Is the Pacific Ocean becoming a vast wasteland?

Captain Charles Moore, founder of the Algalita Marine Research Institute in Long Beach, CA, has joined me in a discussion on the world's garbage and says, "The Away Inn is FULL!"


Find out what he means by that, and Moore, as we talk about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which he also discovered floating in the North Pacific Central Gyre...it's estimated to be twice the size of Texas!

I ask the question, "what can we do about it?" ...the answer may surprise you!

His new book Plastic Ocean is available as a download, and all a part of his phlosophy, and mine, to reduce waste...a great guest and one who easily identifies with this Culture of Garbage!
