If we can’t even agree to save Bluefin Tuna…

… what chance is there that we’ll agree to save humanity?

BBC news had this to say today:

 

A proposal to ban international trade in Atlantic bluefin tuna, which is a sushi mainstay in Japan, has been rejected by a UN wildlife meeting.

Thursday’s decision occurred after Japan, Canada and many poor nations opposed the measure on the grounds it would devastate fishing economies.

Yeah, guys… and it’s not like it’s going to devastate fishing economies when you’ve killed every last fish in every ocean, right?

    ^5 back at you, JM :)蕭秉蓉: That proverb needs updating, to: "A bird in the hand is only worth two in the bush if there ARE two in the bush"…
