Interesting Wall Street Journal opinion column today

Recommended Posts

Also interesting to note is that Mr. Clover is Prince Albert's co-author. Mr Clover also authored "The End of the Line: How Overfishing Is Changing the World and What We Eat" (University of California Press, 2009). A documentary film with the same title will be released on June 8.

CJ and I will be viewing this film at the Newport Riverfront Theatre ( http://www.newport.gov.uk/theriverfront/?e...hatsonID=223706 ) on Monday. Are any other Wetpixelers going to this show?

I wouldn't bash the WSJ that mercilessly. They're not anti-environmental, just anti-stupid-environmental. e.g. if you want to cut carbon, build more of the newer generation nukes, don't just tax the hell out of coal and oil to pay off your west coast constituencies. If nuke 'waste' is your counterargument, then look to France which reprocesses it....nuclear waste is only an 'issue' in the states because of earlier presidential decree we wouldn't reprocess, and the "not in my backyard" mentality takes over about where to store it. Etc.

 

The WSJ is first and foremost about mercantilism, and wiping out the resource you make money on - whether in logging, banking, fishing, whatever - isn't good for long-term business. That said, I admit I was also surprised to find a piece on fisheries specifically in the WSJ! I don't think they're anti-environmental, but they don't go out of their way usually to be "pro" environmental either. :)

at least we who dive, care.

 

The dive boats of the world are full of people who read the WSJ, dive and care.

There are several excellent books on this issue and related subjects by Carl Sarafina. Song for the ocean blue, and a sequel the name of which escapes me now.
