Fire ice: The #energy of the future? #fossilfuels #dirtyfuel

Fire ice: The #energy of the future? #fossilfuels #dirtyfuel | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it

"The world is addicted to hydrocarbons, and it's easy to see why - cheap, plentiful and easy to mine, they represent an abundant energy source to fuel industrial development the world over.

The side-effects, however, are potentially devastating; burning fossil fuels emits the CO2 linked to global warming.

And as reserves of oil, coal and gas are becoming tougher to access, governments are looking ever harder for alternatives, not just to produce energy, but to help achieve the holy grail of all sovereign states - energy independence.

Some have discovered a potential saviour, locked away under deep ocean beds and vast swathes of permafrost. The problem is it's a hydrocarbon, but unlike any other we know."

LATEST assessments show that the Pacific bluefin tuna population remains at only four per cent of historic levels. Scientists at the International...
Marian Locksley's insight:

The Pacific bluefin population has literally been decimated. The solution is clear – we need a precautionary quota to limit overall catch and a minimum size limit to protect juveniles.

‘These steps should be implemented immediately as part of a robust rebuilding plan to ensure this species can pull through and recover.’

 

The ISC assessment shows that: 

 

The species has been ravaged by rampant overfishing and continues to be overfished today.Fishing rates are up in the western Pacific even though the current management measure required them to remain at 2002-2004 levels.Catch rates of the youngest bluefin (age 2 and under) are incredibly high – greater than 90% of the total catch.The highest catch by number is of fish less than 1 year old – fish that are less than 30 cm (13 in) long, weighing less than 1 kg (1 lb). These fish are being caught before they have an opportunity to reproduce, which further diminishes future populations.
