Humanity driving 'unprecedented' marine extinction

Report comparing past mass extinction events warns that hunting and killing of ocean’s largest species will disrupt ecosystems for millions of years. (...)

But today’s “sixth extinction” is unique in the way that the largest species, such as great white sharks, blue whales and southern bluefin tuna, are being pushed to the brink, due to humans’ tendency to fish for larger species more often than smaller ones.

The consequences, according to a study published in the journal Science on Wednesday, are devastating for the ecology of the world’s oceans. (...)

The danger is disproportionate to the percentage of threatened species, with the authors warning the loss of giants would “disrupt ecosystems for millions of years even at levels of taxonomic loss far below those of previous mass extinctions”. (...)

No One Mentions the F Word, Fukushima: The Die-Off of Marine and Animal Life in the North Pacific Ocean. Scientists Refuse to Admit it

What the articles below show is that no scientist has an excuse, as the information has been there from the beginning of this catastrophe. It's incredulous that they wouldn't have found these artic...

#May #2015 – #JAPAN – #Tokyo #Electric #Power Co. should consider discharging water contaminated by the Fukushima Daiichi reactor meltdowns into the #Pacific #Ocean, the International Atomic Energy Agency said. More than four years after the nuclear power-plant disaster in Japan, the United Nations agency renewed pressure for an alternative to holding the tainted water in tanks and offered to help monitor for offshore #radiation. “The IAEA team believes it is necessary to find a sustainable solution to the problem of managing contaminated water,” the Vienna-based agency said in a report. “This would require considering all options, including the possible resumption of controlled discharges into the #sea
