Looks like many scientists think the time is near.

Marine defaunation apparently taking the toll on marine animals.

I guess Humans are the cause.

Hmmm

Ocean Life Faces Mass Extinction, Broad Study Says



A team of scientists, in a groundbreaking analysis of data from hundreds of sources, has concluded that humans are on the verge of causing unprecedented damage to the oceans and the animals living in them.

“We may be sitting on a precipice of a major extinction event,” said Douglas J. McCauley, an ecologist at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and an author of the new research, which was published on Thursday in the journal Science

Multiple scientists are sounding the alarm. When will TPTB respond? and how will they respond?

the response is silence by the looks of things and has been for some time.....those that run this place seem to think our biosphere is totally renewable,like they can just buy another one when this one gets broken...

Dumping millions of tons of garbage every year, oil spills, drilling/mining, diesel fuel, industrial waste, radioactive waste, overfishing, overharvesting...

What could possibly go wrong with our oceans' flora and fauna ?!

I just like to think that TPTB already have established colonies on different planetary bodies in or outside of our solar system... That way if they let this planet die on us, they won't have to worry about an uprising when light years away. -takes off tinfoil hat-

But really, we need to step up our act in cleaning up after ourselves.

BP, Fukushima, and all the elite sabotage of the world's resources. They are deliberately leading us all into death, toxins and extreme scarsity and seem to want a bloodbath for resources and major depopulation as a result, not to save the planet. I think they can clean it all up and restock and have the DNA, but its not that, the reason they're doing it isn't to save earth, like a few of their underlings may think, because there is no need for fossil fuels and the kind of scaristy and people don't have to have huge families, they can get rid of the fundamental religions by telling the truth and rescuing all people from every nation who want to live in peace and not be subjected by psycho's or dominated. The reason they're running this scarcity and doing all of this, is because they want to keep their POWER, and that is truly what the depopulation and scarcity is all about. Just ego, greed, and power.

This isn't humans, as in us, its the particular not quite human, in their behavior, elites that are doing this.

Let's face it, the way our civilization operates is destroying the natural world around us. Unless there is change on a global scale we will sooner rather than later see the end of our society.
We as humans are created and conditioned to only see how the world effects us and seldom see how our actions affect the world around us. It's as though we live our lives with blinkers on, only seeing our goals and not what we trample to get there.
Quite frankly I see little hope in humanity changing as a collective to combat generations of misguidance and selfish desires. Only a catastrophe on a global scale will have any impact, but by then it will be too late.

I suspect they already have a back up plan. If not, I suppose they're living it big while they can and leaving the rest to fend for themselves.

It's been said before, for any real change to come we have to come together as a human race. I don't see that happening until we've just about ran out of time.

Scientific assessments of the oceans’ health are dogged by uncertainty: It’s much harder for researchers to judge the well-being of a species living underwater, over thousands of miles, than to track the health of a species on land. And changes that scientists observe in particular ocean ecosystems may not reflect trends across the planet.


Or maybe its just doom porn to get more grants????

I know - here's the answer - lets just impose an "ocean" tax!!!

Hawking and Musk warn us machines could 'decide' to eliminate all mankind, should they become intelligent entities.

They seem to be doing a pretty good job of it with the limited intellect they heretofore possess.

Artificial Intelligence is just the next stage in the evolution of industrialization.

When machines finally eliminate the human scourge, corporations will REALLY start to make money!

This time it`s real,The Chesapeake bay,for example, is getting closer to being dead. The only reason the bay still has any oysters is because the government uses tax money to produce baby oysters in oyster farms, then they go out on boats and plant the oysters on oyster beds.Then the commercial fisherman go out on boats and "catch" the oysters and bring them back in and sell them.
Even with the state seeding the oyster beds like this,oyster harvesting has been dramatically regulated because there aren`t enough oysters.The widespread pollution in the bay has reduced the number of oyster beds to just a few.

The whole oyster industry on the bay is now a charade maintained and backed by tax payer dollars and donations.

First the oceans, then the air and the soil inland. We're all gonna die and I already made a thread about it here: www.abovetopsecret.com...

There is no way to fix what has been done. The human race has 100 years left, tops. I pray it sooner than later.

After 100+ years of collectivist foundations, collectivist universities, collectivist legislation, there is no way to believe that mainstream science is not bent toward collectivist perception.

Remember that crisis is the mothers milk of the New World Order.

Maybe the NWO is destroying the planet as political fuel. Just as likely they saw it coming and welcomed it.

Maybe the planet is changing anyway; and that dynamic is what caused human intelligence in the first place.

Provide proof that pollution affected the oyster beds and not over-fishing please.

And remember Chesapeake Bay is not the whole ocean. That is like examining a glass of water and determining that whales are extinct.

I can see this as being the next big thing in separating us, the taxpayers, from our money. First global warming, now ocean life extinction. Where is ManBearPig on this? He's got to have his stinky little paws in this somewhere. Now watch the government grants coming out of the woodwork to fund these sleezeballs.

you can find out easy enough by googling it, or I can tell you that the oxygen levels in parts of the bay have dropped too low to sustain any life.
as I said if you`re really interested in this you can google it and find out more than I could ever tell you.
yes a bay is smaller than an ocean which would be why a bay will die before an ocean does.due to the smaller volume of water in a bay it would take a smaller amount of pollution to kill it.
but you probably already know all this

According to this report

www.cbf.org...

/the cause of oyster issues in Chesapeake Bay are two oyster diseases called MSX and Dormo




D i SE a SE r ES i ST a NCE: Research suggests the increased prevalence of oyster diseases in recent decades is driving a natural selection process that is breeding tougher oysters, especially in the southern Bay. In Virginia’s York River, fewer than five percent of oysters are dying from MSX today, while more than half were dying of the disease a decade ago. In Maryland, recently released state data show more oysters surviving diseases, suggesting more resistance. The average annual oyster mortality rate from disease in the state fell to 17 percent in the years 2005 through 2009, compared to an average of 29 percent for the years 1985 to 2004.
