Fish and Chip Supper Anyone?

  oresome 09:09 03 Nov 2006

It seems the oceans fish will expire at around the same time as the oil we cook them in. (Well, not quite the same oil)

Is there likely to be a worldwide consensus on using the earths resources in a sustainable manner before it's too late, or is mankind as a species now at it's peak?

Should we all adopt a simpler more sustainable lifestyle, or forge ahead hoping technological breakthroughs will save the day?

You said that would never happen a couple of weeks ago.

I had the same thought, just before I clicked your link.

Just a thought - Will the term "Cod's Wallop" become a term of derision again?

The thing that baffles most people, is about all this save the world issues, and the waste created by experts sitting around a table. Ask any trawler captain,active or now redundant, whether they have had to throw some of their catch overboard, because they have just exceeded a quota.

This report is only someone's opinion. Is there anyone out there who can give an instance of someone's prophecy becoming reality? I can't think of any.

What did Nostradamus predict that came true?
Sorry, I don't want to hijack the original thread. What I meant to say was, what, in modern times, did anyone predict that came true?

Thanks for the link, lisa02. That's why I didn't mention Nostradamus - it's too tenuous to be taken seriously. My point is that will anyone remember this fish situation when it is supposed to happen? I don't think so.

I wonder if the US government have a programme in hand to clone fish. Might solve a few shortages and make them saviours of the world. Again.
