Re: The Ocean is broken? really?

Do any of you dive or snorkel? As a spear-fisherman, I have experienced Bahamian reef life degradation up close and personal over the last nine years. The coral is dying and there are significantly less fish in my favorite areas in both northern and southern Bahamas. Some species that were plentiful nine years ago are now almost completely decimated.

I know this is anecdotal evidence from just one person, but to me it's absolutely real. I am disheartened when I read posts that hold the politically-motivated blathering of Rush Limbaugh and his ilk in higher regard than actual observations of scientists and other people with meaningful experience.

If we are talking about ocean life, you really need to get off your boat and get your face down where the fish live.
