As if we weren’t already aware of the piss poor state of our environment, a new report from the International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO) has revealed that if we continue to destroy our oceans then we are essentially facing a mass extinction of aquatic life.

The panel of scientists concluded that the depletion of the world’s oceans are occurring at a much faster rate than originally anticipated, and it was one of the first-ever interdisciplinary studies that combined aspects like pollution, warming, acidification, overfishing and hypoxia (low oxygen).

“The findings are shocking,” stated IPSO’s scientific director, Dr. Alex Rogers. “This is a very serious situation demanding unequivocal action at every level. We are looking at consequences for humankind that will impact in our lifetime, and worse, our children’s and generations beyond that.”

The current conditions existing in the oceans is comparable to those found in all major extinctions of species that our planet has faced, and the IPSO report calls for an “immediate reduction of CO2 emissions, coordinated efforts to restore marine ecosystems, and universal implementation of the precautionary principle so ‘activities proceed only if they are shown not to harm the ocean singly or in combination with other activities.'”
