Put the world to work cleaning up the world

Virtually the entire world could be put to work, including all military forces and equipment, around the world, with each country playing an important part, utilizing everything we do and produce for living and life, by working together, without any one country in charge or military running the show (they will be told what to do), cleaning the seven garbage patch islands choking and killing ALL our oceans. Breaking them up, removing them and recycling or destroying them. The cause is all of us. The solution takes all of us. Manpower of every sort, clothing, fuel, machines, recycling, destroying, transporting, feeding, medical, education, etc. Virtually all we do will be in action, as each supports another adjacent part that it relies upon or relies upon it. We all rely upon each other but most importantly, we rely upon this earth to support us and we must clean it up.

These garbage islands are killing the oceans. Make no mistake about it.

We also use the billions of us to clean up all the trash that is choking all of our ecological systems, from rivers, lakes, beaches, streams, streets, forests and so on. We could have it done in a very short time considering there are billions of us to shoulder the labor and those who work in the industries of providing the things we need, do so. They provide them, we provide factories for incineration, destroying, recycling and so on and it goes on down the line until it closes and we are all supporting one another, around the globe.

Or maybe keeping the oceans alive is not much of a priority.

I tried this once before and received no responses so I guess it isn't.
It's all just talk.

By the way, it wouldn't cost money. It would cost people, it would empower people worldwide and it would help wean us all off the corrupt, unjust and polluting monetary system.
