    Yes, I heard this as well. Fox was not alone in reporting it. I don't understand why it isn't creating more outrage, or why Obama thinks this is a great time to help assure the extinction of a linchpin species.

    I doubt the countries that whale want to "exterminate" the species. The original ban was really a moritorium to allow for stocks to replenish.

    I understand people who think all whaling is 3 inches below murder of another human, they want no whaling whatsoever and I can see the point. The fact remains that other cultures don't see it that way, and we are not talking barbaric countries here.

    Lifting the ban and replacing with a sustainable limit system was the original concept back when the ban was placed to prevent extinction of the various species. If they are recovered enough hunting should be allowed on a permitted bases to maintain the growth of the stocks.

    Naturally if you are a PETA type person I am EEEEEVVVVIIILLLL for proposing this, and will quietly slink away and enjoy my steak.
