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.

WESLACO - BCFS Health and Human Services on Wednesday withdrew a proposal to turn a Weslaco hotel into a facility for young illegal immigrants. A media release from the group of non-profit agencies cited "negative backlash caused by information misreported to the public" as the reason for walking away from the project. BCFS last week submitted a request for a conditional use permit to relocate its facility from Harlingen to Weslaco. The agency had agreed to use $3.8 million in non-government funds to buy the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites on FM 1015. BCFS sought to turn the hotel into

Last night on Fox News´ Special Report, Kirsten Powers made the case that the kids arriving on the border shouldn´t be treated as illegal immigrants but as refugees. Powers apparently went to the border and talked to some of the kids there and reports they had some harrowing stories of the reasons they made the dangerous journey through Mexico to America. I suspect Powers is right that if more Americans could hear the stories these kids are telling fewer of them would clamor for these kids to be sent home. President Obama probably miscalculated when he refused to go to

Virtually every key House Republican, from Speaker John Boehner on down, has vowed to oppose a conference committee with the Senate´s immigration bill passed last year. And lawmakers working to craft legislation to address the tens of thousands of children streaming across the southern U.S. border say it won´t touch citizenship for illegal aliens, increased visas, or any other topics than border security. But a key veteran of the immigration wars on Capitol Hill is warning that legislation to amend a 2008 law being cited for cumbersome, years-long deportations would theoretically open the door to a conference committee on the controversial

President Obama’s defiant emphasis on executive action reveals a larger failure looming for his legacy: His inability to work with Republicans means that he’s unlikely to score even one significant legislative achievement over the final years of his presidency. Unless Democrats win back the House and hold onto the Senate in November, a scenario dismissed by most political analysts, Mr. Obama has said goodbye long ago to his biggest accomplishments in Congress. They occurred back in 2010, when Democrats controlled the House and Senate, and Mr. Obama signed into law Obamacare, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform act and a two-year extension

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
