A Comprehensive Evaluation Model of the Solution to the North Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch
This paper analyzes the formation of the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch and its negative influences. Then, for evaluating the effectiveness and feasibility of these methods, we conduct cost-effect analysis on the economic costs and benefits; and undertake an analysis on the effects of the solutions concerning social benefits; then, establish a comprehensive evaluation model of solutions after combining the economic and social factors, which eventually gives birth to workable policy recommendations.
