch.' Most of the plastic pieces are the size of a fingernail."
The Christian Science Monitor reports that it is: "a large patch of mulched up plastic and other garbage, often said to be the size of Texas.
Wow, even grosser: Many news outlets are reporting that the giant pile of trash is letting certain marine bugs get a little out of hand.
What a world and why aren't we doing more to preserve it's wonder?
