I think I have done my fair share for the natural world both volunteering locally and in donations for organizations who I think are effective, and can work well with others, without p***ing off everyone. What have you done?
IMO SS will never be very effective, and the organization will die with your overly egotistical captain, whose memory will shortly fade into oblivion.
Of course you don't think that quote was taken out of context. You just visit pro-whaling blogs and take snippets and soundbytes off of such websites and think that everything you read about Sea Shepherd there must be true so long as you understand it in the worst possible context. The context of that statement was describing the strategy in the media. For clarification, Paul Watson explains: "I think it was President Ronald Reagan who put that particular media strategy into effect, a tradition now utilized by the FOX network every day." We've lost thousands of brave young men and women in Iraq on a pack of lies. But that's acceptable while employing even more of the same lies to take people out of context just to slander them is acceptable. At least you do it anonymously.
I've already explained what I've done in the SSS Bob Barker thread. Please visit there and participate for further information. What organizations do you think are effective and why?
