Dana interviews oceanographer Captain Charles Moore, one of the leading voices concerning the huge Texas-size patch of plastic garbage gathering in the Pacific Ocean. Captain Moore discusses the sources of the plastic and what we as individuals and as a society must do to take responsibility for the plastic garbage we are creating, to begin the clean-up of the oceans. Captain Moore sings a sea shanty to close the interview.
Dana will appear with Captain Moore at the Blue Festival (Sustainable Oceans, Sustainable Futures) in Mount Vernon on May 12. See calendar below for details.
