Running Out of Seafood My Ass
All Seafood Will Run Out by 2050? Obviously these 'educated buffoons' who wrote the study have never flown across the Pacific Ocean. Do they even know how much ocean there is out there?
"Whether we looked at tide pools or studies over the entire world's ocean, we saw the same picture emerging. In losing species we lose the productivity and stability of entire ecosystems," said the lead author Boris Worm of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
I'm not sure Dr. Worm has been out much. Sure, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt about ecological damage being inflicted to tidal regions along inhabited coastlines, but those areas are so miniscule compared to the rest of the ocean. Judging the ocean's health by studying the coastline is like a doctor making a diagnosis by looking at a mole on someone's pinky toe.
The ocean is just too big for us to screw up any time soon. Sure, we could nuke a lot of it, but that still wouldn't cause a collapse, and it certainly wouldn't ruin our food supply.
I'm getting really tired of these guys saying the world is going to end. Then again I'm willing to compromise. Let's give half a continent... say Central Australia or Northern Canada, to every insane mad scientist who believes that Humans are destroying the planet. Let them make their own laws, cities, cars, clothing, food, and produce their own energy. Let them do it their own eco-friendly way for 50 years, then see if they've made a difference.
Wait a second... we've already done that. It's called North Korea. They're the most energy efficient nation on earth.
North Korea... The Most Energy Efficient Nation On Earth, and the shining Beacon of Ecological Utopia for every eco-friendly moonbat around the world.

You always make me laugh - thanks!1:25 PM
I love it!
Ah, they just want to raise the price of lobster again - they do it every so often. And I for one believe New England lobster fishermen should be paid well! God, what I'd pay for a Maine lobster...Don't mind me, I always get homesick in the Fall.
