Gathering Climate Change data from NASA NASA have a huge amount of open access climate change data on their Global Climate Change website, including graphs and (luckily for me!) access to the numerical data behind them, time-series images and information.

Plastic Pollution in our Oceans I've been doing some research into plastic pollution. The majority of plastic debris in the ocean ends up one of six gyres, which are a large systems of circulating ocean currents. The largest of patch of debris is situated between two of these oceanic gyres and is called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This is the worlds largest collection of ocean rubbish, situated halfway between Hawaii and California and is now over 600,000 square miles in size. Our rubbish ends up in these gyres as natural ocean currents which regulate climate control, also function as conveyor belts for our waste and pollution.
