Thinking Allowed, Japan, Crucitas

The other day I was listening to the "Thinking Allowed" podcast from the BBC, and they mentioned some of the consequences of climate change.

New fact: If the ice caps continue melting, Canada will gain a lot of new territory.

On another note, The Land of the Rising Sun (i.e. Japan) has, obviously, allowed for the dolphin slaughter to continue. This can only be expected, as the Japanese government is one of the most corrupt and does not really care about nature. Do note that Japan changes its leader almost every two years, hence making the country very unstable. (There have been more than 53 PMs since WWII.) Here's an extract from the Save Japan Dolphins Blog:
It’s with a heavy heart that I write today’s post. Despite all our efforts and despite the worldwide condemnation of the cruel dolphin slaughter, the Japanese government remains defiant and has allowed the first dolphin kill of this season at Taiji.

This defies all logic, both because of the brutal inhumane abuse of dolphins and because it is now proved that the dolphin meat is poison -- containing dangerous levels of mercury.

Here in Costa Rica, a land known for its corrupt governments, the fight for Crucitas continues.
Keep it up, everyone!
