PostSubject: whaling=legal? hell no   Fri May 28, 2010 6:10 pm

hello guys
im here to talk about a more serious matter today
do you guys know what whaling is? its the killing of whales/dolphins etc for their meat
whaling has been illegal for the past couple of years but its not in a little place called Taiji,Japan(I'll go into more detail on that later)
anyhow, theres an organization called the IWC (International Whaling Commission). they "control" whaling and they made whaling illegal. however, they decided to reverse that ban and now whaling is going to be legal.
now lets backtrack a bit, remember I talked about Taiji,Japan? Dolphins are killed there every year. and want to know how many are killed? 25,000
whaling is an abomination and it should definitely not be legal
sign this petition http://apps.facebook.com/causes/petitions/464?m=a4681d42&recruiter_id=139332850&ref=mf
and we can all make a difference
thanks guys
~Gaia

I pretty much know all about this. I'm in Marine Biology so I know stuff like killing Sharks for Shark Fin Soup,Killing Whales for their own Blubber. I'd like to sign the Petition, but I don't even go on facebook. Most of my friends use myspace.

You know what is a waste of time?
Killing Dolphins.
It's unhealthy to eat them because they have a high amount of mercury. ._.
And yet, they still eat them. Sad My L.A Teacher told us a sad story of a dolphin that no dolphin should ever face.
So IMO Japanese are a bit stupid. >_>

this is the thing
the Japanese kill dolphins because they think its "pest control"
they think they're the reason that the # of fish is going down
however, humans are behind that, NOT dolphins

The dumb part about that is that they EAT the dolphins.
Its dumb because dolphins are unhealthy to eat with their high amount of mercury.

well the japanese made that treeko you have as a avatar, so they cant be stupid, its just there attitude towards marine life that is. Can you belive they fish up sharks, cut the fin off, and throw them back in to die? what a waste.

lol
some girl in my geography class did a research paper about this issue.

It sounded like a 5 year old typed it up for her :]
Needless to say it wasn't very persuasive.


I'll think about signing it.

Let me take a wild guess, more or less it was "and killing whales is wrong, because they are living beings and we gotta respect all life" wasnt it?

No it was more like
"killing whales is wrong because the japanese don't care about the poor whales feelings."
"Whales have families too and you can't just take away a family member."
I was trying my hardest not to laugh throughout the whole paper.
