The disgusting continent

There's a new continent floating over the Pacific Ocean, it's the 7th continent now and it's made of rubbish specially of plastic waste. It's located somewhere in the middle of California and Japan and it's even called the "Pacific Island of Garbage" that has incredible terrifying dimensions. It's calculated that that island occupies between 1,7 and 3,4 million square metres..which means an area of 18 to 37 times bigger than Portugal!!!
The french explorer Patrick Deixonne lead an expediction to that island of rubbish at 2 May 2012 to alert the whole world for the danger of the massive production of waste and its disposal are causing in the marine ecosystems.
