“The world’s oceans are in peril. Runoff from modern life is feeding an explosion of primitive organisms. The “rise of slime”, as one scientists call it, is killing larger species and sickening people.

A juvenile albatross sits amid piles of plastic on Midway Atoll. Much of the plastic spins off from a rotating gyre of trash the size of Texas in the Pacific Ocean known as “garbage patch”.
