I just love watching Whale Wars, and I root against the Sea Shepherds because they are morons. It seems to me, that the only way for them to win this debate with those who kill whales to eat is to hit on the mercury poisoning thing. I seriously doubt it would stop whaling altogether and I don't think they can win in that regard ever anyways.
However, if I were a whaler, I would be much more inclined to stop or reduce whale consumption if I felt that it had a negative health impact on me than simply because Paul Watson views it as murder and people who kill whales as psychopaths (which is laughable).
I am also curious to know if these Sea Shepherd people are all vegetarians. Seems like it would be hypocritical of them not to be.
I thought it was hilarious that they view their mission as a success even though the foroes people had a grind 7 days after they left.
Also, considering these people eat seagulls, they must be starving.
