NEW Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Updated: 5:48 PM 8/12/2009
The News is In
Researchers Finding Much More Plastic than Expected

It’s hard to imagine finding plastic garbage fragments and bits throughout the huge Pacific Ocean. But, researchers are doing just that. From the very start of their journey, they are netting plastic with every tow sampling.

Images below: See the plastic bits floating in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, thousands of miles from land. The Scripps Institute Research vessel is reporting its findings.

Giant Floating Garbage Patch: The Scripps Institute Reseach vessel has officially reached the huge “Great Pacific Floating Patch” in the Pacific Gyre.

Today, they report finding much more plastic than expected. In fact, they are finding it everywhere, even from the beginning of their voyage.

One of the observers describes what they are seeing: “It is a soup of bits, pieces and strands. If you look out over the water you see a beautiful cobalt blue ocean. If you look down you see a little bits of things that were once important to someone probably 1,000 miles away…

Most of the water has plastic in it. With the obvious and already stated fact that the ocean is huge, it is the job of the scientist to put the numbers into perspective…”

They are collecting small feeder fish, expressing concern that the small feeder fish that are eaten by larger predator fish may be eating fragments of plastic, thus absorbing chemicals and toxins directly into their systems. Since we eat the larger fish that feed upon these feeder fish, we would be ingesting these pollutants from our seafood.

This seems to be a more serious problem than they had imagined. Although they are glad they were able to reach their destination, discover exactly what they were looking for, they find themselves somewhat somber and a bit depressed having seen the severity of the problem.

They also are reporting via CBS 8 that a large number of sea turtles, birds, mammals and fish sea life are dying due to the marine debris.

The researchers will be investigating ways to clean up the “toxic mess.”

Project Kaisei Embarks to Investigate the “Dump”

Sylvia Earle “Explorer-in-Residence”
National Geographic, Mission Programs

“Solving a problem starts with knowing that you have one. Project Kaisei vividly shows how discarded plastics are clogging the ocean, causing a major problem for the planet’s vital “blue heart,” entangling marinelife and insidiously killing as it accumulates in the food chain, from tiny plankton to great whales. Best of all, the mission highlights hope with ideas for positive action.” http://www.projectkaisei.org/

Note: The Project Kaisei team will embark on a multi-week expedition to the “Plastic Vortex” from the West Coast in order to:

– Study and document the marine debris found in this area of the Pacific Ocean;

– Test catch methods for removing the debris;

– Conduct research on the chemical interactions of marine debris in the gyre and select fishes and wildlife related to persistent organic pollutants (POPs);

– Understand the needs required to undertake an eventual large scale clean-up of the waste material;

– Test technologies for conversion into an economically viable by-product: diesel fuel.”

A giant, almost endless plastic soup extends
a wider distance than the length and breadth
of the United States, right smack in the middle
of the Pacific Ocean.

Capt. Charles Moore of the Algalita Marine Research Foundation first discovered the Great Pacific Garbage Patch -- an endless floating waste of plastic trash. Now he's drawing attention to the growing, choking problem of plastic debris in our seas.

UPDATE 9:37 AM 8/4/2009 – Scripps Embarks…

Scripps Scientists Aboard Research Vessel to Study Huge Garbage Dump
“From August 2-21, a group of doctoral students and research volunteers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego will embark on an expedition aboard the Scripps research vessel New Horizon to explore the problem of plastic in the North Pacific Gyre.

The Scripps Environmental Accumulation of Plastic Expedition (SEAPLEX) is the first of its kind and will focus on a suite of critical questions. How much plastic is accumulating, how is it distributed, and how is it affecting ocean life?

The researchers hope to provide critical, timely data to policy makers and combine Scripps’ long tradition of Pacific exploration with focus on a new and pressing environmental problem. ” http://seaplexscience.com

Capt. Charles Moore of the Algalita Marine Research Foundation first discovered the Great Pacific Garbage Patch — an endless floating waste of plastic trash. Now he’s drawing attention to the growing, choking problem of plastic debris in our seas.” (Link from the Oprah Show)

This plastic “continent” stretches a distance wider than the United States and can be 90 deep or greater in places. It’s growing by leaps and bounds due to extensive plastic waste cast off by a “throwaway” mentality of the world’s consumers.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Garbage
From Askmen.com

  • There’s a continent of garbage in the Pacific gyre. (Gyre: swirling center region of the ocean’s currents)
  • There’s garbage all over Mt. Everest – it’s “notoriously filthy.”
  • Some garbage can live a million years… or more.
  • Landfills pollute worse than… chernobyl. Then expel vast quantities of toxic gases.
  • Plasma” can obliterate garbage. (Discovery Link to Plasma Gasification)

See more about Plasma, below.

According to Charles Moore, garbage growth is so extensive that the expansion of this island of trash seems virtually unstoppable, and may eventually, sooner than later, choke off the world’s fish supply.

Currently, over 90% of the world’s larger consumable fish stores are gone, depleted.

In addition, if the destruction of plankton is severe enough, oxygen levels will diminish and the world’s atmosphere is at risk.

There are many foreseen as well as unforeseen repurcussions to the huge accumulations of non-biodegradable waste in the world’s oceans.

