We like to show happy movies at Earth House. For instance, we screened The End of the Line last night. The tagline? Imagine a World Without Fish. By the way, thank you to Slow Food Indy for sponsoring the event.
There’s no doubt that environmental problems are wrecking our oceans. Just watch Sea Change: Imagine a World without Fish, which is about ocean acidification. Or read about ocean dead zones or the “great Pacific garbage patch.”
According to The End of the Line, the biggest problem is technology. Humans have gotten really good at fishing. Industrialized fishing ( aka”strip mining the seas”) has wiped out the world’s oceans. Look what happened to the famed cod fishing of Newfoundland.
