This year, Japanese whalers are hoping to hunt 935 minke whales in Antarctic waters and target fin whales for the first time in the scientific
Sorry you are correct it was in the first article and I missed it, but I did acknowledge the supporting links noting that China's media quoted Green
peace and I for one do not believe everything Green peace says. They are no different then Peta or other Activist groups, they lend to lie a lot.
Fin whales are endangered.
And that I also acknowledged.
"Adding insult to injury this year 10 fin whales will also be caught in the harpooner's sights. Next year 40 more fin whales will be added along
with 50 humpback whales," it said. Both fin whales and humpback whales are recognized as endangered species.
My bad though, the humpbacks are scheduled for next year.
Yes too that I have to agree since you have no proof they will hunt humpbacks next year.
We all know that activist groups and individual activists tend to exaggerate a lot just as you did above by implying they will hunt humpbacks.
I could give you tons of examples.
1. PETA says Milk is bad for you, Yet the Medical community says otherwise.
2. Individuals will claim they saw an endangered species just to stop a community center from going up. Case in point New Berlin Community center
where one man claimed he saw an endangered snake which held up the completion of the complex for almost five years only to find out that he had lied.
Oh and let us not forget the same group connected with that man claimed they saw the same snake in another area where a development was scheduled to
be erected and once again the state DNR wastes several hundred thousand dollars only to find out the claim was false again.
3. Then you have the so called finds of a variety of the spotted Owl which was also wrong in Arizona and New Mexico by activist groups that did not
want developments in the desert.
As I said I could go on and on with many examples all which turned out to be false, but that is for a whole new thread
Again I will say, I am against the taking of endangered species that is wrong. But we have to keep in mind Green Peace is no different then the
examples given above they like the above groups tend to exagerate as was proven in the Makah Nation Grey Whale huntiing several years ago. They
claimed the greys were on the endangered list when in fact they had been removed.
Also keep in mind the oceans of the world are huge and no one knows for certain exactly how many of each species are indeed in the oceans, all they
are doing is making estimates and many of those estimates have been proven wrong time and time again. I rest my case.
