Yes I understand its a concern, Just when you look at the problem you see most of the trash is coming from other places then the USA.

How could anyone not being concerned about this major source of food for our fishermen and local economies? We have to reign in the pollution with reduction of plastic bags and with regard for sealife

There is a floating landfill called trash island that is almost the size of Texas. Miles and miles of trash.

This is a global problem regardless of the source. Biodiversity is essential ...for live (HUMANS too), we have to protect the place that gives life.

How can any sane, intelligent person not be concerned when we see a "garbage island" the size of Rhode Island in the middle of the Pacific; when we see dolphins ensnared in netting, etc.?

95% of all ocean plastic pollution comes from 10 rivers, 8 in Aisia, the other 2 in Africa. The USA contributes about 1%. htps://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4970214/95-plastic-oceans-com

The top polluters China and India are the ones who need to be held accountable not the US. Focus on the real culprits.

Most of the issue comes from third world countries that don't take care of their garbage properly and last report was 40% of plastic in the ocean was from FISHING NETS. there's work to be done but our focus is in the wrong place.

The media is breathless concerning plastic in the ocean. Eventually all the plastic breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces. When small enough, bacteria use it as a food source.

I enjoy the track and field events. The traditional events are what the Olympics are about. Beach Volleyball and all the other Johnny Come Lately events are not traditional and not what the Olympics are about to me. I know others will disagree with me. I feel sorry for you.

No chance! I watch the Olympic to watch the athletes compete with the best in the world. The American athletes have degraded the Olympics to a political statement! Complete waste of time!!!!

It is too boring. Too many athletes have made it political just as football and the rest. They don't deserve to be in sports if they can't keep it to just sports.

Don't really watch any sports except golf and maybe a hockey game and will not until they quit being political and bring sports back just for the game. Tired of athletes and celebs telling us what to do and how to think.

I realize not all US Olympians hate the US but those that do have ruined the events for many of US. If you weren't alive at the time of the 1968 Olympics when George Foreman jogged around the ring with the the American flag you can't imagine the pride we felt.
