“ACTIVIST” In the middle of the Pacific Ocean there is a mass twice the size of Texas formed entirely from the trash of plastic. There is four hundred pound sea turtle about about to swallow what she thinks is a jellyfish.
Scientists have found evidence of an "ancient buried landscape" that was once above North Atlantic waters, the temporary result--at least in geographical terms--of thermal turmoil beneath the planet's surface.
It's hard to imagine the damage over-fishing is wrecking on the oceans. The effects are literally invisible, hidden deep in the ocean. But there is data out there. And when you visualise it, the results are shocking.
