Another 50 percent decrease in per capita water supply is projected by the year 2025. Water demands already far exceed supplies in nearly 80 nations. For instance, in China more than 300 cities suffer from inadequate water supplies, and the problem is quickly intensifying as the population increases. In arid regions such as the Middle East and parts of North Africa, where yearly rainfall is low and irrigation is expensive, the future of agricultural production is grim. Eroded soil sediments washed into the reservoirs behind dams during rainfall creates additional problems.
Today, like so many reefs around the world, the once thriving reef community at Palau’s Short Drop-Off is a cemetery ultimately caused by anthropogenic (man-made) carbon dioxide, a victim of what came to be known as coral bleaching, thanks to the washed-out colors it and other reefs would develop as they succumbed to water too warm. It would be one of the first sirens announcing an oncoming greenhouse extinction, if my colleagues and I have correctly interpreted the clues from the past. The time for studying the nautiluses came and went, another decade passed, and with increasing heat the reefs began to die.
You have scientific consensus and nothing moves. ” The projected global collapse of ocean fish stocks by the year 2048 grabbed headlines when Science magazine published the alarming findings of an international panel of scientists, according to the ocean advocacy group SeaKeepers. While that report focused on the larger, fish species that we typically eat, equally important is the bottom of the complex ocean food chain. As with any structure, its stability and strength are based upon its foundation.
