The cover of the international edition of Newsweek is really telling. They get an image that illustrates a clear and present danger. We get a stupid troll image.

someone should find a a way to deep fry these jelly fish , make them a new taste treat.

As the oceans go, we all go. In other words, we're farked.
 
2012-05-18 04:29:36 AM
What better time to drill baby drill? All the fish are gone so all the crazy eco-terrorists won't care if we slap some giant metal pipes down there and suck the Earth of every last drop of oil!

And now for the libertarian solution to farked-up oceans:

Thank you for your time.

I suggest we just go ahead and declare war on all non-human life.

Pictures from 50`s, about 10 fish. picture 30 years later, about 40 fish, 30 years later, about 20 fish.

If we just kept to 10 fish, we would still have loads of fish. We are killing more fish now in numbers than we ever did....

I'm once more glad I don't have kids. You and yours are farked though. Good luck eating and breathing 50 years from now.
 
2012-05-18 06:29:48 AM
What's with the article pictures? A bunch of different pictures of different sized fishes from different times is supposed to mean something? In 1950 a guy caught a fish that weighed 50 lbs! In 2007, some other guy, possibly in a completely different place, caught possibly a completely different type of fish, weighing only 5 lbs!

Obviously this is bullshiat, man is not capable of impacting anything as large as the oceans, it's all fine. Nothing to worry about, and even if there were, it's natural, and anyway it would cost too much to fix it.

2012-05-18 06:46:54 AM
Yes. People must be taxed for this, while nothing actually happens about your probably made-up problems!
 
2012-05-18 06:49:08 AM
Some countries take the view that they'd be stupid to leave any of those fish there as if they don't take all of them someone else will.
The tragedy of the commons: Everybody has a motive to conserve common resources but everybody has a motive to grab as much of it as they can now.

So your saying that over-fishing may not be a viable long term strategy, thanks Captain Obvious.



Where have all the fish gone?
Long time passing

Long time ago

Fisherman caught them every one

cman: I am far more concerned with the bee disappearances over this shiat


Me too. For billions of people bees form the basis of their diets, it's a staple, whereas the number of people for whom fish is a staple is so small as to be inconsequential.
 
2012-05-18 06:53:53 AM
Just like the climate fund suckers, eath's oceanic pollution levels have fluctuated over the last 6000 years. Just another extreme lib attention grab away from the Obama economy.

Yeah we can fark over a few million people because they are mostly in poor countries. They are losing their land to sea level rise anyway.

But, YOU are ok so no worries right?

Are you trolling or stupid? If you're stupid, please kill yourself. If you're trolling, do you think you're helping by being sarcastic? You are going to live in a world that's populated by people who actually believe the bullshiat you pretend to espouse. You are going to feel the consequences of a dying world.

I hope you have a long life.

Not sure where cman may be coming from, but at face value he's right. If bees disappeared we'd all be truly farked.

Is this the part where we all are supposed to sound self-righteous and guilty at the same time just so others can see how awesome we really are deep down..and how we care about the all the poor fish in the ocean, and then forget about it 10 minutes later when we are on to the next story about teachers banging their students, and then live the rest of our lives not doing a goddam thing about it because we are just as lazy and selfish as everyone else...is this that part?

Because I for one will make no such statement. What can the common person do about it? Not much..I went to sea camp for years when I was a kid, I love the ocean. I gave to my oceanic society in hopes that it would help this exact cause..only to find that the money was spent on some BS to fix up their building and what not.

Problem is, the majority of the dumb masses, or dumb asses, in the world are just that. Most people are selfish and don't give a fark about anything or anyone but themselves. They will misuse and abuse your charity. They will take if at all possible. It's a collective flaw in humanity that will never be fixed, so just enjoy the oceans while you can because ain't nothin gonna change for the better.

/ also, there are just too many goddam people on this earth, and people gotta eat

publikenemy: What can the common person do about it? Not much..I


You can try to eat less seafood/fish (and that also means less pet food, as lots of it made of fish slime), vote for politicians who do something about it, boycott companies that pollute the seas, write petitions, make people more aware of issues....

Will that do much? Probably not, but just saying "I can't do anything about it" will do even less
