'Casper' Octopus Could Be Threatened by Deep-Sea Mining
Seeker article 2016
This doesn't surprise me but greatly saddens me.
I am not sure how to look at this one. If we did not use our resources we would still be living in caves and not sitting here sharing information. However, we have come far enough to understand that what we do has other impacts and need to do a better job of how we go about harvesting our resources to retain sustainability of what we impact. This is easier said than done. Here, we expect our major population to have access to technology and not have it hoarded by the wealthy. To do that, raw material needs to be inexpensive. It is a dangerous balancing act to be sure.
Well, when you destroy the planet you don't have to worry about sharing information.
I agree - needs to be done right!
