Scientists think we have to do more to keep garbage out of the ocean. OK, that's a duh.
But that's the way science works, sometimes we need big studies to show the obvious. Now the National Research Council, in a study directed by Congress, says the ocean garbage problem is getting worse, and plastic junk is the biggest problem.
Unless we act strongly, we'll see more ocean garbage in the future, not less.
What's an ocean lover to do. Picking up trash won't solve this problem, we need to eliminate garbage before it gets to the ocean.
