  1. Good! And I’m glad the Florianopolis Declaration was passed too. That’s what I had associated with Brazil in the earlier post by Cap’n Watson. I see an article about the Japanese whale hunter’s perspective? Don’t care. 🙂

  2. Research WARNING: of UNHEALTHY & FUTURE CRISIS
    1) Whales eat kelp,krill and other small items of the sea.
    Confirmed: I have seen a beached whale full of plastic and Microscopic BPA plastic pollutes seas.
    2) Therefore humans depend on whales to keep seas clean
    3) UNHEALTHY: So Whales meat is contaminated with BPA plastic: Weakens all parts of humans.
    4) FUTURE CRISIS: Whales Extinction will get Ocean More Contaminated with BPA Plastic bankrupting Many fishermen when finding BPA in fish

    P.S. I used to live in Nippon 1980-84 and know y’all are Tough & Loyal & Honest.
    The 3rd book I’m writing reveals the Secret Sumo Wrestlers aren’t fat but strong & tough Highlanders like Scottish men.
    WARNING: If JAPAN DOESN’T BAN WHALING THAT will MICROSCOPICALLY POLLUTE SEAS
    I’ll add to the book I’m about to Publish “Japanese are Overwhelming Fools” and REMOVE Sumo Wrestlers are Strong as Scottish men. Also Hide Japanese Honesty & Loyalty.
    FOR The book I’m about to publish might make it as far as “Harry Potter”
    (1st book rated 5 stars & thriller) Current book editing (Less exciting but lots of health help)
    Email me if Japan Bans Whaling
    Because Media has more control over Nations than Governments do
    No EMAIL=LOTS OF SHAME!
