Great Pacific Garbage Patch — TedX

by Katy on November 6, 2010 · 2 comments

Today illustrates yet again how I am sooo very far from being tech savvy. I agreed to stream the the TedX Conference where my blog-pal Beth Terry from Fake Plastic Fish is speaking about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch today. Sadly, I’ve been having a hard time embedding video into my WordPress blog as of late. I think that I’m doing the same thing as always, yet it just doesn’t work. I’ve studied YouTube videos and looked at previous blog posts that worked, yet I hit a brick wall over and over again.

So click here to watch the live streaming video from TedX.

Addendum: Kristen over at The Frugal Girl snuck into my code and fixed the embed. Another example of her excellence. Thank you, Kristen!

that was a cool little animation before they got into the gyre. One of the problems they don’t mention is all the stuff that is thrown overboard off every ship in every shipping channel in the world. When I worked out at sea refueling I was amazed at what I saw being heaved over the side.

Wow, I had no idea. I am horrified.
