Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

No use Fighting !

Entire world produces 280 million tons of plastics , every year

Of this , some 20 million tons finds its way into world's oceans

Rest finds its way into ugly land-fills

A very tiny percentage of this has accumulated at one spot in Pacific Ocean

It is called Great Pacific Garbage Patch , , covering an area , twice the size of United Kingdom ( approx 500,000 Sq Km )

Since most of this is non-degradable , it will continue to float for 50 years

Hundreds of scientists and governments are working for years to find a solution to this problem of cleaning up the ocean by removing floating plastic

But the solution is evading !

Use of current method of skimming will take several decades to clean up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch

But if some method can be found to ,

*  Increase the thickness of the patch to several hundred feet

*  Bind the loosely floating plastic with some glue / resin , to turn it into a
    strong land like mass ( of course , still floating )

*  Build onto this light weight pre-fabricated homes

then ,

it could become a Nation of 126 million inhabitants ( twice the population of UK , since Pacific Garbage Patch is twice the area of UK ) !

Of course , if this method succeeds , 280 million tons can create an entire continent , the size of Europe ! Every year , too !

May be scientist can even find a way to tow it away anywhere  !

For EU threatened with an influx of a million migrants every year , this could be a much cheaper - and humanitarian - way of housing them

Much cheaper than what Elon Musk / Mark Zukerberg / Jeff Bezo etc are spending on Space Missions to locate inhabitable distant Earth-like planets !

Why spend billions of dollars on finding ways to bio-degrade plastics ?

Just find a way to " Re-Use " it for benefit of poor people !

Call it USM ( United States of Migrants ) !
