Mr. Jackson lays out an extremely disheartening and powerful look at the damage that humankind has inflicted upon the oceans.  There really can be no doubt that we are continuing to write own epitaph unless we do something dramatic to change our ways.  This is no longer about fluorescent light bulbs and hybrid cars.  We need to fundamentally restructure society in order to overcome the challenges that lie ahead of us.  That begins with the ability to accept honest truths and the courage to sacrifice in ways we (at least in Western societies) have not done in 100’s of years.  The most powerful statement issued by Mr. Jackson comes in the last 30 seconds of this 18 minute clip.  I recommend replaying it multiple times and letting anyone who will listen hear it!
