Our Oceans are Fucked

Are there even any words for this?

1,000 year old coral die-offs. Dead zones. Floating garbage patches the sizes of entire states. Global warming. Overfishing. Mass extinction. Habitat loss. Pollution. Oil spills. Reduced oxygen.

Basically, our oceans are fucked up. They are sick and dying. Scientists warn that if we don't take action now they will never recover.

"(Reuters) - Life in the oceans is at imminent risk of the worst spate of extinctions in millions of years due to threats such as climate change and over-fishing, a study showed on Tuesday."

This is critically dire news for the entire human race. Can you imagine trying to go to the beach and the water is just a slimy mess because the oxygen has dissapated? This is where we are heading.

No seafood? Just. Imagine. Now get used to it. It's happening NOW.
