So what's up with Greenpeace and this whole whaling thing? The Japanese are trying to kill whales right now, but you would hardly know it from the Greenpeace web site. Yes they have a few links to stories about it, but it hardly seems to be of much importance. This is what they are all about isn't it? Yes, I know they do other things, but don't you think they should be raising hell during whaling season. Am I missing something here?
I'll be honest, I'm more partial to Sea Shepherd's aggressive tactics. And not just because of the bad-ass t-shirt I bought. But, aside from the aggressive tactics, Sea Shepherd is trying to stop the whaling
Greenpeace raised a stink, chased them for a bit with the Esperanza and then went home while patting themselves on the back for delaying them for two whole weeks. Pah! What kind of crap is that? Use whatever tactics you want, but at least have some fire in the belly. A two week reprieve is all they're willing to give the whales? That hardly seems like much of a return on investment for anyone donating to save the whales. Paul Watson may be controversial, but at least you know if you give him money it will go to where the rubber hits the road so to speak.
Again, I don't ask that they adopt Sea Shepherd's tactics. But I do think they owe it to the whales to do more then delay a death sentence.
