This video is about an island in the ocean at 2000 km from any other coast line. Nobody lives, only birds and yet, you will not believe what you will see here.

 Please don't throw anything into the sea. Unbelievable, just look at the consequences.

Thanks Babs, I really cannot understand our stupidity. We must all know by now the dangers we cause to the "natural world" but we keep on trying to destroy it with our thoughtlessness & carelessness & the " I don't care, I am alright jack " attitude.

It isn't just throwing directly into the sea. You only have to look at our streets & pavements. Rubbish strewn everywhere. it gets washed/swept into the gutter, goes into the drains, then from there into the rivers & streams and kills the wildlife there, then gets washed out to sea & goes thousands of miles away, around the other side of the world & continues to kill off everything it comes into contact with.

I doubt the locals to that area will ever stop bunging stuff into the sea, or chucking it overboard from their fishing boats.
I intend to live forever. So far, so good - But, too many Birthdays can kill you.

There aren't locals in that area
all the crap comes from USA & Europe, as well as Asia

the Midway Islands are in the middle of the Pacific over 1000 miles from any other land or islands and is one of the most isolated spots on this planet http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midway_Atoll

Ah, I see.
Perhaps a lot of it came from the Japanese Tsunami......possibly ?.
A lot of it must come from the surrounding countries, and after having a quick google some from shipping containers lost overboard during rough storms.
However it is a big problem around that area, that I can clearly see.
