Personally Sad Permaculture Solstice

I had envisioned or had hopes for today being peaceful with celebrations for the solstice world wide. Be you pagan, or a Roman Catholic gaming in World of Warcraft all I had envisioned for today was that of one of peace.

Instead I found a very disturbing scientific article about the conditions of the ocean. First of which is a scientists warning of a massive die off in the oceans due to various reasons one of which is directly caused by you and I. However, nature has been through this before, so I have hope for the planet, not so much for mankind.

Here is the article.

However, this article links to another source, which has an even scarier article, one nations leaders should stand up and be concerned about, however it will most likely fall on deaf ears as usual.

According to scientists, the southern oceans of our world are nearly to a point where acidification will cascade in failure and cause a die off. I have already seen the die off in San Francisco's Bay, and the ecology it destroyed literally. Fishermen no longer can catch enough food for themselves let alone to sell at market. The crabs are gone, as are the sturgeon and salmon. Is this the future for all the oceans? The Mediterranean sea is already experiencing massive die offs in areas as well. What will it take for you to wake up to these problems? What is this world going to be like for your child, and his or her children if YOU keep up the destructive practices you are doing today?

Here is the article about ocean acidification.
