No doubt you've heard of the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch," the gargantuan accumulation of ocean debris that has grown from an estimated 3 million tons in the early 1990s to "twice the size of Texas" in 2018.

According to an article on Slate, the myth of the monstrous garbage patch was made up to call attention to the problem of pollution and "save our Oceans."
Watch the clip above to get Pat's take.
