    My work on plastics in the world's oceans shares the same origin as climate change. It's all about exploiting fossil fuels for energy (CO2) and chemistry (plastic). We live in an age of over-consumption with no responsibility for outcomes. We must enter the Age of Restoration for our collective quality of life.

              Ocean 180 2015 submission: An expedition left from Hawaii and traveled to Vancouver, Canada in July 2011. They traveled through the North Pacific Gyre (NPG) where ocean currents create the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The ocean in the NPG is like any other patch of ocean the plastic is hidden until a fine mesh net is dragged through the surface of the water. The pieces are the size of a grain of rice or smaller and found in concentrations as high as 219,585 plastic pieces/ km2. These tiny plastic pieces harbored microorganisms like bacteria and diatoms that were revealed with a scanning electron microscope. The trouble with these tiny pieces of plastic is that they provide a home to transport microorganisms across whole oceans. If these microbes are able to survive they could harbor invasive species, micro algae overgrowth or harmful algal blooms, and disease vectors that cause harm to coastal marine ecosystems. by Kate Carroll and Rebecca Ziegler Mahalo to Dr. Jason Adolf and Cat Spina for taking time for the interviews and Hawaii Wildlife Fund for transportation to Kamilo.
