    To be fair its been known about since the 1850's - John Tyndall an Irish physicist (the Tyndall Centre is named for him) is generally credited as having developed the basis of the theory but there are a number of other claims - the globe would still be a ball of ice without it.

    I sincerely hope we learn from previous mistakes and don't fish them out of existence again. Knowing the fishing industry though I suspect the same mistakes will be made again.

    What do you think? For one thing, you don't 'catch tag and release' tuna on a hook and line. You exhaust them over a very long period of time and then drop them back in to die.
