When an institution that is big and perceived as a trustworthy bulwark and anchor of a society's status quo intentionally promotes a blatant falsehood as truth, it creates a psychological or cognitive dissonance in those covered by that institution that most people can't handle. The idea of calling out an institution that is supposed to be at the center of holding our society together - like government, academia, the medical industry - is terribly frightening to many people; to acknowledge the possibility that there is anything awry in the official narrative fed to us by those whom we are supposed to trust is to admit that maybe our world is not as stable and controlled as we want to believe it is and this is terrifies most people. The majority of the populace will, therefore, strain to believe the falsehood in lieu of accepting the obvious truth.

Massive overfishing The global fishing fleet is 2-3 times larger than what the oceans can sustainably support. In other words, people are taking far more fish out of the ocean than can be replaced by those remaining. As a result: 53% of the world’s fisheries are fully exploited, and 32% are overexploited, depleted, or recovering from depletion1 Most of the top ten marine fisheries, accounting for about 30% of all capture fisheries production, are fully exploited or overexploited1 Several important commercial fish populations have declined to the point where their survival is threatened Unless the current situation improves, stocks of all species currently fished for food are predicted to collapse by 2048.

Just can't resist an opportunity to float the whole global warming thing out there...again, huh?
"Global warming" being caused by humans is...the greatest hoax ever perpetuated on mankind!
BTW...NASA wasn't even created until 1958, and last time I checked the Industrial Revolution started in about, oh, 1760 or so. And, isn't it ironic too that you would cite NASA, the US agency who have probably singlehandedly contributed to more to the destruction of the Earth's ozone layer than any other single US agency. Pot...meet kettle.
