Fish mass extinction imminent

Ocean life on the brink of mass extinctions: study | Reuters.

Reuters has a orphaned story regarding fish mass extinctions.  Well to be fair, it’s not totally orphaned – 97 people liked it on Facebook.  Apparently a new study indicates that the combined effect of global warming, ocean pollution, and overfishing are about to cause the sixth mass extinction in the history of Earth, and the first that we’ll be around for.  The study suggested several policy changes, particularly regarding overfishing, that could reverse the problem.

What’s Congress going to do about it?  Tax cuts for the rich and oil subsidies.  Let’s be honest.
