ScienceDaily (Oct. 23, 2012) — The sea bed in the Arctic deep sea is increasingly strewn with litter and plastic waste, according to researchers.

The study is published in the advance online publication of the scientific journal Marine Pollution Bulletin by Dr. Melanie Bergmann, biologist and deep-sea expert at the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in the Helmholtz Association. The quantities of waste observed at the AWI deep-sea observatory HAUSGARTEN are even higher than those found in a deep-sea canyon near the Portuguese capital Lisbon.

You think we would at least try to stop doing it.
