    Not Of This World

    Up to 20 million tons of debris from Japanís tsunami moving toward Hawaii, U.S.

    Some 5 to 20 million tons of debris--furniture, fishing boats, refrigerators--sucked into the Pacific Ocean in the ake of Japan's March 11 earthquake and tsunami are moving rapidly across the Pacific. Researchers from the University of Hawaii tracking the wreckage estimate it could approach the U.S. West Coast in the next three years, the UK Daily Mail reports.

    Doesn't it just sink and stay on the bottom? Does it move across the ocean floor? If it is floating why would it take three years?

    I believe they're talking about "floating" things (one of the items they picked up was a fishing boat) and it would take approximately three years because it's moving with the current / tide.

    Remember when the tsunami hit and the west coast got it's back lash? Now it's going to get it's debris over the next few years or so.

    Why can't they send salvage ships to pick it up. Anything that can be recycled could be sold to help finance the mission.

    The future has many names: for the fearful it's the unknown, for the reckless it's the adventure, for the pessimists it's the unattainable. For the brave, it is opportunity.
