It always amazed me that humans can be sooooo dense...we fish waters with the same vigour that our fathers did, but forget that there are a hell of a lot more of us on this little planet, and do we ever question that perhaps we are now over-doing it ? No.
Pollutants? Heck, the next generation can solve that problem.
Carbon Monoxide fouling the air? Not our problem, we have to drive don't we????
High mercury count in the fish we eat? Obviously, a governmental conspiracy against the fishing industry...we are sure that study was fixed.
It's enough to make you want to bang your head into a wall repeatedly...maybe forever !
