Book Description M.T.Smith. Condition: Very Good. 1972. Hardcover. Temple Smith, 1972, 1st UK edn. trade paperback in laminated pictorial card covers in mint condition; 208pp+12pp biblio, index; The seas could die. Life may be extinct in the Mediterranean and the Baltic before the end of the present decade, and within a horrifyingly small number of years the whole world ocean could be dead. If we are to prevent this, we must take radical action, and take it now. This is the greatest environmental crisis facing mankind, yet surprisingly little has been written about it for the general public. In this book Colin Moorcraft portrays the intricate system in which all marine life is interlinked, shows how man's actions threaten its survival and describes what needs to be done. Overkilling is bringing many species of fish and sea mammals to the edge of extinction, among them the great whales. Pollution (much of it originating on land) is endangering every kind of marine life? including the vital plankton on which all the others depend. DDT is found deep in the Antarctic: in the surface layer of the oceans, oil is almost as widespread as salt. Just when we are most dependent on new food supplies to feed an exploding population, one of our greatest sources is being wasted. Even while it lasts it is being absurdly misused. Underdeveloped countries badly need protein but an increasing proportion of the world fish catch is being turned into fish meal to feed the battery chickens and pigs of the rich nations. In countering all these threats to the living ocean, only international action can be effective. The last chapters of Must the Seas Die ? discuss what is being done and what needs to be done, in the short and long terms, and an appendix deals with what the individual can do to help. Throughout the book Colin Moorcraft takes a sane and positive approach, avoiding hysteria and scaremongering : the death of the seas does not need exaggeration to make its impact. 8½x5½". . . . .
