    Unfortunately, I am a huge fan of cocoa and coffee and these are some of the main direct causes of deforestation.

A lot of net fishing is destructive becuase it pulls in so many species that are caught on...

    California and its "Mediterranean" climate are already super susceptible to droughts and water shortages. With annual rains decreasing year on year we will need to learn within our limit. Ironically the political group which preaches about living within our means are the same ones arguing that as long as they can pay for the water...
