Remember that article I shared out the 19 year old boy that built this contraption that looks like a space ship to help clean the sea in a matter of years? Well check this out!
“What if there were a way to turn oceanic currents—which can make it so difficult to collect marine trash—from an obstacle into a solution?”
This marine garbage trap, designed by a 19-year-old, could potentially capture nearly one-third of the 7.25 million metric tons of plastic floating on the surface of our oceans. Read more from OnEarth Magazine: http://bit.ly/1eHakmR <- LINK
I think this is brilliant. I think we should consider putting a few of these out there around the world. This can be a wonderful help in getting our oceans clean again so we can see restoration to our oceans. But this is just the beginning of things we need to do to seeing the oceans begin to heal and really regain strength and build life. So much has been taken out of our oceans and a lot has been put in. It will take quite a while to get the oceans cleaned up, but it can happen. We must continue to educated, raising awareness, and continue to come up with ideas like this to help with the current pollution and damage to the ocean. I am thrilled to hear about this boys idea. I cannot believe he is only 19 years old.
Here is the video that was posted on YouTube on the TED page of his TED talk:
