Après Nous ...

We find it entirely fitting that most life on this planet will barely outlive us.
The panel of 27 scientists, who considered the latest research from all areas of marine science, concluded that a "combination of stressors is creating the conditions associated with every previous major extinction of species in Earth's history". They also concluded:

* The speed and rate of degeneration of the oceans is far faster than anyone has predicted;
* Many of the negative impacts identified are greater than the worst predictions;
* The first steps to globally significant extinction may have already begun.
Goodbye, losers born too late.

Yup. Wish there were something else to say, but that sums it up.

This may be known as the "Soooo Fucked" decade.
