Which means whole earths living system is under threat thanks to plastic civilization.

Plastic invasions of oceans.

... A Dutch study in the North Sea of fulmar seabirds concluded 95 per cent of the birds had plastic in their stomachs. More than 1600 pieces were found in the stomach of one bird in Belgium...

Greenpeace reports that about 70 per cent of the plastic that makes it to the ocean sinks to the bottom, where it can smother marine life. Greenpeace says Dutch scientists have found 600,000 tonnes of discarded plastic on the bottom of the North Sea alone.

Surely it would be possible to harvest this plastic and recycle it in some way. If much of it is in a big clump then some form of tanker with a big conveyor belt could plough through and scoop it up.

Take a look at your local beach,
What a nice sandy beach it is,
(apart from our local beach`s that are rock and seaweed...)
Pick some dry sand up and let it run through your fingers,
how nice and even the grains are,
(our`s tends to be sticky oozing mud and smell a bit off, and it is best to wear gloves because you dont know what sewerage and chemicals are in it)
Take a real good look at it through a microscope and see what percentage is tiny particles of plastic.
If there are any aliens out there and they did what we are doing, then they flourished for a while, like us,
and then drove themselves back into the stone age because that is all that they had left.
A sad case.
Inteligent life, err, can i get back to you on that one..........

Soon in the next 50 years half of human population might begin to mutate starting from their digestive system since ocean animals or seafood is being already under heavy polluted mutation for the last 2 decades.

Besphinol A a key plastics toxicity compound is literally entered into most peoples blood in the last few decades. And japans have highest rate of Besphinol A in their blood due to their seafood diet and many women there have unusually high rate of miscarages.

Well plastics invasion is kind of serious. I heard in canada they are really fighting with plastics.

I wonder maybe 50% of all beaches are decorated like this:
