Here’s the latest scare, on the front page of today’s WaPo: There ain’t gonna be any more fish by 2048. So that sucks. Better grab your cane pole and head for the fishing hole this weekend, then. Of course, if your read the article, there’s as much dissent and rational thinking as there is hysteria. But the rational thinking makes for a bad headline. So let’s just say the fish are disappearing, OK?
By the way, we know Social Security will be bust by then, but nobody seems motivated to do anything about that. This story is just a wild guess, but warrants front page treatment. And where are the folks who should be signing the Social Security pledge?
Gone fishin’, apparently.
UPDATE (By Carter Wood): Suppose that means the great Weezer video, “Keep Fishin'” will fall out of favor. Alas for the Muppets…
UPDATE (By Pat Cleary): Now comes a rational voice, a Professor of aquatic and fishery science at the University of Washington who calls the fish study, “mind boggling stupid.” Speaking truth to hysteria — bravo!
