The Whale Tale

Posted by goatchurch at 4:41 AM

Meanwhile, in an ocean far far away, the most magnificent animals on the planet are preparing to die. Greenpeace has attached satellite tracking devices so we can watch it as it happens.

We also need tracking devices on the Japanese whaling ships as well. Oddly, by international law designed to automatically avoid collisions, there is a system.

To prove there is no shame, the hunt is classified as scientific, which means it gets subsidized by the Government. The "science" is equivalent to logging the Amazon rain forest and hiring a couple of kids to count some of the tree-rings to determine the average age of the trees. In other words, it's self-invalidating.

After that, it's time to kill all the sharks.

Heartbreaking. The two most memorable days of my life have been spent watching these magnificent animals - please don't tell the wife I said that although, actually, I think she'll agree with me.

Humpback whales have learned to trust man in the forty-five years since we stopped hunting them.
If Japan carries out its aim of harpooning 50 humpback whales in the Antarctic this Southern Hemisphere Summer, the whale watching industry on Australia's east and west coasts will soon find out.
The humpbacks are the same as those who delight Australians each year and have created a $AU 300 million a year whale watching industry.
There is no benefit to mankind by killing these whales. Their meat won't help the poor ease their hunger but will grace the tables of the wealthy. The killing is done in the name of science but is it science to kill the subject?

I've commented about this atrocity on my own blog and have sent an email to the Japanese Embassy in London stating my feelings and my determination to boycott Japanese goods to the best of my ability. Small potatoes I know but the more publicity and public outrage that is thrown in their faces the better, perhaps they'll think again, worth a try, the email address is linked on my blog.
