    Turns out the emails were going to my hubby’s email account, since he set up amazon, so he fixed it and voila! I now have trilogy! From what i have read so far this guy is an R-rated comedy for Scuba.

    Thirdly,
    Thanx for all the support diving friends.
    On a positive note; please kill your kids by buying plastic from a shop or fueling your car...
    The afterlife is full of fish with unpolluted stomachs, ommm.
    Goodbye cruel world.
    See you in the next paradigm.

    Very mad, Francesea, especially after watching 'a plastic ocean'
    Frigging ridiculous what's been allowed to happen unchecked.
    I was in Blackpool last year watching people leaving all their styrofoam shite on the beach that just got washed away when the tide came in.
    Some poor beach in Ireland probably gets it.
    You seen the film?
    The seabirds stomach bits are particularly horrific.
    :(

    Yes, i saw the film and i agree the bird tummy was pretty bad, but from what i understand, normally birds swallow rocks and shell shards and keep these in their gizzard to grind the fish they swallow whole. This tidbit was not mentioned in film.
    Do all birds have gizzards?
    I redoubled my efforts to use less plastic and to recycle and push recycling through our community, which is hardcore into recycling anyway. What i have seen in other documentaries is that ten rivers in the world are carrying 90% of the crap into the ocean, so setting up a “sieve and sort” at those location while educating those countries is what is desperately needed now. These 10 Rivers Are Responsible for 90 Percent of the Plastic in the Oceans
    Locally, Many SCUBA Divers get involved in beach cleanups and Scuba cleanups, but for scenes shown in Plastic Ocean, that problem calls for Asian/ African local regulations and requiring local business and advertising community involvement, just as we had to do in USA.
    Also, plastic micro beads in toothpaste and other hygiene products should be banned, might have already. THAT is getting into human stomachs direct from the tube. People like the softer grit instead of nasty tasting baking soda grit from old days.
    Meanwhile new, biodegradable “plastic” containers/cutlery have been developed, and they will be ramping up production world wide.
    Have you read Neal Stephenson’s book Zodiac? Rockin’ Mystery, but has serious themes about pollution and fish. He wrote famous Snowcrash, but i thought Zodiac was even better.
    Maybe your next book series will have a protagonist that travels world wide damming up plastic rivers for funsies.

    Ye, biodegradability is the way forwards. I wouldn't be so concerned about landfill if it all decomposed within a reasonable timescale!
    Thanks for the book tip Francesea, I'll look em up.
    As to the future novel, I'm planning a trip to Pakistan to do some diving. I'll probably annoy some people while I'm there. Then if I can raise enough funds I'll set sail for Pitcairn, where I look forwards to annoying some more people. After that, it's gonna be the final one based in America, where obviously there's at lot of people to annoy.
    With guns.
    And dubious environmental habits.
    :)
