Presentation by 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. 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 plastic's invasiveness. Moore chronicles his investigations of our ocean's plastic load in his newly-published book, Plastic Ocean.
Moore will be speaking in Port. Angeles at The Landing Mall, Upstairs Conference Room, 115 E. Railroad Ave. Port Angeles, WA 9363
