The World as Bushmeat

Reason the need:

'Only 50 years left' for sea fish

By Richard Black, Environment correspondent, BBC News website, Nov. 2nd 2006:

There will be virtually nothing left to fish from the seas by the middle of the century if current trends continue, according to a major scientific study. Stocks have collapsed in nearly one-third of sea fisheries, and the rate of decline is accelerating.

The war on mammals will probably be over sooner. Elephants, angered by the slaughter of their families, are doing their best to resist human colonists, who are doing their best to eat, and to feed their families, while being colonised by capital.

O reason not the need! Our basest beggars
Are in the poorest thing superfluous.
Allow not nature more than nature needs,
Man's life is as cheap as beast's.

Well, not quite that cheap. Not yet. Or at least not everywhere, yet.
