I hope its not too late to save the Oceans...Before the Green idea took off recently,tankers used to clean the tanks at sea,thousands of tons of sludge oil went overboard, and it is said by seamen that there is a ridge of garbage running from Europe to America,when Passenger ships dumped all the waste while crossing to and fro.Now there are 1000's of containers on the Ocean floor from ships losing them in bad weather.I guess we are leaving a Garbage legacy to our Grandkids to solve.I'm not surprised that sea life is failing due to our not caring attitude.

Overfishing and other destructive factors may be pushing the world's oceans towards disaster.
Well, we know it's coming.  We just don't know exactly when.

But the good news is that with protection and good management, much of the ocean can still recover.  It's purely a matter of politics.

  The problem is Doug,that Politicians are more worried about climbing the power ladder, and trying to put one over the opposition in Congress or our Parliament, to worry about a few hundred 1000 fish dying.Its politics that are polluted,and only the ordinary people can change that.

My prediction, based on events so far, is that no effective action will be taken on any of the significant environmental crisis we face. Nature will impose a readjustment on society, not the other way round.

I agree with this.  I think eventually mother nature will get fed up with us humans messing up her oceans and land.  And then mother nature will kick our arses.

It appears to me that is all we do to/for them: deliver sadness.

And yes, I also could not watch this video with dry eyes.

But next morning most will have forgotten what they watched the evening before.

It's a sad and stupid world we live in, or better, a world we all created..

Agreed man!As i said in a different topic,we see only what is right before us at the current moment.When the truth of the matter comes face to face with our past screw ups we will lie,defy,and deny.Pass the blame and try to ensure others believe it.

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

Every action brings back a reaction, the way we're going as a species, we just keep pushing, and pushing, and pushing... nature to the brink, habitats of other animals to their brink, to some extent the climate, oceans, the entire balance... sooner or later tho, something will push back, I wonder can we handle that.
