World Business: Indian Plastic Pollution -- 22/04/2011

May 29, 2011
World Business: India is drowning in a sea of plastic garbage; from Delhi to Bangalore the country is littered with tons of plastic waste. An innovative company in Bangalore is developing a process of recycling industrial quantities of that plastic into hard wearing road surfaces, which may be a solution not just to India's plastic waste problems but the whole world's.

Midway Journey: Plastic Pollution & The Oceans

May 29, 2011
(CBC 'On The Coast' interview) We are at a mid-way place. On a remote and isolated island in the middle of the Pacific, twelve-hundred miles northwest of Hawaii. This is a moment in time, a chance to witness and understand our role in an astonishing environmental tragedy. This is a place that provides context. Here, reflected in the beauty of the Albatross, is an unfolding horror. Yet it is a horror in which we see our own lives, a snapshot of our impact on the planet that challenges us to consider how to move forward. Join us, on a breathtaking and emotional journey, into the heart of the Pacific, and into the heart of ourselves. Production of the feature film "Midway" continues through 2011.

Studying How Plastic Pollution Enters Ocean Food Supply

May 29, 2011
From voaspecialenglish.com | http Marcus Eriksen is not really fishing. He is catching plastic in the Atlantic Ocean. Eriksen wants to publicize the growing buildup of plastic waste in our oceans and to study its effects. MARCUS ERIKSEN: "These are five sub-tropical gyres in the world where the majority of the plastic in the world accumulates." ANNA CUMMINS: "The gyre is formed by ocean currents that couple with the spinning of the Earth, the Earth's rotation. And what happens is that you have, effectively, a massive whirlpool, this large spinning system, where debris can accumulate." Anna Cummins and her husband Marcus Eriksen set up a not-for-profit group called the 5 Gyres Institute. It helps researchers with studies of plastic pollution in the oceans. Cummins says plastic bags and bottles have little or no value after they are used. Most plastic waste can be found in solid-waste landfills or along rivers. A lot of this waste also washes out to sea. ANNA CUMMINS: "This becomes a problem in the marine environment because plastics are designed to last forever. They don't break down, they can't be digested by marine organisms and they persist in the ocean for thousands of years." When sailing, Eriksen and Cummins gather objects from the ocean's surface. Hundreds of things they caught have gone to a California laboratory for testing. ANNA CUMMINS: "What shocked me the most on all these trips is to cross an ocean, to cross for thousands and thousands of miles, and find that <b>...</b>

Solusi Istimewa! (revised) - A solution for plastic pollution in Salatiga, Indonesia

May 29, 2011
With the local university, we will create a fifth grade environmental science curriculum that is applied. After teaching this curriculum to public school teachers in Salatiga, we will team up with a pollution awareness art festival to campaign through the schools that implement the curriculum. We will also hold a pollution awareness seminar for the leaders of the communities in Salatiga. The leaders, we will collect money from the community to purchase recycling bins. Communities near rivers will also purchased nets as filters for plastic. The nets will be cleaned, and bins emptied during the traditional community clean up days.

The plastics industry's solution to plastic pollution

May 29, 2011
An interview with a representative from the American Chemistry Council, the main trade organization representing plastics. The ACC pushes "recycling" as the solution to plastic pollution. The best solution is of course reducing our consumption of throwaway plastics, so they don't wind up in our oceans. Watch how many times he repeats "we need to increase recycling opportunities".....

MIDWAY JOURNEY - Plastic Beach

May 29, 2011
In the Greek mythology, Sisyphus was a king who was cursed to roll a huge boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat this throughout eternity. A beach cleanup on Midway Atoll made us feel just like Sisyphus. There are millions of tons of plastics present in our oceans, and these are constantly fragmenting into smaller and smaller pieces which are scattered throughout the water column and present, in different densities, throughout all the worlds oceans. Contrary to what many people believe, there are no visible islands of trash anywhere --even if some areas, the gyres, accumulate higher densities of plastic pollution. In actuality, what is happening is much more complex and scary: our oceans are becoming a planetary soup laced with plastic. To make thing worse, these tiny pieces of plastic are extremely powerful chemical accumulators for organic persistent pollutants present in ambient sea water such as DDE's and PCB's. The whole food chain, from filtering invertebrates to marine mammals are eating plastic and /or other animals who have plastic in them. This means that we are. Like the albatrosses on Midway, we carry the garbage patch inside of us. Cleaning up this mess is not feasible, technically or economically. Even if all the boats in the world were put to the task somehow, the cleanup would not only remove the plastics but also the plankton, which is the base of the food chain, and is responsible for capturing half of the CO2 of our atmosphere <b>...</b>

World Oceans Day Statement on Plastic Pollution

May 29, 2011
Following a presentation to Google employees by Captain Charles Moore, an oceanographer who pioneered the study of plastic debris, the Strategic Council on Plastic Pollution convened at the Google Campus in Mountain View, California on June 4, 2009. It was the first meeting for the council on plastic pollution, which was recently formed to raise awareness of this rising threat to the world's oceans. Said council member and marine biologist Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, We are finding plastic in the stomachs of sea turtles, birds, and fish all over the world. I find this extremely disturbing." In honor of World Oceans Day, the council has issued the following statement regarding this increasingly urgent threat to wildlife and human health: Do you know where our plastic goes? Did you know that our oceans are filling up with plastic pollution? Plastic fragments contaminate even the most remote locations on earth, and harmful chemicals leached by plastics are present in the bloodstream and tissues of almost every one of us. Plastic pollution harms people, animals, and the environment. Plastic is not biodegradable. In the marine environment, plastic breaks down into smaller and smaller particles that absorb toxic chemicals, are ingested by wildlife, and enter the food chain that we depend on. Consumption of throwaway plastics, such as bottles, containers, bags, and packaging, has spiraled out of control. Recycling is not a sustainable solution. The reality is that most of our <b>...</b>

Goffinet's Passion on Plastic Pollution.m4v

May 29, 2011
Goffinet McLaren is promoting a future special event at 7 pm, Thursday, April 15, Oceans of Plastic Pollution--An Eye Witness Account, at Tara Theater, Litchfield by the Sea. She is hosting Pacific and Atlantic Garbage Patch Explorer Bonnie Monteleone, east coast spokesperson for the Algalita Marine Research Foundation. For information, contact McLaren at goffinet@sc.rr.com The throwaway society has gone global and cannot be contained. The world cannot store, maintain or recycle plastic and all such accumulated stuff in its oceans. This is the message of Captain Charles Moore, founder of the Algalita Marine Research Foundation, who spoke Thursday, Jan. 14 at University of North Carolina--Wilmington. He said the market, including recycling and deposit fees, can do a lot. But it can't fix the natural system in the ocean we've broken, he said. These throwaway plastics take a lot of space and don't biodegrade. Only we humans make waste that nature can't digest. Capt. Moores research on plastic pollution in the North Pacific Ocean focused worldwide attention on the area often referred to as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch a vortex-like concentration of plastic pollution, also known as the North Pacific Gyre. Moore first observed this dynamic ocean-current-caused swirling plastic mass, while sailing from Hawaii to California 12 years ago. "There were shampoo caps and soap bottles and plastic bags and fishing floats as far as I could see. Here I was in the middle of the ocean <b>...</b>
