Worlds largest landfill...in the ocean?

Think Hawaii is far enough “away” to find pristine shores? Not so fast.....read this account of a massive aquatic trash heap washing up on the Islands, leaving a trail of plastic crap and fishing gear in its wicked wake.

Further supports the idea that “pristine” wilderness is a thing of the past, as shown here in this excellent slideshow by one of my favorite projects shifting baselines.
