Plastic Bag Fantasy Island Vanishes
Like Atlantis, Scientist Corrects
Million-Ton Floating Estimate

PJ Media, by Scott Ott

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/4/2014 12:41:10 PM

The scientist whose findings environmentalists used to shame us into bringing our own reusable bags to the grocery store now says that his estimate of one million tons of plastic floating in the ocean may have been off by a factor of perhaps 143. His latest estimate ranges from 7,000 to 35,000 tons, and even most of that has biodegraded into granules. Cózar’s team didn’t find country-size islands of plastic bags strangling baby birds and sea turtles. It found “micro plastics.” What people think of as a dump doesn’t look like floating junk. Instead, ocean current “convergence zones” are swirling

Comments:
What a shock, the eco-terrorists were wrong again. s/o It is funny to read that birds recycled plastic bags as nesting material that: "no doubt reduced moisture incursion and boosted the R-value of their insulation..." I have a Morning Dove that builds her nest every year above a brick pillar on my front porch. I´ve never seen her use plastic bags but I do have to regularly sweep twigs off the porch!

The GOAL is to having us believe NOTHING and trust NO ONE. Americans resigned to permanent suckling will turn over the keys to the kingdom to vote buyers.

But at the other end of his current estimate, he may have only been off by a factor of 28. Regardless, this is not science at work, but environmental kook alarmism.

I almost always use the plastic grocery store bags; they are more sanitary than the reusable cloth ones (which have been found to accumulate germs if you don´t wash them), and I can "recycle" them for use in the small garbage cans around the house. I do have several of the non-cloth bags from the store I frequent, but I mainly use them in the car to keep the plastic bags with the groceries contained; otherwise they can get heavy if you put too much in them.

The environuts who claim that 10s of thousands of sea animals are dying by eating ocean trash have "no empirical evidence" of their new, much lower number. Does the trash island scientist have any empirical evidence of his new numbers or are they made up like the global warming computer fantasy models?

These idiots think science ends with their speculations about the world. Any dope can (and does) make up opinions about things. Science is doing all the hard and sometimes VERY long work of proving it. Or disproving it. Most speculations are wrong to some degree.

Only off by a factor of 28 to 143 times. He needs to buy a clue. He probably wants the taxpayers to give him money so he can study the situation further.

Birds are much smarter than we give them credit for. Our town went plastic shopping bag-less about two years ago, community being full of enviro extremeists welcomed it. I invested in a box of 1,000 plastic shopping size bags via the internet at a very small cost, and keep one in each of my re-usables to contain meat,fish or any other sloppy/smelly item. The check out clerks are happy to oblige.It does help minimize the contamination risk.

Somewhere there is a bacteria that is learning slowly but surely to eat plastic bags - plastic bottles and styrofoam. There is quite of bit of energy stored in those molecular bonds, and where there is energy an organism will develop to utilize it.

I´ve seen too many fabric bags being brought into grocery stores and they have ´´curous´´ stains on them that have dried there for a long time...like bllod staians from meat pacj=kages! They are nasty! Most grocers have very nice bags that are reusable for many other things, other than reuse them fro groceries. About the only grocery store that carried horrible grocery bags is KROGER. You can´t reuse them and usually your stuff is double bagged because it don´t last for the trip home from the grocer without getting holes in them. But grocery bags I reuse fro many things but NOT to the grocery store!!!! YUK!!!!

They are called enviro-freaks for a reason.... and freaks freak-out, and then freak out about their freak-out.

Pay no attention, or fight them at their every utterance. They are always wrong.... I can´t think off-hand of a single time they were right about something.....

They placed nails into tree trunks so that loggers would be injured when their chainsaws hit the nails. The spotted owl? They - uh - FLEW to other trees to nest.

That´s how it works.....

For a group of people who believe in evolution, and not Creation, or even Intelligent Design, they seem to believe no species can survive without their help.

Bag Island.... bah. (I do, however, cut all closed rings from the plastic that holds 6-pack sodas together so that birds and fish don´t get caught, cut, or strangled by them.... that´s about it for my environmentalism).

Plastics are made from hydrocarbon petrochemicals. As demonstrated in the Valdez and BP oil spills, the sea tends to break down hydrocarbons over time. That is: the planet has its own "recycling" process.

That said: common sense should prevail in our handling of such waste. There is a "middle ground" here.

