    Depressing to see this. And, of course, the idiot incompetents who govern us will say they need to study it & produce a report detailing an action plan.

    Just as I didn't need a govt report to tell me that humans have created global warming (and thus the rapidly increasing destruction of our polar ice caps), I don't need a govt report to tell me that humans are destroying our own oceans.

    When the fish are gone (being the last truly wild food that we have access to eating), and they will be gone by the next human gen, we're screwed worse than we are now: everything will be processed food, laden (even more so than they are now) with drugs, chemicals & health-destroying additives.

    I'm 38 years old and this is the generation that will see the destruction of the world! Its already in motion and is going to take a few years to see the drastic effects, however already things are starting to go south.

    Its funny how it really only began about 150 years ago. Man really didn't start pillaging and plundering the earth till about the mid 1800's (with any permanent effects anyway).

    Didn't take long...

    You guys do realize that most civilizations and religions have forecasted their own demise right? Look at the Mayans, their calendar ended a couple years ago but their people died much earlier. We've been warned that we should repent because the end is near too by many people in robes.

    It is human nature and forecasting fear of your own impending death that makes everyone look forward with fear at the end of the world. We are unique just like everyone else. We've got more facts on our side, Science Dammit, but the things we put are faith in are still telling us we're going to die. Barring a nuclear mutually assured destruction or direct impact from an asteroid the size of Texas we'll probably be ok. In the next 50-100 years these developing nations will catch up with the West and see the error in their ways and benefit from the cleaner technologies at the same time.

    clemson, they were all local events, the survivors could leave and settle with a reduced complexity and live like wildings out in the forest...there is no escape from this crash unless you got a space ship

    Its all part of the cycle. It can't go on forever. The Earth will be wiped clean and will start all over just as it has in the past.

    wavehog, yes, but will it be fire? ice?

    Frank Zappa said the world will end in paperwork, seems most likely

    I was hoping to drown in vagina, but unlikely

    I think it's gonna be water...the irony being that the necessary component for all life will be what brings about our demise.

    nah, it's neo-classical economic theory and the idea that you can have Infinite growth on a finite planet... better read up on this one fellas..bc it's the one driving this train of destruction

    oh the planet will cleanse itself of all the pollution and detritus of "modernity" I assure you..but that doesn't mean humanity has to take a hike... and we've been given recent opportunities to help her along... just after the 2008 crash for instance there were many different ways to "fix" the problem of a hyper-complex debt-fueled Global economy that relies on ever increasing pollution and ever increasing levels of poverty, from going bankrupt...well what did the powers that be do? they got their duct tape out and started fixing the parts of this economy and man-made environments that should have been allowed to wither and go away... we gotta let this thing wither and go away before mankind whithers and goes away. #jussayin

    Litter in the Pacific is the least of their worries right now. The Fukushima radiation will have far worse implications.

    Aqua-culture farming. We have to raise more fish and take less from the ocean. Commercial fisherman could be put to work on massive coastal fish farms. This would let the ocean regenerate a little. We should create trash rockets or rockets filled with our garbage and shoot them out into space will they will freeze into giant space garbage asteroids. This will make the liberals happy. We should create a bio-weapon that kills everyone in China and India because they are the number one trash producers. This will make the Tea Party folks happy.
    There. Problem solved. How [email protected] hard was that?

    We could genetically create a giant snail (I'm thinking like Gary from SpongeBob) that eats radiation. Problem solved. Except when it becomes too giant and attacks Tokyo. Then Ultra-man will come down from space and destroy it for us.

    Brilliant Chavez, especially the trash into space and removal of the Chinese and Indian populations.
