The Japanese government says it kills whales for scientific purposes only, and should be allowed to do so. This (along with other pictures) puts paid to that lie, I think. And the interesting part is, as this article states, that the photos weren’t taken by Greenpeace or other environmental activists, rather the Australian government itself. After so many years in the political wilderness, Australia really is now leading the way and are putting their money where their mouth is on the environment, as Kevin Rudd promised when taking power. If he really is prepared to piss Japan off more than this spat, he’ll be an example for all his contemporaries. I live in hope.
