All fish stocks have declined rapidly from massive overharvesting.

Yes, subby.

The rainforests in Brazil, aka "the lungs of the planet" are being erased.

As are the coral reefs.

Greta means well but she's about three generations of outrage too late.

Sorry.

It's nice that Elon Musk wants to send some portion of humanity to Mars to save us as a species.
The struggle for the last of us to exist in an artificial bubble on hostile world seems a fitting end.

They've been too focused on demanding fellatio instead of procreating.

If Musk wants to send himself and a bunch of ultra rich assholes to Mars where they will die a slow, painful death from cancer and malnutrition then I say let's get the boosters ready to go.

The first to go will be the ones willing to die for the work of building an outpost in the first place.
The ultra rich come later.

to be fair, big money folks have  always existed in an artificial bubble.

Of course.  You go arming them with frickin' laser beams, what do you expect?

I'm sure it doesn't have anything with JAWS being released 46 years ago.

If I remember the history correctly, fear of sharks and swimming in the ocean was not a thing in the US until that movie came out. Strange how a single movie can change human behavior forever.

Not all the species from the last 450 million years made it to the present.  Are some or most species of sharks going to kick the bucket?  Probably.  But during the collapse, pobably some deep sea shark will survive and they go on the speciate and survive another 450 million years.

Fun fact.
The world and all life will go on even if humans destroy the current set up earth has.
Even if we nuke it to the point it glows at nice.
Something somewhere will survive and slowly many different things will evolve.
If creatures survived the asteroid that took out the dinosaurs and burnt almost the entire planet to charcoal then I'm sure life will go on.
Just not for humans.
