  • Mar 27 2013: Thanks for the reply. No citation just a guesstimate you can correct me if you feel the need or you can just wait until the numbers match up. It will not be long. I rarely eat fish from the ocean (they are poisoned) and usually they are caught and eaten before they have even had a chance to BREED. So no I rarely eat animals from the ocean. If however one enjoys swordfish for example you might as well have a steak because they will soon be gone. It will not be because you ate the steak It will be because for one hundred years we have known (simply by watching the fish being caught ) What is referred to as a big swordfish today is actually what one's grandpa would have thrown back because it was a baby. In order for something to be sustainable the consumption must be controlled. Good luck with that. The system will break in the next 100 years as we slowly kill off all of the plankton eating animals due to consumption of polymers. as well as other man made factors.
    It is no more a belief that the oceans cannot be saved than measuring distance by type1A supernovae is a belief. Could be wrong but the calculations keep working out time after time. The chain has been broken and we show no signs of slowing down at ALL. If America puts a ban or limit on something they just slaughter more in Asia.
    If one wants to help earth the easiest way would be by not having children and adopt an unloved neglected baby. There are MILLIONS . That would help more to save us than occupying a park or some silly hippie crap like chasing whalers fruitlessly for publicity. Yeah that's working. Sink the SHIP that WOULD HELP. Saving the earth is easy STOP OVERBREEDING. Once again Good luck.Thanks again Have a great day
