It is an ominous sign when the doctors of the sea -- the dolphins and whales -- are ill. We cannot continue to plunder and pollute the oceans any longer.
While most of the conscientious world has been overwhelmed with the pictures of the gruesome kidnapping and grotesque Japanese slaughtering of Bottlenose dolphins in the cove of Taiji, Japan - 9,000 miles away the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has been protecting the sentient whales off the Antarctic shores from other Japanese ocean-killers.
Bullies are loathsome. What's occurring this very second as I pen yet another article about Japan's odious sense of entitlement over all sea life is the gory, brutal and inhumane bloodlust in the Taiji cove as the War Against Nature is raging, again.
There's a crisis of epic proportion occurring on our planet 24/7, 365: 'The War Against Nature' has become a prolonged looting spree -- plundering terrestrial and oceanic wildlife on a global tear never witnessed before.
A 50-year career on television with the longest running daytime game show 'The Price is Right' is certainly remarkable. But there's another side to Bob Barker beyond his successful daytime job that is astonishing and brought an ear-to-ear grin across my face.
Despite mounting evidence that global warming is leading to devastating environmental disasters in the Pacific region, the U.S. and its partners are suspicious of climate change advocates. Rather brazenly, Washington and its Pacific allies spy on those who are intent on reining in global warming.
Burning fossil fuels since the 1850s has directly caused the oceans to become 26 percent more acidic. This is an epic man-made disaster.
The same U.S. news media that are conveying the preciousness of children so terribly harmed in Boston are scarcely interested in children like Guljumma.
Izumi Ishii was born into a dolphin hunting family in Futo, Japan. Today he's a self-proclaimed advocate for stopping the dolphin hunt and live trade of dolphins and whales to dolphinariums.
This morning (February 20, 2013) the news from Down Under reported that Japan has halted its whale hunt in the Great Southern Ocean Sanctuary. Amidst ...
Twenty years ago in Australia I helped free a bottlenose dolphin from a driftnet. In 2004 a small pod of bottlenose dolphins protected four swimmers f...
"The War Against Nature" and the great whales must end after this 2013 season. No country has the right of entitlement to destroy the ocean -- our commons and our birthright -- especially in an international sanctuary.
I firmly believe that our species has begun to reunite economics and ecology for a sustainable future. Here are just a few examples of environmental triumphs that we can all celebrate from 2012.
For the past eight years the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society led by Captain Paul Watson has prosecuted anti-whaling campaigns near Antarctica and disrupted the annual Japanese whaling hunt. I spoke to Paul Watson via Skype on board the SSS Steve Irwin.
After a scare, I am happy to say that the Koreans have seen the error of their ways and have decided to not begin "scientific" whaling. So why can't we reach Japan?
Animals are very good at what they do or they wouldn't have made it through the process of natural selection, let alone the spread of humanity across the earth. If what an animal does is kill things, then unless it's a very small animal, I don't get close to it.