Animals are indeed dying in record numbers exceeding hundreds of thousands. Seabirds feed their young colorful plastic bits, and the baby birds die a slow death. Sea mammals perish in netting and plastic coils and strips and die from poisoning as well.

Almost all fish are becoming contaminated with plastic bits and chemicals – even the tiniest fish. As Charles Moore says, “You can buy certified organic produce, but no fishmonger on earth can sell you a certified, organic, wild caught fish.”

The only solution: To stop the plastic at its source. It would be impossible to clean up the ocean. No country or power has the money or wherewithal to remove even a small proportion of plastic trash.

It is the only hope, but Charles hold’s little hope that we can change.

PLASMA: It’s working in other countries
“Since 2002, two commercial waste-to-energy plasma gasification plants have been operating successfully in Japan.

The Mihama-Mikata facility processes 24 tons of municipal sold waste and 4 tons of sewage sludge per day, producing steam and hot water for local use.

The Utashinai plant processes up to 300 tons per day of waste and/or automobile shredder residue.

This facility produces up to 7.9 Megawatts of electricity, of which 3.6 MW are used to run the plasma torches and the plant, and up to 4.3 MW are sent to the electrical power grid.

In Ottawa, Canada, people are evaluating a demonstration facility that is currently processing 94 tons of waste per day, sending 4 MW of power to the grid.”

Note: This technology has been scaled back in the United States by 80%. Why is that? Could it be that it’s not “profitable” enough and the “greed” factor isn’t attractive to investors?

Or, perhaps the technology would impinge upon the profitability of current technologies.

Astounding Image Man & Whale

Astounding Image of Man and Whale

A Right Whale follows and observes a swimmer in the waters of the Auckland Islands. He turns his head carefully so as to bring his plate sized eye within inches of the diver. He is so gentle that he barely disturbs the water… with the merest flick of his tail, he could have sent the diver spiraling uncontrollably or crushed him like a bug.

Whale gently follows and observes a diver, eye to eye. He carefully turns so that his eye is within inches of the diver's mask.

Right Whales: On the Brink, On the Rebound

From National Geographic: “Just a few hundred of these giants survive along the coasts of North America, but their numbers are growing in southern seas.”

Quotes from the photographer, Brian Skerry (Full Article HERE):

“I’ve been diving for about 30 years, and I can honestly say that I’ve had some amazing encounters with sharks, squids, and other whales. But the encounter with the right whales in the Auckland Islands was probably the best thing I’ve ever done. It was just that amazing.

…I immediately suited up, jumped in—and these city buses swam up to me…

I’m standing on the bottom, and as it comes down, I get on my knees, lean over backwards—my scuba tank is now digging into the sand.

And of course their eyes are on the side of their heads, so it had to turn and look at me. It came within inches.

Here’s this softball-size whale eye looking at me. But then it stops—stops on a dime. It’s just hovering there, and literally one flick of its tail, and it would have crushed me like a bug. But it doesn’t. It was just highly curious.

…Instead of continuing, the whale stops and turns and waits for me. It was like a dog that was following me around …the whale would follow me. It was like swimming around with a friend.”

Absolutely HEARTBREAKING if GQ Magazine Article is true. Evidently Michael Jackson was framed by Jordan Chandler’s father – decide for yourself – full article here: http://tiny.cc/mjframed

Also – 40 beautiful night time pictures of Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch – one is above and one below. Even though the photographer thought they might be eerie, I see them as being particularly poignant and sad. The photographer describes his visit, and how he believes Michael Jackson is innocent of all charges. A tragic story, indeed, of a man hounded and false accused… he lost his ranch, he had been invaded on overtaken, and his heart was broken. Here’s the link to the Slideshow by Tunnelbug at Flickr:
http://tiny.cc/nvrland


Michael had such dreams, hopes, fantasies about finding his boyhood. He was such a sweet, precious child, and for all the wealth he accumulated, he was not ever able to find his “Rosebud.”

Beautiful Slideshow MJ’s Kids

MSNBC has a beautiful slideshow of Michael Jackson’s 3 children. It’s true that privacy is an issue, but they are the progeny of one of the world’s most popular entertainers and will remain in the public eye for possibly the duration of their lives. They will be loved, revered, and always remembered as Michael’s children. Click on image below to go to the full Slideshow at MSNBC.

Good or bad, right or wrong, we will all see these images. Many will want to see these beautiful children of someone we truly cared about. We will wish them the best, and hope all the court battles will end soon and leave these little ones in peace.

It was a dilemma whether to post this slideshow. But, in all honesty, I personally wanted to see these pictures and found them very special and very precious.

Michael Jackson is an icon, and his children are the closest remembrance of him. They were the most important people in his life and will always be thought of as closest and most cherished by the King of Pop, one of the world’s greatest and most famous celebrities.

CUTEST MONKEY PICTURES EVER!

Update: 1:22 PM 10/8/2009Little Elke, just about one of the cutest little monkeys you will EVER see, is thriving and beginning to explore the outside world. She has graduated from her nursery and has taken her first steps in her tropical rainforest exhibit at the Taronga Zoo.


