CNN Exclusive: Plastic Island

CNN presents Plastic Island, an exclusive digital documentary exploring the damage plastic is doing to our oceans – and potentially to our health.

CNN got exclusive access to Midway Atoll in the north Pacific Ocean, where the plastic we throw away each day washes up on the beach, works its way into the ocean and potentially ends up in our food. This Pacific island is on the frontline of the world's fight against discarded plastic and its damage to the environment.

From the frontline, CNN’s Nick Paton Walsh, Ingrid Formanek, Jackson Loo and Mark Phillips take a closer look at the toll our disposable culture is taking on the wildlife there – and the health implications for the rest of the world.

This exclusive includes a mini-documentary, a personal essay from CNN correspondent Nick Paton Walsh, an animated video explaining microplastics and graphics illustrating the amount of plastic in the ocean and the life cycle of a toothbrush.

The film explores the origins of the self-help industry, who is offering answers to its followers, and why some are willing to risk so much for guidance. Ray’s appearance in the blockbuster 2006 film, THE SECRET, led to career-changing fame and wealth. ENLIGHTEN US tells the story of his rise, fall, and attempts to return to the $11 billion personal growth industry following his conviction for negligent homicide in the deaths of three of his clients at one of his 2009 events.

Digitally, CNN has developed a look at the personal development industry’s practices, a timeline of events at James Ray’s retreat in Sedona, and excerpts from the film for CNN’s mobile platforms and www.CNN.com/EnlightenUs. FULL POST

CNN TO PREMIERE WAR IN SPACE: THE NEXT BATTLEFIELD AT 9 P.M. EST ON TUESDAY, NOV. 29

ONE-HOUR CNN SPECIAL REPORT HOSTED BY CHIEF NATIONAL SECURITY CORRESPONDENT JIM SCIUTTO

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Nov. 28, 2016 – CNN will air War in Space: The Next Battlefieldan in-depth CNN Special Report on the arms race in outer space – at 9 p.m. EST on Tuesday, Nov. 29.

The one-hour documentary explores the belief by many in the military and civilian experts that war in space is inevitable. The American way of life depends on satellites in space, such as daily commutes, to withdrawing money from a bank, to the soldiers and intelligence agencies defending the U.S. abroad and at home. U.S. adversaries, like China and Russia, are pushing an arms race in space, taking aim at America with a dizzying array of weapons seemingly borrowed from science fiction, from lasers to kamikaze and kidnapper satellites.
