    Chief Hypocrite Obama didn't ban whaling in Alaska and instead approved offshore oil drilling:

    Humanity is unlikely to survive the next 100 years if we continue on our present path. This is a real threat, but one of a huge number of environmental, economic, and military threats to survival of the human race as well as many animal and plant species.

    Does this mean it'll actually be safe to swim in the ocean soon without worrying about shark bites?

    people won't care until 500 million starve to death (which really wouldn't be a bad thing)

    I dont think people will "care" even then by the way political correct thought now dictates that More people is better regardless of the suffering it causes. Obama just invited 10,000 more people to the table after the 50,000 kids he invited last year but LA alone already has 20, 000 homeless whose needs are not being met.

    It's frightening that we're doing almost nothing to turn it around.

    In some ways I mourn most deeply for the animals who are the most innocent of all. Humans at least have the fantasy of an afterlife. Animals are just poor mortal creatures stuck under the wheels of human lemmings racing for the cliff.

    people don't care, they'll just continue to dump all their trash into the ocean and pump out more babies

    If you're talking population growth, agreed, and I have no idea what we could do to roll it back to what it was 30 - 40 years ago. Well, I have one idea and that wouldn't be nice and would leave lingering after effects for hundreds of years

    This is the kind of sobering bullshit that outright baffles me. And NONE of these religions are helping ANY of it.

    all of you crying about this aren't doing jack shit to prevent this so stop blaming others for pumping babies or dumping trash. You are part of this. But it makes sense, people are living their lives but in the process we are destroying the planet.

    My faith lies in human ingenuity to fix this problem but this won't happen until a major catastrophe occurs.

    Humpback whales spotted in Columbia River

    El Niño conditions along with food shortages are likely reasons the whales were so far from the ocean
