    Unfortunately that graph has a very poor quality appearance to it, If I made a graph it would probably look like that.

    If a Green peace protester said to me that it was raining I would have to look out of the window.

    I'm having fun looking stuff up, let's see what might be out there.

    Don't know how reliable this is, but it is more information

    Here's the kind of stuff in it

    I'm also not sure why it was posted to begin with. What is it meant to prove?

    I was married once, I wont be doing that again. Like wise if some one lies to me thats it im done ill never believe them again.

    Paul Watson on VDO said that the Ady Gil was stationary and the Whaler rammed them.

    The VDO simply does not show that or could it be possible, nay infact it shows the opposite. Now if this guy wants credibility and he needs it for his quest, well Im sorry he aint got none.

    If he said it was raining I would have to look out of the window. And if Greanpeace wants to continue on this whaling thing they need to get rid of Watson now.

    Oh and you would think he would have learned a bit of Japanese too, but on a documentary I saw he pushed the translator aside and started to tout the Japanese in English, well the cameras where the on the bridge you see and that made him look good -----NOT.

    Watson and his buffoonery along with his gung ho crew are a contributory factor to the whales still being hunted.

    Too bad the Ady Gil didn't have a couple of bulkheads to keep flooding of that long slender nose under control in the event of such a strike.

    "looks like a consistent surplus to me" - Maybe the Japanese are Mormons...again, what does it have to do with anything? Are you trying to demonstrate that the Japanese are responsible? What do you have in your pantry - NOTHING?

    Too bad it was there in the first place torturing innocent people trying to earn an honest living.

    That boat was purpose built and (the boat itself) performed flawlessly in taking the second fastest time for a powerboat around the world (third fastest, overall). It had ABSOLUTELY no efficient purpose after that other than to be martyred by the SS Brain trust.

    Time to dream about whale cheeseburgers with onions. Good night, friends.

    actually the most noteworthy aspect of the graph is that it appears that scientific whaling just happens to coincide awfully dam closely with consumer demand for whale meat

    I dont think they are fooling anyone by calling it "scientific whaling"

    Paul Watson is not a member or part of green peace any more
    hasnt been for a long time

    whats the scoop
    is the Andy Gill still floating

    oh and again
    what boat did Watson abandon previously and where can I find info on the circumstances of its grounding or abandonment


    I gotta admit Im not real impressed with this Watson idiot
    his people seem incompetent and his technique seems infective
    he also wrecked a perfectly good boat in what is obviously a very poor use of resources
    typically poor leaders pick poor followers

    He, nor his followers, are qualified to do much more than pull espresso - that is why disillusioned Egyptian students become terrorists, why inner-city poor turn to drugs, why Watson and his ilk do this. "Might as well". Their plight is more hopeless than a minke on the stern ramp of the Nisshin Maru! Why doesn't one see a conservative on the protest boat? He's taking care of his family by holding a job.

    Ah--that explains the stuff I was reading on a web site. It talked of Watson being furious with GP because they would not tell Watson where the whalers were.

    It was also accompanied with pictures of Gp and watsons boat firing water at each other in front of the Japs.

    The Japs must think they are lunatics.
