Is it currently possible to stop and reverse the damage that is being caused to the planet? If we consider where the world currently stands in terms of resource depletion and greenhouse gas emissions, it’s tempting to think that this situation cannot be improved. However, the WWF (World Wildlife Foundation) has taken a look at where things are today and where they are going and they believe that the world has more than enough sustainable energy and technology.
The WWF (World Wildlife Fund) conducted a four year study of the oceans and seas of the world and determined that by the year 2048, the stock of all fish species currently exploited will collapse. Currently, the stock of about 1/3 of marine species have collapsed and the pace is accelerating drastically.
The main cause is the increase in international commercial fishing without adequate resource planning as there are too many fishing boats in relation to the carrying capacity of the resource. This creates undue pressure on the species while fishing companies continue to make handsome.
