Captain Charles Moore

In his presentations and new book, Plastic Ocean, oceanographic research vessel Captain Charles Moore chronicles his scientific investigations of our ocean’s plastic load aboard ORV Alguita, an his impassioned, fiercely unorthodox style of working that results not only in authoring peer reviewed articles in scientific journals, but run-ins with skeptical officialdom, controversy and the media glare of New York and Hollywood TV shows like Nightline, Late Night with David Letterman, the Colbert Report, and National Public Radio broadcasts.
