20. Has anyone thought of the billions they could make harvesting the plastic for recycling?

It's right there for the taking. Just get some industrial sized suction equipment and plow all along the edges. The plastic will stay together because of the ocean currents and all you have to do is pick it up. In time someone could get a huge flotilla of harvesting ships going 24 hours a day for years and years. It's the size of Texas for crying out loud!

There's a great opportunity there!
