Science: Charles Moore: Saving Our Oceans from Plastic
Like a synthetic siren, The Great Pacific Garbage Patch drew Charles Moore to science; now his research raises deep questions about plastic. Capt. Moore first encountered the 2-million-square-mile floating landfill by chance in 1997, as skipper of a catamaran; his discovery turned him into a scientist/activist, and prompted a global reassessment of plastics' invasiveness. Moore, author of Plastic Oceans, chronicles his investigations of our ocean's plastic load along with the skepticism, controversy, media attention and, ultimately, scientific credibility he met along the way. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with the Sierra Club, Pacific Science Center, and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
