In the news

Bad news: fisheries failing. I expect we will continue to hear more and more about this as it will not go away quickly.

Good news: a public health success story. I expect to rarely or never hear much about this again.

UPDATE: Even worse news: the cost of ecological destruction dwarfs the credit crunch. I am not sure which is more depressing, that we are losing between US$2-5 trillion annually in ecological destruction, or that most of us won't start paying attention until the destruction is quantified economically.
