Geography and Fish...

Has Cod had its chips ?

England's favourite meal is fish and chips (or is it chicken tikka), but that may not be the case in the future. Fish stocks are declining alarmingly (they have been for ages...)
This BBC ARTICLE suggests there may only be 50 years to save ocean fishing.
Soylent Green could be on the menu sooner than we think...

Also got this via the GGiP blog:

The extraordinary Stern Review, published at the end of October, provides an account of the changing global climate and speculates on some of the impacts:

    “Such changes would transform the physical geography of the world. A radical change in the physical geography of the world must have powerful implications for the human geography – where people live, and how they lead their lives.”

(Stern Review, Executive Summary p iv)

Geography is the subject that crosses over the physical and human worlds. Geographical perspectives may help us understand the world more fully.
