Mass Extinction July 2, 2011 : 6:36 PM

We have already done huge amount of damaging to our oceans with huge implications for all of us.

“The threats of over-fishing and to the world's fragile coral reefs have long been well documented, but now a panel of scientists say the threats to marine life are far worse than previously imagined.”

“The International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO) convened a self-described "first inter-disciplinary international meeting of marine scientists of its kind" recently, and they have released a report claiming,"multiple ocean stresses threaten globally significant marine extinction."

“Dr. Alex Rogers, scientific director of IPSO, said in a press release: "The findings are shocking. As we considered the cumulative effect of what humankind does to the ocean the implications became far worse than we had individually realized."
