Climate change and the seafood industry.

Dear sir,

With the World's Governments holding Conferences on how to deal with climate change and polution, the changes to our Oceans and marine habitats is barely mentioned.
While the dance of Diplomacy cost hundreds of millions, and Governments and industry consult(billions), our planets Oceans are being ignored.
Much worst than polution is human politics, by catering to every special interest group that represents customs and tradition, enlightened solutions to the stress on our Oceans is hopelessly postponed.
From the slaughter of one million baby seals in Canada over the last three years, to the killing of whales, dolphins and sharks,in what condition will the Oceans be to survive change.
With the polar ice melting and ocean water temperatures rising all marine eco systems are under stress.
On top of climate changes that will require lenghty studies, the marine species are subjected to the exploitation of unwise commercial enterprises.
Can stressed out species survive this ecological degradation.
Trawling amounts to clear cutting the bottom of the sea draging 30 ton weights on the bottom of the eco system.
Sealing is killing 300,000 baby seals in their nurseries, too young to swim they are slaughtered for 17 million Canadian dollars, shortning their lives by 30 years, this for the past three years.
Sharks species are facing extinction due to fin soup.
If our governments don't seriously address the fate of our Oceans, ours will be considered a dark age.
When obsolete and dysfuctional institutions failed to save our Oceans greatest Wonders, it's life.
Could we at least agree to end the most barberic acts against the Sea.
Sealing, Trawling and Shark fining.
Please consider what could be done to give our Oceans a future.
My prayers go with the few working to save our Oceans,
joseph thibeault
