Humanity has exceeded planetary limits

Do we need any more evidence than the GulfSpill to finally appreciate that humanity is truly exceeding planetary limits? Do we now accept that our 'consumer culture' is the defendant in the crime of 'ecocide', murder of the environment?

Prior to the GulfSpill it had been predicted that the oceans would lose all their fishstocks by 2048 - will that earlier projection be brought forward now after this environmental catastrophe?

Meanwhile back in Australia, apathy reigns and we remain wedded to mandatory helmet laws...sigh