A slew of recent court victories for gay marriage proponents across the country, including two from federal appeals courts, have amped up speculation the Supreme Court soon will revisit the issue. Since the Supreme Court last year struck down a key part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, all of the more than 20 federal and state courts that have addressed the issue have ruled against state bans. Those rulings remain in various stages of appeal. More than 70 cases have been filed in all 31 states that prohibit same-sex marriage. Nineteen states and the District of Columbia allow

Talk of impeaching President Barack Obama, which gained steam when Sarah Palin gave voice to it three weeks ago, has started reaping dividends for the Democrats. Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Steve Israel (D-NY) said Tuesday that Republican musing about impeachment and House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) planned lawsuit against Obama over the delaying of the ACA individual mandate had compelled Democratic voters to donate.

That’s according a press release put out by the foundation on July 17. The Freedom From Religion Foundation is a militant atheist group, truly an enemy of religious believers and everyone else who values the freedom of religion.

HOUSTON, Texas--Bell County, Texas, has spent almost $200,000 so far this year on detainers, or "immigration holds," for illegal immigrants. Detainer requests from federal immigration officials require local law enforcement to hold illegal immigrants, detained for local charges, past the length of their jail times. Typically, the holding time is 48 hours. During this time, federal agents decide whether or not to deport the individuals. The federal government does not reimburse Bell County Jail and other local detainment facilities for immigration holds, according to KDH News. The local media outlet reported that each inmate costs the Bell County jail $67.35 per day;

The Texas-based nonprofit Catholic Charities is currently seeking out foster families for the migrants, most of whom come from Central America. Ruth Braiser, a spokeswoman for the organization, told Breitbart Texas that foster families can receive monthly payments for housing adult immigrants who are under 23-years-old.

Earnest placed the calls on Monday to four letter writers to invite them to dinner with Obama on Tuesday when he arrives in town. "Hello is this Becky?

A statement put out today by President Barack Obama on the occasion of a religious holiday is raising some eyebrows. The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease. In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to

Former presidential nominee Mitt Romney would win the popular vote if a rematch of the 2012 election against President Obama were held today, a CNN/ORC poll has revealed. According to the poll, if the 2012 election were held again today, Romney would receive 53% of the popular vote, and Mr. Obama would receive 44%, CNN reported. Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the actual election. The poll said, however, that the former Massachusetts governor would lose against Hillary Clinton by double digits in a hypothetical election. Mrs. Clinton would earn 55% of the vote, with Mr. Romney at 42%.

GAZA CITY — The conflict in Gaza raged on Sunday, even as both Israel and Hamas offered brief truces and President Obama pressed Israel for an “immediate, unconditional humanitarian ceasefire,” reflecting growing concern over the rising death toll. Israel denied Sunday that it was responsible for one of the most shocking attacks in the 20-day conflict, saying its soldiers were not behind the deaths of 16 Palestinians killed by shelling three days earlier as they sought refuge in a U.N. school near an area of intense fighting. Israel’s military, however, offered no details about what it called a “comprehensive inquiry”

A leading drug policy researcher, David Murray, has a must-read piece up at the Hudson Institute website, "Comparing Marijuana and Alcohol: Seriously." Murray´s article is a devastating deconstruction of claims that marijuana is relatively safe, or at least safer than alcohol. And, as he points out, it thereby undermines much of the basis of the New York Times´s blithely irresponsible editorial endorsement of marijuana legalization. Read Murray´s whole piece. Here are highlights: It’s a remarkable weekend when one finds the Grey Lady arguing for state’s rights, and worrying huffily about arbitrary Presidential powers.

President Barack Obama is practically weepy at the thought of his daughter Malia going off to college, a milestone many months away that is already on his mind. Malia barely reached up to her father´s shoulders when they moved to the White House nearly six years ago with her mother, little sister and grandmother. At 16, she stands nearly as tall as her 6-foot-1 dad and is visiting college campuses in preparation for that bittersweet day in the fall of 2016 when she trades her White House bedroom for a dorm.

You can understand President Obama´s current political problems -- and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall´s midterm election -- in a single word. And that word is "competence". Obama was elected in 2008 on a stated promise that he would restore competence to government. He pitched himself as the antidote to "Heck of a job, Brownie" and the Bush years, the person who would always put the most qualified candidate in every job in his Administration. That the basic functioning of government would never be in question. Almost six years on from

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee angered his Facebook fans after endorsing Sen. Lamar Alexander against conservative state Representative Joe Carr last month. Carr has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham for the August 7th primary. And Carr has been relentlessly hammering Alexander for voting for the Senate´s amnesty bill even after law enforcement officials warned Alexander that it would lure more illegal immigrants from Central America. Nearly every one of close to 450 comments beneath Huckabee´s announcement on his Facebook page blasts Huckabee for supporting Alexander. One Huckabee fan said, "We
