Slowly we kill the planet that give all things life. There will soon come a moment the balance tips and mass extinctions occur, this will be the biggest change mankind has ever seen and it will not be good for mankind. Civilization will end as we know it and some new equilibrium will be realized, with many fewer humans on the planet. At that point the damage being done by humans will be eliminated and the planet can begin to heal.

The price for taking no action that changes how we live right now. A pampered species that will be its own demise. Nobody to blame but humanity.

Most of that tuna probably ends up in Japan.

Climate change is certainly a factor, but let us not forget the unsustainable and catastrophic effects of overfishing.

We are raping the oceans of massive amounts of sealife daily and the day is not far off when entire systems collapse.

Then falls mankind.

It's so woefully avoidable, too. All we need to do is stop eating/harvesting seafood for five years, and abundance would return. But no, the usual suspects would start bleating "this is our culture", so nothing will be done until that culture is irrevocably destroyed.

I'm quite glad I am old and on the way out. The next few generations will not be having an easy ride.
