Hoe we de oceanen de vernieling in helpen

Ecologist Jeremy Jackson explains in his 18-minute TED talk 'How we wrecked the ocean': 'So the question is, how are we all gonna respond to this (...). In the final analysis, the thing we really need to fix, is ourselves'.

(...) Jackson, concludes in his article, 'The future of the oceans past':
massive influxes of carbon at the end of the Palaeocene caused intense global warming, ocean acidification, mass extinction throughout the deep sea and the worldwide disappearance of coral reefs.
(...) There is an urgent need for immediate and decisive conservation action. Otherwise, another great mass extinction affecting all ocean ecosystems and comparable to the upheavals of the geological past appears inevitable.
