I believe this fellow makes good sense.
If civ4 has taught me anything, it's that whaling makes for great export, especially if you're in iceland. You can trade it for useful things. Like coal.the stonker said:Are they in any risk of being stop existing?
Think about it they eat tones of food every day and they are pretty much big blubber bags.
If your arguement is "They are so cute,I wear a whale T-shirton't hurt them" then your just being irrational.
So I ask you escapists, why shouldn't we just kill the whales? More food for us and I call it survival.
P.s. I come from Iceland where whale hunting isn't so illegal and everyone frown upon it so I don't get the point.
I don't know why, but this made me laugh for five minutes straight.Wadders said:It's because they are in risk of being stop existing.

Also, care to explain WHY you need to hunt them so badly in the first place?Hardcore_gamer said:I am from Iceland to, and yes most of the foreign anti-whalers don't know jackshit what they are talking about. Thankfully the international whaling committee (I think it is called that) is discussing a change in the laws since most of its members are threatening to leave it, and they have made a proposal to Iceland that would allow us to hunt roughly 140 whales a year and its pretty decent.
No, they are in fact NOT!reg42 said:Because they're, you know, endangered.
"The whales are endangered" logic falls apart once you remind people of the fact that their are many different species of whales, and that only some of them are endangered. The species we are hunting aren't one of them.
do you realize how stupid this statement is? every animal has a very specific and important place in an every growing food chain that helps keep the planet from being overrun by a specific kind of animal, you need plants to keep herbivore's alive, bugs to keep the plants alive, birds and other insectivores to keep the insect population from exploding, small predators to keep the bird population from eating all the insects, larger predators to keep the smaller predator population down, it's a delicate balance that goes from the ants to elephants in places that both animals are present, and in the ocean the chain is even more fragile, without whales (finally OT) the krill population would explode, then everything the krill eat would die out. People who are against hunting animals are trying to preserve this cycle, and people like you are why the people against over hunting are necessaryArcWinter said:See, there is one thing that humans CAN NOT KILL OFF, or else we will all die.
That thing is PLANTS. Screw animals, they'd all die anyway. Being against killing "insert animal here" doesn't make any sense, because we can survive without them.
Oh yeah, and we'd need insects to keep the plants alive. So insects and plants. Don't kill em. Animals? Go ahead.
Woah, perfume comes in whale blubber scent? FUCKIN' Awerewolfsfury said:
People don't hunt cows. They have ranches where thousands of cows are raised for that purpose. Some small business owners get them from markets where people sell cows like my dad who raises cows to sell for there meat.Nivag the Owl said:Wait... People eat whale? I was genuinely unaware of that. In fact, I've never even pondered the meaning of whale hunting. But anyways, I would much rather they weren't hunted... In the same way that I would much rather cows weren't hunted. But that doesn't mean I'm not going to eat them.
I dont get it...what was he saying? And i don't think that people beat whales to death. I don't think its possible. and still What???skywalkerlion said:
I shall never whale after watching this.
Prepare to be scarred for life before you hit that play button.
He who posts that thread is the correct one.Irridium said:People are probably for saving the whales because they, um, help stop global warming [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/columns/science/7480-Science-Whales-Fight-Global-Warming.4]
