If the Japanese whaling fleet go back to commercial whaling, what’s changed from scientific?

Next July as far as I’m concerned all bets are off. Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) should take a more drastic approach with saving whales. More so than what they did in the past.

I’d like to suggest what could be effective but I don’t think the The Echo editor would print it!

The Japanese, by leaving the International Whaling Commission (IWC), will give themselves a licence to kill as many whales as they can with no quota. My support goes to the SSCS anti-whaling fleet and may they strike where it hurts the most.
