World War Three in the South China Sea

Human existence on the planet is coming to a head.

Asia is facing two serious problems: The depletion of their supply of food from the sea, and the depletion of fresh water. Here in the United States we didn't pay attention to our water supply until the drought in the Southwest. We mostly ignore the stories about people whose well water was contaminated by Fracking. Our parents may recall a river catching on fire,  It wasn't long after that companies started moving manufacturing overseas where pollution wouldn't interfere with consumer decisions here in the United States.

I can't even begin to summarize the following. I hope you will bookmark the links below and find a way to solve these issues.
