Most of you know by now that the International Justice court in The Hague recently ruled in favor of Australia and New Zealand, and against Japan regarding the killing of whales under the guise of “Research.” Bill Maher’s subsequent interview with Paul Watson, founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, was expected to be spent talking about the decision. A few minutes were spent on that, but within the following video, they went a lot further. No one to date has ever done such a fine, eloquent and concise job of describing the state of the oceans and the consequences of continuing to do things as we’ve been doing them.
Yes, you heard him correctly, and he’s right. The ocean will likely be dead by 2048… and, as is our slogan, as go the oceans, so go we. Premier leaders all agree. As Dr. Sylvia Earle said, even if you never set eyes on the ocean, never touch a toe in those waters, they still affect you with every breath you take.
Do take this seriously, friends. Share it far and wide. If we don’t control ourselves, don’t put a rapid end to our polluting, Climate Change WILL take us out, and all the other amazing, wonderful beings, our fellow earthlings, will die with us, because of us. It is not too late, but there is NO time to waste!
