A CBF "Making Waves" webinar

Join Dr. Fred C. Dobbs, Chair of Old Dominion University's Department of Ocean, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences for a discussion on plastics, microplastics, and their environmental impact. Dr. Dobbs considers global budgets of plastic and plastic waste, concerns about ingestion of microplastics, and some known unknowns of microplastics' effects on organisms, including ourselves. He concludes with stories from business and science that may improve some of our world's "plastic overload" and shares his efforts to reduce the plastic in his life.
