Horrified by the pollution in the Pacific, Richard Mariner and Nic Greenbaum finance an experiment – to throw a bottle into a Tokyo river and track it out into the ocean.Meanwhile, Richard’s wife and Nic’s daughter will race across the ocean captaining rival yachts fighting to reach the bottle first – unaware that they will be tested to the limit. To generate extra publicity, the bottle is filled with lottery tickets, any one of which could be worth $110 million.But as it whirls towards the centre of a floating garbage patch the size of Texas, a rumour begins to spread that it contains the winning ticket. So the experiment becomes a deadly game as lethally dangerous players become involved. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Tudor.

Junk Raft: An Ocean Voyage and a Rising Tide of...

An exciting account of an activist scientist's unorthodox fight in the growing movement against plastic marine pollution and of his expedition across the Pacific on a homemade "junk raft". Over the past several years, the news media has brought the Great Pacific Garbage Patch - the famous swirling gyre of plastic litter in the ocean - into the public consciousness. When Marcus Eriksen cofounded the 5 Gyres Institute with his wife, Anna, and set out to study marine pollution, they found that the reality is even direr: instead of a stable mass of litter, they discovered that a "plastic smog" of microparticles permeates the world's oceans, defying simplistic clean-up efforts. What's more, these microplastics and their toxic chemistry have seeped into the food chain, threatening marine life and humans alike. Far from being a gloomy treatise on an environmental catastrophe, though, Junk Raft tells the exciting story of Eriksen's fight to raise awareness and solve the problem of plastic pollution, contributing to a fast-growing movement to stem the tide of trash. Eriksen writes of his voyage from Los Angeles to Hawaii aboard his homemade "junk raft", and along the way he recounts the successful efforts to fight corporate influence and demand that plastics producers take responsibility for a problem they've created. Eriksen provides concrete, actionable solutions and an empowering message: It's up to bold, brash, unapologetically activist "citizen scientists" to challenge the status quo for the sake of the planet. 1.

Mark Hawkins, former park ranger and expert tracker, is out of his element, working onboard the Magellan, a research vessel studying the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. But his work is interrupted when, surrounded by 30 miles of refuse, the ship and its high-tech systems are plagued by a series of strange malfunctions and the crew is battered by a raging storm. When the storm fades and the sun rises, the beaten crew awakens to find themselves anchored in the protective cove of a tropical island...and no one knows how they got there. Even worse, the ship has been sabotaged, two crewmen are dead, and a third is missing. Hawkins spots signs of the missing man onshore and leads a small team to bring him back. But they quickly discover evidence of a brutal history left behind by the island’s former occupants: Unit 731, Japan’s ruthless World War II human experimentation program. Mass graves and military fortifications dot the island, along with a decades-old laboratory housing the remains of hideous experiments. As more crew members start to disappear, Hawkins realizes that they are not alone. In fact, he suspects they were brought to this strange and horrible island. The crew is taken one by one, and while Hawkins fights to save his friends, he learns the horrible truths: Island 731 was never decommissioned and the person taking his crewmates may not be a person at all - not anymore. 1.
