PLASTIC OCEAN How a Sea Captain's Chance Discovery Launched a Determined Quest to Save the Oceans

by | Read by Mel Foster

Contemporary Culture • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

It’s evident that Captain Charles Moore is passionate about educating the public about plastics, in particular the growing menace of the plastic debris that is choking the Pacific Ocean. However, the author's passion is not well served by Mel Foster's narration. His pace is too slow, and his delivery is not engaging enough as he discusses the production of plastics, the effects of plastics on humans and marine creatures, and research efforts focusing on the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Moore's work is an alarming call to action to preserve marine ecology and to raise awareness about the problematic nature of our throwaway society. But Foster's narration does not go far enough to hold the listener's attention on this important topic. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2011]
