Sounds like a great name for a music title or a movie, right? On NPR radio yesterday I heard that there is more tiny bits of plastic in the ocean than there are plankton now.
At least 10 years ago I read that a scientist who had been studying zooplankton in the ocean was alarmed to find that this base of our food chain was dying off incredibly fast. I don't hear much about it , as important as it is. Now We have plastic occupying space that was meant for life giving plankton. I don't know what's next in the chain. What is just a little bigger than plankton? what hunts and eats the stuff? It will be a little harder for whatever it is now. "Honey, I brought home the plankton. It's on the kitchen table!" Later- "Mr. I don't what you've been drinking but all I see on the table is a bunch of plastic!!" Another plankton Hunting family ends in divorce....

Oh, now I remember what eats plankton. Whales. Maybe we should start harvesting whale turds off the ocean floors. A good source of plastic. Oh I forgot, all the whales could die from consti-plastic-pation.
