Is the 'Great Pacific Garbage Patch' just a myth?

Glenn Beck

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.

Have you ever wondered why you can't find a photo, video or satellite image of such a colossal collection of flotsam? Pat Gray (filling in today for Glenn Beck) thinks he's found the answer. 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.
