Will we have lifeless oceans in 2050 ?

According to a scary new report from the United Nations Environment Program : “virtually all commercial fisheries will have collapsed by 2050 unless urgent action is taken to bring far more intelligent management to fisheries”.

This isn’t new as we have seen many times over the past three years that our oceans are polluted in many different ways. The huge oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is the latest sign of the disdain we have for such an important part of our planet.

The article from the UNEP shows that on the other hand a sustainable management and investments could generate up to $1.7 trillion ( 1,450 billion euros ) over the next 40 years.
