How the oceans can clean themselves by Boyan Slat
Static Preview

Published on Oct 24, 2012

18-year-old Boyan Slat combines environmentalism, entrepreneurism and technology to tackle global issues of sustainability. After diving in Greece, and coming across more plastic bags than fish, he wondered; "why can't we clean this up?"  His 2017 speech announcing a design breakthrough is here.

While still being on secondary school, he then decided to dedicate half a year of research to understand plastic pollution and the problems associated with cleaning it up.
This ultimately led to his passive clean-up concept, which he presented at TEDxDelft 2012.
Working to prove the feasibility of his concept, Boyan Slat currently gives lead to a team of approximately 50 people, and temporarily quit his Aerospace Engineering study to completely focus his efforts on The Ocean Cleanup.

The progress of The Ocean Cleanup can be followed here.  On Facebook and Twitter.
Boyan Slat, born 1994 in Delfit, Netherlands, is an inventor, entrepreneur and aerospace engineering student of Croatian origin. His father is an artist who currently resides in Istria County, Croatia.

Portland, Oregon: Train Tankers and Tar Sands Oil
Static Preview

A look at what crosses the Steel Bridge (built in 1910) here in Portland, Oregon a few miles from my home. Is that crude oil in those tankers? As citizens we need to start asking questions that will make our leaders uncomfortable as they may not even be aware of where and when crude oil is moved through urban areas.

Please note:
The New York Times documentary, A Danger on the Rails, addresses the issue in terms of Albany, New York and is in the EarthSayers.tv collection, High Risk Energy Alternatives here. Published on April 22, 2015.

Dead Zones by Oceanographer Jack Barth of Oregon State Univ.
Static Preview

Ocean "dead zones" along the Washington and Oregon coasts are threatening critical U.S. fishing areas. These oxygen-depleted regions, that loose virtually all of their marine life in the summer, are expanding, and new ones are appearing in the Pacific Ocean. Oceanographer Jack Barth of Oregon State University says these new ocean dead zones are different from most of the 400+ others known around the world. While the majority of those are caused by excess nutrients in river runoffs, his research is the first to tie these new dead zones to climate change. With support from the National Science Foundation, Barth is also using an impressive new tool, an unmanned underwater glider that provides round the clock monitoring of these zones. Published September 9, 2012.

First-hand Experience with Plastic in Our Oceans by Roz Savage
Static Preview

Roz Savage, British ocean rower and environmental campaigner, talks about plastics in our oceans, plastic pollution being called a "man-made global catastrophe" in the context of her first-hand experience with the scale of the problem as she rowed, solo, from San Francisco to Hawaii on the first stage of her Pacific Ocean crossing. Roz SavageMeeting up with the two scientists on the Junk craft, they shared dinner and their research with Roz several hundred miles east of Hawaii. Bottom line is we need to use less of it. Each one of us can significantly reduce our use of plastic and make a positive difference in the world. More information about Roz at www.rozsavage.com. She was interviewed by Ruth Ann Barrett of EarthSayers.tv, voices of sustainability. Published on Jan 28, 2014
