From milk jugs to polymer molecules small enough to penetrate human skin or be unknowingly inhaled, plastic is now suspected of contributing to a host of ailments including infertility, autism, thyroid dysfunction, and some cancers. A call to action as urgent as Rachel Carson's seminal Silent Spring, Moore's sobering revelations will be embraced by activists, concerned parents, and seafaring enthusiasts concerned about the deadly impact and implications of this man made blight.
The most dangerous pollution, it turns out, comes from commonplace items in our homes and workplaces. To prove this point, for one week authors Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie ingested and inhaled a host of things that surround all of us. Using their own bodies as the reference point to tell the story of pollution in our modern world, they expose the miscreant corporate giants who manufacture the toxins, the weak-kneed government officials who let it happen, and the effects on people and families across the globe.
This book—the testimony of their experience—exposes the extent to which we are poisoned every day of our lives, from the simple household dust that is polluting our blood to the toxins in our urine that are created by run-of-the-mill shampoos and toothpaste.

Ultimately hopeful, the book empowers readers with some simple ideas for protecting themselves and their families, and changing things for the better. It has become central to processes of contemporary socio-material living. Universalised and abstracted, it is often treated as the passive object of political deliberations, or a problematic material demanding human management. But in what ways might a 'politics of plastics' deal with both its specific manifestation in particular artifacts and events, and its complex dispersed heterogeneity? This book will be of interest to students and scholars of sociology, human and cultural geography, environmental studies, consumption studies, science and technology studies, design, and political theory.
What would you do if this baby was a whale? Terry Tamminen, former Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency, shares his remarkable true story about the rescue of JJ the Whale, a day-old gray whale that was found abandoned in Marina del Rey, California.
He takes us through his incredible journey and the set-backs he encountered, including bureaucratic obstacles, the daunting task of figuring out what and how to feed a 1,pound baby, and finding a safe home for the infant. Not only is this a book about whale rescue, but a touching example of human will and compassion.hostmaster.mixseller.com/85-generisch-zithromax.php
Sullie Saves The Seas: - A Story Coloring Book - Goffinet McLaren - كتب Google
Tamminen introduces us to the various characters involved—many volunteering their time to save the animal, all deeply devoted to saving the animal—creating an emotional picture of the power of human collaboration. Compelling and riveting, Watercolors captures the urgency felt by the people involved in the rescue. At the same time, it educates the reader about gray whales, providing a glimpse into their life experiences. But most importantly, this book is a call to action: although we may not all have the chance encounter of meeting and directly saving a baby whale, our actions and decisions that we make on a daily basis are affecting these mysteriously beautiful creatures.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I love that it's a coloring book as well as packed with information that manages to raise awareness This book has it all One person found this helpful. My three sons and I were introduced to this delightful book by a local middle school teacher.
All four of us, ages 4, 7, 11 and 39, loved the characters in this book and I especially love the important message that this book sends and the lighthearted manner in which it teaches and brings awareness to the increasingly important topic of plastic pollution. Sully gives us hope and includes ways that we can help his mission.
This was a book that had us laughing and cheering and left us thinking about how we can help make our world a better place. Goffinet McLaren brings awareness to children and adults alike and we thank her for this wonderful work.
This children's book brings a new twist to the typical children's book genre. Sullie the seagull is sadly too aware of the many ways humans lose their caring and their manners when it comes to scattering things on the seashore and nearby marshlands that are destroying sea life of all kinds all over the oceans of this world.
Even though Sullie has been around for a long time he is one smart bird when it comes to calling together many hundreds of his varied friends using twitters and tweets and emails and other tools of the Internet. Even very young children have an early introduction to technology and can relate to the somewhat ridiculous concept that the birds use such high tech human means to teach the humans a lesson or two. One by one, Sullie and his friends attack a specific problem, devise ways in which to get even with certain humans they have observed being thoughtless by littering the birds' natural habitats - which, in turn, spreads throughout our world to the sad detriment not only of birds but many other species.
Their plans always involve, by means fair or fowl, returning the offending materials to the habitats of those specific humans even if the humans live some distance from the seashore. The imaginative actions of the birds and the not so imaginative reactions of the humans add to the fun of the story. Everyone loves good guy super heroes who help lead to happier endings! Children especially.

This is a cute, funny book that I think children would love. It teaches lessons about how our beaches and oceans are being turned into garbage dumps. Tremendous amounts of plastic is being carelessly left on our beaches and washed into the ocean to be eaten and ensnarl the marine life caused by our careless.
Good lessons for parents who read it to their children. I happen to know the author and she is dedicated to the environment and talks the talk and walks the walk. This is an important book for all ages. Not only is it well-written and entertaining, it increases our knowledge of an extremely but under-reported problem. Please read. I loved Sullie and his descriptions of how humans trash his world. I wanted to cry along with him whenever he talked about how filthy people really can be.
Gotta read this story!
