In the New York Times, the academy award-winning director of The Cove and I disagree on best strategy to appeal for an end to the killing. http://nyti.ms/aL0Xwg
Plus, what are the reasons we’re more upset about Japan than the Faroese pilot whale hunt?
Not mentioned: Whale watching is worth much more than whale killing in places where the public has easy access. The town where The Cove was filmed has now had so much free publicity that they’d be crazy not to capitalize on a turnaround from killing to admiring. I’m sure the informed public would be pleased to help them make the transition into modernity.
