    Andrew Forrest did a Ted Talk about Marine Ecology

    **** Totally has nothing to do with Rugby ****

    Did anyone know that Andrew Forrest was studying for his Ph.D.? In Marine Ecology?

    Plastic is an incredible substance for the economy -- and the worst substance possible for the environment, says entrepreneur Andrew Forrest. In a conversation meant to spark debate, Forrest and head of TED Chris Anderson discuss an ambitious plan to get the world's biggest companies to fund an environmental revolution -- and transition industry towards getting all of its plastic from recycled materials, not from fossil fuels.

    I had heard of his Phd and his marine protection passion and donations.
    Well worth listening to that clip on plastic.
    No wonder he says he is a busy boy and does not have time to chair the RA, if he was ever asked to.
