Matt Simon is the author of the book: A Poison Like No Other, How Microplastics Corrupted Our Planet and Our Bodies.

He traces how the plastic we are using and discarding breaks into ever smaller pieces that poison water, soil and the atmosphere. Scientists have found micro plastics in the deepest ocean trenches and in snow of the North and South Poles. They are in our food, and from there travel though our bodies. And most plastic is made from a mix of toxic petro-chemicals.

Matt Simon has been a science journalist at Wired magazine for nine years. He covers a range of beats, including biology, robotics, climate change, and of course, microplastic pollution.

The Surfrider Foundation is a grassroots non-profit environmental organization that works to protect and preserve the world's oceans, waves and beaches. They held the ZOOM with Matt Simon on Jan 23, 2024.
