I not only agree with the Japanese and Norwegian position that hunting non-endangered species of whales should be allowed for culture purposes, but I also think that hunting non-endangered species of whales should not even be considered illegal. The main reason hunting non-endangered species of whales was banned in the first place was because the dominant culture that made the decision valued the lives of whales and believed they should be protected from whaling. We allow hunting of deer and fishing of shrimp, but not hunting of whales and on the fact that we love whales so much. This whaling ban is a significant violation of the sovereignty of Japan and Norway as well as other cultures that practice whaling. We are essentially saying, “Since we love whales so much you are not allowed to hunt them in your own waters even though they are not even endangered because that is unethical.” I see whale hunting no more unethical than deer hunting or shrimping, so why are we still allowed to hunt deer and fish for shrimp?
This resulted into a four year long struggle with Tripoli. The US Marines landed on Libya and threatened control over Tripoli, resulting in a peace treaty being made between the United States and Tripoli. But this didn’t stop the other Barbary states, who continued to demand money. Jefferson’s actions led to other US navy missions to end all tribute payments for
This information appears to be encouraging the reader not to boycott seafood because the seafood is becoming more and more sustainable. However, the point of the boycott was to stop the hunting of harp seals; if people wanted to support the swilers, they would not boycott in the first place. This becomes red herring information (Henderson, 2013, p. 52) because it takes the focus off seal hunting, and provides irrelevant
To begin with, I am against whale captivity. I will be telling you three thing and then how I feel about them. So I hope you are ready to listen. LET 'S GO!!!! So we all know or have heard of seaworld, but when we go there and have fun we never think about how harmful it is to the killer whales and their trainers working with them.
They even began to question SeaWorld by posting those on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites that they have. The activists campaigned against SeaWorld through online petitions such as Change.org (Gibson). As stated in the Constitution, the people hold the freedom of speech, exercising this right. With all of these questions and demands for explanations, SeaWorld finally “stepped up its online game” within a few months. Despite they denied most of the accusations, labeling Blackfish a propaganda, the activists were still fighting for the end to killer whale captivity.
The military’s necessity is a very big priority. In conclusion the internment of the Japanese-Americans was justified because America needed security in the West Coast, fear of an attack/invasion, and because the internment was a military necessity. Although the internment was justified, there are many reasons why it was not justified. The Japanese were of no threat to the American society. “The Japanese here i almost exclusively a farmer, a fisherman or a small businessman”(Munson 2).
On the domestic aspect, citizens were beginning a new chapter in which they did not trust the government. Stemming back to Lyndon B Johnson and the Credibility Gap of the Vietnam War, the most recent, most devastating attitude change surrounded the Watergate Scandal and the aftermath. During Nixon’s presidency, he was attempting to bug the Democratic Party headquarters located in the Watergate Hotel. While his henchmen were placing the bugs, they were caught, thus causing a huge controversy amongst Americans. Although Nixon attempted to cover up his ties to the break in, it eventually came out that he ordered it to be done.
The constitution in 1887 was known as “the Bayonet Constitution” due to the current king at the time, King David Kalakaua, being forced to sign it at gunpoint. Queen Liliuokalani’s rewriting of the constitution provoked outrage from the Americans, and it did not go into effect. Previously, the United States did not protest Hawaii being under its control informally, with its own kingdom and rulers, but when Queen Liliuokalani challenged its intentions, it spurred a need to remove her and to annex Hawaii. After protests and neglected petitions, ships which needed a place in the middle of the Pacific to dock, unwilling Presidents, and at last, nationalism, Hawaii was officially part of the United States—first a territory in 1900—then, a state in
Japanese Internment (Executive Order 9066) Have you ever thought what happened back then,why war happened so much? Well there is one war there is one war I learned about, it’s the bombing of Pearl Harbor.This was mostly a between Japan and America. Also the united States not trusting the Japanese Americans and putting them into 10 different internment camps because of the bombing.Although Japanese Internment camps were caused by political,cultural, and economic factors, the most important causal factor was political. To start off for the first cause is economical. One quote to support my causal factor is on page 10, “They can get rid of the Japanese Americans and grab their land and possession.” This quote supports my causal factor economical
These highlighted such features as obstructions, existing pipelines and conservation areas. Taking the results of these studies into consideration the most direct pipeline route was used in order to minimize any impact on marine life. An additional reason for choosing the shortest route was to minimize the possibility of rupture which can cause severe environmental damage. Pipes were laid parallel to existing pipes if possible in order to produce less of an environmental impact and risk to other potential seabed users. Although it was preferable to avoid pipeline burial due to the length of time it can take for re-colonisation by marine species it was considered necessary to bury Pipeline A.
The overpopulation of Pollock is creating an environment with no sustainable food source for the sea lions. Commercial fishing would also provide an opportunity to fish in a way that is co-beneficial to the environment, rather than carelessly overfishing. In order for this plan to be successful, close numbers of Pollock, herring, and Western stock sea lions will have to be observed and recorded. If immediate action is taken, the sea lion population could rebound within a few generations. The stakeholders in this issue are environmental groups, such as Greenpeace, who firstly advocated for the ban on commercially fishing Pollock in Alaska, as well as the Federal government, who passed the legislature.
Just last month California signed the Orca Protection and Safety Act that will hopefully become the first of many pieces of legislation coming to support the orca population. This legislation bans the breeding of killer whales, as well as keeping them in captivity for the purpose of entertainment. This issue has been in the public eye for many years but really came more to the forefront in 2013 when the documentary "Blackfish" was released. This documentary re-started the conversation about keeping killer orca whales in captivity. It highlighted the dilemma on multiple different levels including the emotional and sympathetic side of the issue, the ethics of keeping these animals in captivity as well as the scientific logic against this practice.
In the other hand, the speaker contends this by explaining that whales were declined because of the human hunting , orcas changed their diet to survive and because just of the sea mammals were available, human started to hunt sea mammals and cause the decline. Third, the author asserts that scientist believed that the pollution hypothesis could also the uneven pattern of otters decline. However, the professor opposes this pint by explaining that the uneven pattern is better explained by orcas predation theory. she added that it depends on whether the location is accessible by orcas or not, so because orcas are large, they can 't access the shallow region where sea otters have not
2,403 Americans were killed and 1,178 others were wounded. Many after effects had to be faced after the Pearl Harbor Bombing. Before the attack on Pearl Harbor America was opposed to entering the war that was going on at that time, but after the bombing America knew they were the target of attacks so they decided to join the war in Europe. The initial decision to go to war was to specifically get back at Japan. Later on though, they ended up having to fight more countries than just
However, the United States government is one of the few countries that actually has the money to continue importing oil from foreign nations. Why not continue to use it? Markey states that even if we were to use our own land for the drilling of oil, “it would only reduce our foreign oil dependence from 56 percent today to 50 percent 10 years from now” (Markey, 2001, para 18). In a nutshell, this is logically not a big enough percentage difference to make us even want to consider drilling on American soil with the immense possibility that this attack on the environment would kill and/or relocate hundreds of thousands of wildlife creatures and nature’s plant
