Re: We Killed the Pacific Ocean

I remember reading an article by Thor Heyerdahl, about his being shocked at how much more pollution he found in the ocean in 1969 and 1970 voyage on Ra and RaII , than he found in 1947 on Kon-Tiki. Even taking into account the fact that it was different bodies of water, he found a lot more pollution in the second trip.
On the northern Gulf of Mexico.
