May 15, 2017 Plastic Island

On May 15, 2017, NPR’s Camila Domonoske reported “Millions Of Pieces Of Plastic Are Piling Up On An Otherwise Pristine Pacific Island” about the Pacific’s remote Henderson Island. Halfway between Australia and South America, it is accumulating tons of trash every year. The island was featured in Jared Diamond’s book “Collapse” as a sensitive environmental indicator. No word if they accumulated DVDs of Gilligan’s Island, Lost, Lord Of The Flies, Mutiny On The Bounty or volley balls named Wilson.
