Reform the International Whaling Commission

    1. Petition by

      Greenpeace

The Japanese whaling fleet is in the Southern Ocean again this year killing whales. And they’ll be there next year and every year after that if nothing changes at the International Whaling Commission (IWC). But there’s hope. Not only does President Obama have the power to make those changes; he’s already promised he would. Here’s what he told Greenpeace back in 2008:

"As president, I will ensure that the U.S. provides leadership in enforcing international wildlife protection agreements, including strengthening the international moratorium on commercial whaling. Allowing Japan to continue commercial whaling is unacceptable."

It’s time for President Obama to keep his word and save the whales. Tell him to end commercial whaling once and for all by reforming the IWC.

      Reality Check:

      No matter what people say and do it is as GOD WILLS IT!!!

      And if GOD does not like something he will make it be known!!

      Remeber we are all living on a melting pot of a planet, the core of the planet is as hot as the sun and who is protecting us, God!!!

      You can do all the wrong you want, but don't forget that when the time come when you are DYING, you can not ask God to forgive you for all the Cruelty that you have inflicted on his Creation because he will NOT listen!

      And if you do not believe in God, then the more fool you!!
