Ocean Talk Friday – Keystone Pipeline Leak and Blue Planet II Plastic Pollution

Keystone Pipeline Spill South Dakota Plastic Pollution Blue Planet II


Ocean Talk Friday is all about dealing with human issues (as much of marine conservation is!). I start off today by talking about a 210,000 gallon oil leak of the Keystone Pipeline in South Dakota last week as well as some news about the Keystone XL pipeline construction.

Next I talk about how we should use science communication for conservation via the Blue Planet II series and their assumption that a pilot whale calf died of toxins related plastic pollution in its mother’s milk and how one scientist (and some conservative websites) picked up on the inaccuracy.
