Postcards from the lost continent

Via TreeHugger we find this video of a chap called Charles Moore doing a TEd lecture about plastic waste and how it ends up at the North Pacific Gyre.

Now previously I've mentioned that it would be a prime location to build an artificial island with a plastic-to-oil plant on it and just let the raw manterial float in. And as Charles moore mention in his talk, it's too expensive for one country to filter the oceans, so as I suggested previously, farm it out to an army of World of Warcraft types controling radio controlled boats. Get them to build the thing, get them to scoot round filtering and collecting debris.
