The Greens who cry wolf?

The Collapse of the Fishing Industry seems to have more solid evidence than global warming, which is based mostly on computer models. Fishing is difficult to regulate because so many people have huge investments in boats and tackle that they can't pay for without catching more. I think that we'll eventually have to limit the number of permits and regulate many of the practices that overload the fish stocks.

Some experts think this is alarmist, but even they acknowledge the need for management. I'd hate to see repeats of the devastation of the cod fishery in the North Atlantic. This is one area where I tend to see logic in environmentalism.
