80 seconds with Sir Robin Knox-Johnston: Episode Five, How do we look after our oceans?

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston gives his thoughts on pollution at sea and discusses the damage to the ocean environment with Dee Caffari

Anyone who spends time at the coast will understand the level of pollution in the sea. Plastic is everywhere and has become a huge issue affecting the aesthetics of the coastal environment, wildlife’s habitats and contaminating the food chain.

However, 50 years ago plastic was just becoming a main stream construction material, so the ocean environment was fundamentally different. How has Robin seen this change and what does he think the major cause of plastic pollution in the sea is? What should the world be doing to resolve the current mess we find ourselves in?
