    A small victory for whales (and a slightly positive sign for the 'humaneness' of humanity):

    Wow, good news in the Political section? That is good news. Over fishing in general is an important environmental issue, that once taken too far, there would be no recovery. Japan has certainly been one the major culprits.

    And speaking of the environment, in an interview on MSNBC I was glad to hear McCain say the U.S. needs to get with the program on global warming--especially before expecting China and India to do likewise.

    If this trend keeps up, pretty soon Arildno is going to have to catch his own dinner.

    Yep - sometimes all this bad news totally overwhelms me - it was great to have some good news to point out for a change :smile:
    Too true about the over-fishing, 2CentsWorth - I feel most sorry for the 'small' fishermen, whose entire livelihood has disappeared as a result of overfishing by massive trawlers. A google search for more information on this topic brought up Chapter 4 of the Hypertext Book on Biodiversity and Conservation http://darwin.bio.uci.edu/~sustain/bio65/lec04/b65lec04.htm [Broken] - looks like an informative reference...
    Good stuff, 2CentsWorth - I was hoping others would contribute more good news on this thread :biggrin:
