Jeremy Jackson on the State of the Oceans, Jamaica's Reefs, Overfishing, Dead Zones
This TED talk from last month is not easy to watch, however it is a sober view from a marine scientist on the state of the world's oceans. He begins with talking about the reefs off of Discovery Bay in Jamaica and the overfishing that caused the demise of Jamaica's reefs. He shows stark photos of the dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico which will of course now dramatically increase with the ongoing BP oil spill. Worth watching. We won't have any more fish within 20 years. Can you imagine?
