Of course the Pacific isn't dead. Though I know folks mean well, exaggerations like that appeal to people who are already sympathetic to the message but are often completely dismissed by anyone who is skeptical.

If the goal is to motivate people to change on a large scale, it's best to stick to facts and skip the hyperbole.
