Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I posted a comment above on the Norway exporting whale meat to Japan with links.

The IWC numbers of minke whales in the North Atlantic have been disputed. I have some material on Minke Whale numbers if you want.

I backed up my final statement about greed with the proof of exports to Japan.

I am simply asking how feeding on minke whale is intrinsically worse than feeding on all the other kinds of meat eaten every day the world across. That is all.

It is not comparable because whales cannot be bred domestically for human consumption, their numbers are declining and cannot be replaced.

Since the Minke whale meat sent to Japan by Norway has been found to contain toxins like PCB's there is no point in promoting its consumption. Only 2% of Norwegians eat whale meat, they think it is so 'yesterday.'

Now please stop stating that my statements are "false" because you do not agree with them. I have backed up everything I posted.

Thanks for the discussion.

I'm off.
