Perhaps one of the least talked about (but one of the most important) aspects of ecological and environmental collapse: our oceans. From ocean acidification and dead zones to rising temperatures and overfishing, there are multiple threats to marine life. The delicate ocean ecosystems are dissolving before our eyes, with unprecedented consequences to our societies.
