Today’s episode is all about… well it’s abbreviated purposely and designed to agitate your brain. I want you to get angry… Though, before we get to that…


What ticked me off on holiday?


Ok, got to stop: Thanks for reaching out? I want you to pull me up on this if I ever say it…together we can do this.


Its super oily and slimy, sounds like someone I paid to read my tarot cards might say…It sounds clingy, insincere and way too false and flakey…It’s trying too hard to be your friend, and way too early in the conversation by the way to start… well, reaching out…


Can you please email me via my website at shortly to become and tell me if I need psychological assistance, or on the other hand, are you in agreeance with me on this one? What other kind of repetitive verbal battering is rumbling around inside your grey matter?


How about the: “So, here’s the thing…” pre-empting every second sentence. Overused people, and starting to make you sound bit one dimensional if you want to know the honest truth…


Now what really, really bothered me… (cue the sinister music.) I ‘m getting serious here folks…


As Marc Maron would say on his podcast show… What the Fuck?? Or as Mary Steenburgen said on Stepbrothers: What the Fuckin’ fuck? How many miles is it to the deepest part of the ocean?



I’m glad you asked. The deepest part of the ocean is in the Mariana Trench (sometimes called the Marianas Trench), located in the western Pacific Ocean. At its deepest part, it’s just less than 7 miles (6.831 miles / 10.994 km / 10,994 meters) deep.


How many marine animals are killed by plastic each year? Around the world, an estimated one million birds and 100,000 marine mammals and sea turtles die each year when they become trapped in plastic or eat it, perhaps mistaking it for a tasty treat. It is one of biggest threats to all whales and dolphins occurring throughout the world’s oceans.


How long does it take for a plastic bag to decompose in the ocean?


Plastic bags can take 20 years to decompose, plastic bottles up to 450 years, and fishing line, 600 years; but in fact, no one really knows how long plastics will remain in the ocean. With exposure to UV rays and the ocean environment, plastic just breaks down into smaller and smaller fragments.



Plastic rubbish will outweigh fish in the oceans by 2050 unless the world takes drastic action to recycle the material, a report has warned on the opening day of the World Economic Forum (WEF) The share of leakage into the ocean is at least 8 million tones, equal to one garbage truck-full every minute, and research estimates that there are more than 150 million tones in the ocean today. If no action is taken, this is expected to increase to two [truck-full’s] per minute by 2030 and four per minute by 2050,” the report said, with packaging estimated to represent the largest share of the pollution.


In a business-as-usual scenario, the ocean is expected to contain one tone of plastic for every three tones of fish by 2025, and by 2050, more plastics than fish,” it said. A sweeping change in the use of plastic packaging would require cooperation worldwide between consumer goods companies, plastic packaging producers, businesses involved in collection, cities, policymakers and other organisations, the report said.


It proposed creating an independent coordinating body for the initiative. Rather than spend way too much time trying to convince their respective governments… I feel we need to approach this on a different tack. 


How about a company funded by Billionaires (hello Elon, Hey there Richard Branson, Good morning Bill Gates, Whats up Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, are you going to do anything? Can you spare a dime?


If we don’t address this now, and stop pretending it’s high on everyone’s agenda when it’s not, by 2050 you and me and those that follow us will be royally screwed. Irreversible damage, again those two words: irreversible damage. Fuck the oceans and this planet dies… So  Readers and listeners… I need your help. Can we do this I hear you asking? Well, of course we can… you and I, us, fellow human beings, we have a moral responsibility for those that follow us into this life to show them we actually care.


What can we do together? Start messaging me and give me your ideas. Please! If you’re not passionate about this cause, that’s okay, no judgement from Phil Adair. I promise.


If we can build a flotilla of gigantic catchment boats with equally gigantic sifting arms, that roam the ocean 24/7 powered contentiously by solar panels unmanned robotic rechargeable electric Tesla ships, I believe we can absolutely avoid the very real, possibility of global decline.


This is now our greatest ever challenge. Yes, today was a diversion, though I feel a very necessary one. The people we love the most are depending on us folks.That’s it. Let’s do this. I’ll see you soon.
