Save the Whales!

 Hi Everyone...

This video is from the BBC.

Check out this wonderful piece from the BBC this past Jan. 

Each whale is worth 1Tn as far as what it does for our planet in feeding others and carbon sequestering when it dies. The article states it feeds 200 different species when it dies and the plumes of fecal material feeds the Phytoplankton. The Phytoplankton capture 40% of the carbon...4X that of the Amazon Rain Forest! Due to commercial whaling in the past, whales have declined 66-90%!! That added 70M tonnes of carbon dioxide to the planet, though the article says 15M cars to that in 1 day and in the US we hve 235M cars!!! So YES...SAVE THE WHALES!!!
