At Yellowstone National Park, the clear soda cups and white utensils are not your typical cafe-counter garbage. Made of plant-based plastics, they dissolve magically when heated for more than a few minutes.

When I was a kid all the garbage from the bay area was dumped into the Potato Patch via barge off the Golden Gate. The Dungeness crabs were about two feet across at the carapace because all the garbage was actually food. In the mid fifties pager and plastic packaging led to the dump at Candlestick. Now the crabs barely get to 6".

You mean you still have some Dungeness crabs left? After overfishing of all but the tiniest specimens and intrusion by Mittens? I'd say a 6" crab is miracle!
