Ocean Fisheries Need Immediate Help (Sink Greenpeace in the meantime)

drifting

Ok, it appears from the alarmism on every topic anymore that one has to elevate one’s crisis to a higher level than everyone else’s crisis. I find that annoying and harmful to people sorting through the Al Gore like bullshit to find true environmental-habitat issues. The ocean fisheries appear to be a legitimate enviro issue given the declining numbers. It appears to be an issue with which the oft vaunted ‘global community’ (gag) can agree on restorative measures to protect and restore fisheries and to form consensus that will actually show improvements. It appears this is being done in areas around the North Sea/Great Britain. I need to learn more about the successes and lapses of these endeavors.

But, Greenpeace thugs, whether on land or sea, need their collective heads cracked. Oh my, can’t say that? Screw them and the ship they road in on. Where in the hell is a Somali Pirate ship when you need one?

The Ocean Fisheries are in peril and the immediacy of the problem appears more demonstrable than many of the perils we are berated upon ad nauseum. This is an issue that eco hand wringers can settle upon; that fisher’s of all stripe can join forces with…careful because PETA will be standing next to you with Greenpeace….

“Such is the human feeding frenzy, there may come a time when there are no fish left to catch. In 2006, a study in the US journal Science warned that every single species we exploit would have collapsed by 2048 if populations continued to decline as they had since the 1950s. By 2003, nearly a third of all species had collapsed, the study found – meaning their numbers were down 90% or more on historic maximum catch levels. Extrapolate that on a graph, and the downward curve reaches 100% just before 2050. That prognosis – now disputed – was based on a four-year study of fish populations, catch records and ocean ecosystems.

We really see the end of the line now,” said the author Boris Worm of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, at the time. “It will be in our lifetime. Our children will see a world without seafood, if we do not change things.” Many imagined a world where there would be no fish protein left to eat apart from jellyfish and marine algae.”

Perhaps a real issue? Most probably a real issue? While you worry about melting polar ice caps, rising seas, CO2 emissions, etc etc..factor in some mental energy for a more demonstrable problem: the ocean fisheries.
