frank1971ification : why not just empty the ocean and fill it up with new water? my local hardware store has a water pump half price this week

Taikamuna : *Let's put plastic into the ocean to clean plastic from the ocean*

fuck off : Finally somebody using money wisely than just spending it for v bucks

Trang Hoàng : i'm not a professional on ocean trash picking 101 but this guy gave up college and started working everyday for years at an age which many people just spends their days partying themselves to death. fine, you may find a hole in his solution just watching a video of it but he deserves all the money you guys make just because he's trying to do something about it.

dbltrplx : I have a better idea, how about if WE STOP THROWING SHIT INTO THE OCEAN!!!!!

Just Bodewes : All the donators received a plastic bag full of plastic goodies.

Neyjina : The real question is how you get the micro plastic...

LeoAngel67 : $25 million in his pocket and $5 million for the actual project.

Ofentse Mwase Films : This won't work, the main problem is human beings, so long as they are on Earth, the ocean will remain dirty.

Daniel Pietnik : 30M raised to clean the planet. and yesterday an asian guy bought a painting for 110.5M ...... what a joke rich people are.

Savior .S : Is there an update to this? We're half way through 2018, and curious if this has been tested yet

Blake P. : The pipe is made out of plastic lol😂

Werner Bruin : Don't see the floating pipe idea being very effective in during tropical storms or when ships drive over it. A better idea will be to free all the dolphins held in captivity and train them to clean it up. I need 35 mil to free the dolphins and buy baskets. Anybody want to invest in my idea?

Larkspur : Doesn't cover the deep stuff and the micro-plastics though. I expect more plastic goes in the ocean each year than we are taking out of it anyway. We need a find a way to destroy plastic and stop using it completely. Then figure a way to filter the micro-plastics out. This method will only buy some time to be honest.

Naft : if you look closely, you can see that theres no evidence that the project working

Performing Dog : why dont we just empty the ocean and pure new water into it? wtf people just thinkkkk

akaJRob : Ok so where’s the plastic from the ocean gonna go now ? I say we just send trash to space

Ambuk FX Fx : urmm its 2018 now.. soon 2019.. sooo? any update ?

Da Fukq : Waste of money cus u will clean like 0,0001% of the ocean with that

Mesozoic : Anyone know how this thing is doing now?

Sandy Hooker : the reason we have shit in the ocean to begin with is corporate greed. It's cheaper to dump shit in the ocean than deal with it in other ways, even if only marginally cheaper. If you made it universally illegal for corporations to pollute the ocean, and consider it a terrorist crime to do so, i doubt we would need this machine. But gl with that, since corporations decide the rules lol. Lets just watch the world burn together friends.
