We are ecologically incontinent.

We just can’t stop ourselves.  Further, our advocacy of the “free market” is our way of announcing that we do not intend to act responsibly.   What’s the latest chapter in human ecological incontinence?   The destruction of bluefin tuna.

Overfishing will wipe out the breeding population of Atlantic bluefin tuna, one of the ocean’s largest and fastest predators, in three years unless catches are dramatically reduced, conservation group WWF said on Tuesday.

We’ve already wiped out Atlantic cod, so why not? That must be the mentality.
