WaPo – The big environmental problem highlighted by the search for Flight 370

“Officials leading the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane are now focused on deep-sea signals that could be coming from the passenger jet’s black box. But five weeks into the search, there is still no trace of the plane’s wreckage. Instead, the search keeps turning up practically everything but the plane: hundreds of large objects shown in blurry satellite images, and pieces of fishing equipment and other flotsam examined by ships sailing in the area. If nothing else can be learned from this bizarre hunt, one thing has become clear: There’s a ton of trash in the Indian Ocean.”
