“Globally Significant” Marine Extinction

Over-fishing, pollution, loss of habitat and climate change are causing devastation in the ocean where many species are at the brink of commercial extinction. The International Programme on the State of the Ocean.org has issued a report stating the catastrophic effects of irresponsible human activity that may cause much hardship to the generations to come. This report urges authorities and people everywhere to act rapidly and accordingly in order to prevent "globally significant" marine extinction.

We might be at a point of no return, where the consequences of our actions will prove too detrimental for our planet and its inhabitants. What does it say about us, stewards of God’s Creation, that we would rather seek pleasure, profit and power - in spite of the suffering we cause - than to make mindful choices that would benefit everyone? Our actions and choices ought to be aligned with our Faith, and clearly, what we are doing to the ocean and marine creatures goes against Christ’s teachings of compassion, mercy, love and justice. In fact, we should be ashamed of how trivially we have handled the sacred task of caring for God’s Creation! .