Elke a four-day-old Francois Lemur Monkey – Very Rare
Estimated Less than 1000 left on Earth

Adorable Video with Sweet Musical Background : )

 

Con’d from above:

Louise her surrogate mother says that little Elke is “very inquisitive and loves to explore and is full of energy and very active.”

“During her outside forays she is accompanied by an ever watchful keeper as well as hot water bottles to keep her warm as the cooler weather approaches and like all newborns, her favourite teddy bear remains close by.

“She actually has quite a few ‘favourite’ soft toys, and can often been seen snuggling into them, leaping on them or using them as a launching pad to explore another area of the exhibit.”

Elke’s outside adventures take place when her Langur parents, first time mother ‘Saigon’ and father, ‘Hanoi’ who sadly rejected her at birth are inside their dens watching on. This allows Elke the opportunity to become familiar with their scent, taste the leaves that the adults also feast upon and become familiar with the area which will eventually be her fulltime home.

The infant’s birth was a delightful surprise for keepers who discovered the bright orange baby in her parents’ exhibit in early March. It is not uncommon for first time animal parents to reject their off-spring and with as few as 1000-5000 François Langur individuals left in the wild, Taronga’s expert keepers stepped in to hand-rear the infant.

“There really have been no difficulties with her, she has been a model child, although her human parents are a little worse for wear, we are very sleep and literally moved into the Zoo to bottle feed and tend to Elke’s every need,” said Louise.

“As she gets older, things are getting easier. Her last feed is now at 9:30pm, which is much more civilised; initially we were getting up every two hours! Now with a full set of teeth, she has started to test out solid food including olive, poplar and fig browse and tips the scales at 680 grams, an average weight for an infant François Langur,” said Louise.

Taronga’s primate keepers will carry on hand-rearing Elke for many months and continue the slow process of reintroducing her to her parents. These remarkable dark-haired primates are quite unusual eating only certain variety of leaves. Francois Langurs inhabit tall riverside limestone crags in tropical monsoon forests.

Cutest little monkey you’ve EVER seen – this tiny little Francois lemur baby is extremely rare and endangered. She’s bright orange, looks like a super cute little Ewok, super bright eyed, curious and playful. Precious beyond words…

‘Elke’ the four-day-old hand raised Francois Leaf-Monkey is shown for the first time at Taronga Zoo in Sydney. The Leaf-Monkeys native habitat is Northeast Vietnam and Southeast China

Elke is a bright-eyed five-day-old monkey who needs to be hand raised by staff at Taronga Zoo because her mother is not sure what to make of her… but she will be re-introduced later to see if they can be reunited. Her mother is very young and inexperienced, without benefit of having other monkeys around to learn from.

Born last Thursday, this wee little palm-sized francois langur monkey is making do with a warm quilt in place of her mum’s belly and chest, which she would otherwise be in constant contact with, primate keeper Mandy McLellan told AAP.

So far the bright orange leaf-eating monkey is doing well.

“These 3 month old little Orangutans are at the ICU (Infant Care Unit) at the Bukit Merah Orang Utan island. Tucked away on the 35-acre Pulau Orang Utan, Orang Utan Island is the world’s first and only 5-acre rehabilitation and preservation facility where Orang Utans roam free. The unique island serves as a breeding sanctuary as well as conservation, research and education center to better understand this endangered species.”

Stuffed Puppy or Real? : )


Do you not want to just hug and kiss this little guy to pieces? (Not REALLY to Pieces – just an expression… : )

Forgive me, but I think he’s the cutest puppy I’ve ever seen… Period.

So cute and surreal! Did you do a doubletake? … Did you think he’s a super duper cute stuffed animal of unparalleled craftsmanship? Surprise! He’s real…

Someday he will be stalwart fellow of 200 pounds of pure rugged good looks and carry brandy in a jug for stranded mountaineers. : )

(Please note that scientific research has proven that brandy for freezing mountaineers is only a mood elevator, not temperature elevator. However, a 200 furry St. Bernard lying beside you is a giant warm wonderful cushion of comfort. : )

In 2005 the non-profit Barry Foundation took over the breeding kennel from the Hospice at the Great Saint Bernard mountain pass (2473 metres/8114 ft. altitude) to continue the 300-year-old tradition of breeding the famous dogs, which return to their origin on the mountain pass during the summer months.

Pigeon and Monkey


Baby Macaque Monkey and White Pigeon Find Each Other in Refuge in China

This is an absolutely extraordinary picture… A little infant macaque is “taken under the wing” by a white pigeon on China’s Neilingding Island in Guangdong Province.

Evidently, this little 12 week old baby monkey was separated from its mother and faced certain death until rescued by a refuge worker.

The story is that the baby was inconsolable until he was befriended and nurtured by the white pigeon, another resident of the shelter. It seems the pigeon understood the baby needed him or her.

They have become inseparable friends. The image was shot by Jianbin Huo of China, a photojournalist. Hopefully, the two will be allowed to spend as much time as possible together.

Macaque monkeys are very intelligent, sensitive and loving. They hold lifetime memories of family and tribe. This little baby may hold love and memories forever for his little friend.
