The new interactive website Adrift, based on ocean circulation research and the Global Drifter Program, tracks where our plastic crap and other bountiful garbage will travel over ten years. Its tone is jaunty - think rubber duckies - but Fukushima and its ongoing terrors, along with what you can do about them, lurk.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
