Still, be these things said with all diffidence and openness to correction. -C.E. Montague
You want to help? Pay attention. Caring about the condition of our oceans does not make you a psycho, tree-hugging, bleeding-heart liberal, it just makes you smart.
The health of all life on this planet depends on the health of the oceans. It’s just good business.
So watch what you eat, and don’t eat fish that are being over-fished. And don’t pour the used oil from your oil change down the storm drain unless you want your next shrimp platter to taste like Quaker state and you sort of like the idea of having your own children born with flippers.
And go look at some whales. Not captive ones, wild ones. It all comes down to economics, and as long as it’s more profitable to have whales around to look at, we’ll have them around to look at.
If you don’t live near water and can’t get to any, rent a whale video. It all comes around.
Barring that, just yell at people randomly to stop killing whales. It could catch on. Really.
(“Would you like fries with that?”
“Shut up and stop killing whales!”
“Thank you. Drive through, please.”)
— Christopher Moore, Fluke
