Dead Zone Earth

Man-made pollution is spreading a growing number of suffocating dead zones across the world's seas ... some 405 [were] recorded in coastal waters worldwide in 2007 [and these] regions of critically low oxygen now affect a combined area the size of New Zealand.

Not to worry : dead zones are good news compared to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which is twice the size of the continental United States.
