Vast Pacific Ocean Biosystems Breaking Down

Abalone Collapse with Kelp Forests

The widespread collapse of kelp forests off the Northern California coast has devastated abalone populations.

The Abalone disappears as the environment supporting the Abalone breaks down and disappears.

 

Abalone Disaster-Level Harvest Limits 

 

Any long, close personal observation or review of recent research about our planet's ecosystems on land, in the skies, or under the waves all show severely damaged ecosystems operating under continuing, steadily increasing direct and indirect pressures.

The direct pressures are direct reductions in ecoystems through building, overdevelopment, massive over-harvesting of ocean life, chemical and plastic poisioning, among many frontal assaults and subtle insults.

The indirect pressures are the changes in the timing and character of the seasons themselves, drastic changes in the very nature of the physical environmental context our planet's ecosystems operate within. These changes in the traditional weather patterns are moving far outside the ranges that our planatary ecosystems have operated in for thousands of years, and they are changing at an unprecentented pace for the natural world to either produce itself, or accommodate.
