Whaling cruel and not sustainable- Obama going back on his word,

Paul S.

Whaling is not sustainable: "14 days left "
Whale droppings is vital to ocean’s carbon cycle Saving endangered baleen whales could boost the carbon storage capacity of the Southern Ocean, suggests a new study of whale feces. Whale feces once provided huge quantities of iron to a now anaemic Southern Ocean, boosting the growth of carbon-sequestering phytoplankton.

A) whales mature slowly, the impact of even a single death will have long
reaching effects for the future of that species and, ultimately on
the environment as a whole.

B) Unsustainable fuel is consumed by the whaling fleets en route to the Antarctic and other open seas. Also, fuel is consumed by the freezing ship for transporting the byproducts of whaling to the Japanese markets.
