If the current actions contributing to a multifaceted degradation of
the world's oceans aren't curbed, a mass extinction unlike anything
human history has ever seen is coming, an expert panel of scientists
warns in an alarming new report.
The preliminary report from the International Programme on the State of the Ocean
(IPSO) is the result of the first-ever interdisciplinary international
workshop examining the combined impact of all of the stressors
currently affecting the oceans, including pollution, warming,
acidification, overfishing and hypoxia.
“The findings are shocking," Dr. Alex Rogers, IPSO's scientific director, said in a statement
released by the group. "This is a very serious situation demanding
unequivocal action at every level. We are looking at consequences for
humankind that will impact in our lifetime, and worse, our children's
and generations beyond that."
It will take more than feel good deeds to save the ocean. It will take deeds that do real good. What is shocking is how many self proclaimed environmentalists aren't willing take on or even speak about routes of action that will result in positive outcomes for the state of the world's natural resources. Bummer. Now, enjoy the wine and cheese.
