I’m sure many people are, like myself, happy that South Korea has decided it will not be carrying out whaling for “scientific research.”
Scientific research has been used by a number of nations to justify whaling, however, has anyone
1) seen such research published in a scientific journal?
2) seen an explanation of what the research is trying to find out?
I suspect not.
I find offensive that “science” is used as a justification for killing such incredible creatures, when it is patently obvious this is not why they are being killed.
