Salt-Water Fish Extinction by 2048
Some of the species most threatened by over fishing currently include Atlantic Halibut, Monkfish, all sharks, and Blue Fin Tuna. Other animals not usually associated with the seafood industry are also affected, with inadvertent by-catches claiming loggerhead turtles, sharks, dolphins and whales.
In the future removing the fish we eat will result in the deterioration or loss of marine ecosystems around the globe; the oceans become full of algae and jellyfish. The oceanic food web collapses, many birds and sea mammals that eat fish also become extinct and many humans that rely on fish starve.
Increasing population, mass migration to cities, increasing energy and soaring CO2 emissions damage the planet's resources beyond repair.
Most alarming; climate-warming, carbon emissions increased 40% in the past 20 years, but two-thirds of that rise occurred in the past decade.
Researchers say that global ocean water levels on Earth have risen about 19 centimetres in the last century. And the rate of rise is speeding up. The 20th-century average is about 1.7 millimetres per year; since 1993 the average rate has nearly doubled to about 3.2 millimetres per year.
Core samples, tide gauge readings, and, most recently, satellite measurements tell us that over the past century, the Global Sea Level (GMSL) has risen by 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 centimeters).
During the most recent ice age (at its maximum about 20,000 years ago) the World's sea level was about 130 m lower than today, due to the large amount of sea water that had evaporated and been deposited as snow and ice, mostly in the ice sheet. Most of this had melted about 10,000 years ago.
