News from the Natural World: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is replaced with the Great Pacific Turtle Patch. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a huge patch of ocean plastic, trash and waste. It is created by the merging of ocean currents and the wastefulness of humans. In fact it is so large that the entire state of Texas could fit into it. The patch is made up of millions of pieces of rubbish, micro-plastic and all the things humans throw away. It is a perfect mirror to humans complete idiocy and destruction of the natural world. A huge and obvious metaphorical microcosm of the fast paced throwaway consumerism of modern humanity. Because it remained undiscovered for so long it was able to grow and grow. Every year more and more trash and garbage would gather. Scientists set out too research and analyse this human monstrosity. They tracked its growth rate every year so they could try and understand it. However what they found recently initially shocked the world. They found thousands and thousands of turtles all gathered in the garbage patch. Everywhere they looked there were turtles. Green Turtles, Leatherback Turtles, Hawksbill Turtles. You name a turtle, it was there. The scientists looked on in shock. They immediately radioed their research base and told them the news. Once the world media had caught on the news just spiralled. People wanted to change the name of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch; “We told you rubbish and plastic were good for the ocean!”
