      Re: Your video comment on plastic “Pet peeve”.

      Come to the Pajaro Valley which is adjacent to the Monterey Bay Conservancy to see thousands of acres of plastic used in the production of strawberries, raspberries, blue berries, and so called “Organic” crops. Although most of this huge amount ends up in land-fills (Not a good result in itself!) it is impossible that a significant amount does not end up in the Marine Sanctuary through runoff and careless practices. To add insult to injury local agriculture is dependent on groundwater and has severely over-drafted available aquifers. Because the valley borders the ocean subsidence does not occur. The ocean fills the void with seawater!!! Recharge with precipitation is severely hindered by the plastic covering the soil.
