EXPLORERS CLUB LECTURE SERIES: Plastic Ocean with Captain Charles Moore

New York, NY (April 9, 2012) - Follow the inspirational story of an un-credentialed but committed "citizen-scientist," Capt. Charles Moore, who will unveil the grim unintended consequences of man’s unthinking love affair with plastics, describing the damaging "plastic footprint" left in its wake. On his routine homeward cruise from Hawaii to California in 1997, Capt. Moore kept spotting plastic scraps and fragments on the ocean surface, which astonishingly proved to outweigh the natural food base plankton by a ratio of 6:1. He learned that insidiously durable and potentially toxic plastics have crept into every corner of our lives, and tumbled by the millions of tons into the natural world where they do great harm to wildlife.

  1. When Captain Moore offers you this book about his incredible story, buy it! Support his foundation, start a fan club, tweet your friends, address your own plastic addiction, encourage plastic-free zones at home, school, church, etc. Get involved and make a difference! If everyone did a little something, that would be huge!
