The oceans are in a worse state than previously suspected, according to an expert panel of scientists.
In a new report, they warn that ocean life is "at high risk of entering a phase of extinction of marine species unprecedented in human history".
They conclude that issues such as over-fishing, pollution and climate change are acting together in ways that have not previously been recognised.
The impacts, they say, are already affecting humanity.
This is rather frightening.
Unfortunately as an individual though I live as green as I can, the world still demands economic growth which almost always means environmental destruction. More airports, more cars on the road, more consumer goods, etc...
Makes me wonder where we'll be in ten, twenty and thirty years.
