Good to see more and more people giving a damn! I don think that the speed advantage of this both will be of much help however, since there is no helipad and not so much space for other stuff those guys use. But than again I could be wrong, who knows.

But everyone misses the point:
\"Whales like to be harpooned, because they want to be eaten\".
You know, it\'s the circle of life thing.
The sun which is god sends love energy into the world in the form of light, the alge and the plankton grow on this, and then they decide to give it up to glorify jesus, and they choose to be eaten by krill and fish.
The krill and the fish grow on this, and then they decide to give it up to glorify jesus, and they choose to be eaten by whales.
The whales grow on this, and then they decide to give it up to glorify jesus, and they choose to be harpooned and eaten by people in Japan.
The real issue is that the people in Japan don\'t follow jesus and the holy scriptures.
God tells us in Exodus 34:12-13: \'Do not make any treaties with the people of the country into which you are going ... Instead, tear down their altars, destroy their sacred pillars, and cut down the symbols of their goddess Asherah\'.
God tells us in Deuteronomy 12:2-3 : \'In the land that you are taking, destroy all the places where the people worship their gods on high mountains, on hills, and under green trees. Tear down their altars and smash their sacred stone pillars to pieces. Burn their symbols of the goddess Asherah and chop down their idols, so that they will never again be worshipped at those places.
So the people in Sea Shepherd, if they were real christians, they would invade Japan and set fire to all their temples - after killing them all.
And then the Sea Shepherd people could hunt and kill the whales for the remaining christian people in Japan, to help them understand that when a whale chooses to give it up for jesus, they are wanting us to eat them so that as god given rulers of the earth, we can magnify and glorify god ourselves.
And when all the whales have gone back to heaven, then we can harvest all the krill - in the name of jesus.

Have I missed something?
Unless the particular type of whale is a threatened specie, what\'s the problem with killing and eating them?
Why are they so different from cows, sheep etc?
They were overfished in the past, but that was then.
Please, some consistency and logic here.

You\'re not just missing something... you\'re missing everything.
Consistency and logic? How would you ever notice it?

The Japanese whaling fleet are whaling outside of their borders and into the Antarctic whale sanctuary. They have been known to hunt endangered species because they gain a larger profit for these species.
They have previously included the Australian humpback whale in their quota for “research” purposes.
They stand by this ridiculous claim but the meat ends up in the Japanese fish market with a high percentage of people not actually knowing it is whale meat.
The Ady Gil is a welcome addition to the Sea Shepherd fleet because of its speed capabilities. The hardest part of the mission for Sea Shepherd is to locate the Japanese fleet. With both Ady Gil and the helicopter on the Steve Irwin the Sea Shepherd’s should be able to find them and stop the killing.
Stop the slaughter.

wow mr stiffy
you are one messed up sole....
please go jump of something really high onto something really hard!

Here is the logic. A person is judged by its actions. Whaling, wars and such are primitive activities. As long as we keep doing them, we stay as we are, primitive animals. If we want to become more than that, we have to stop doing them.

Biodiesel. Food out of someone\'s mouth. There are better ways to use crops than to power power boats. Like feeding those who have no freedom, let alone fertile lands to harest from. The tech of the boat is surely awesome, but why BIOfuel? Be cool, let it run on HHO on demand. That will improve mileage of a diesel engine anyway. And salty water a plenty out at see...
This world is so stupid, million, billions wasted on useless project without any useful kind of development to them. Get educated, find out which tech is already upon us, yet fully ignored (suppressed if you will) by those with power and money.

Sorry all good readers, Sorry Gizzmag,
But reading the part from Aaron McKellar I have to state next question.
Mister Aaron McKellar!
\"Are You stupid or do you have to work for it ?!! \"
What you wrote provokes all and will eventually create war.
You can not say something like that just because it\'s written. If we all believe and liv your attitude we all allow (for sample) school shootings, rape and all that horrific violence.
If your are so brave get out of you easy couch and put that book aside.
Go there and tell all Sea Shepherd crew and Jap wallers what you just stated here.
Go to japan and do the same.
Knowing these people well I\'m sure both party\'s will agree to team up and offer you to ........ ( every one can fill this in)
There is an ethical thing behind freedom of speech.
If you are a brave person you remove your Text AsAP.

Mr Thinks With His Stiffy, Mr. Immoral Inuendo Maker In Front of Kids and Christians With Evil Disregard and Hatred for Human Life, said
\"But everyone misses the point: \"Whales like to be harpooned, because they want to be eaten\".\"
You miss the point that Christians and anyone with a decent amount of common sense has been teaching for thousands of years: Mere sarcasm doesn\'t make you right.
\"You know, it\'s the circle of life thing.\"
Oh you mean like when other animals eat other animals? You moron? You forget your own ranting you stupid idiot: IF ANIMALS EAT OTHER ANIMALS DOES THAT MAKE ANIMALS BAD? AND SINCE YOU BASH THE BIBLE AREN\'T MEN JUST ANIMALS? DUR?You\'re super idiot!
\"The sun which is god sends love energy into the world in the form of light,\"
Where does the Bible say that stupid? Are you drunk and high?
\"the alge and the plankton grow on this,\"
\"and then they decide to give it up to glorify jesus,\"
The Hell are you talking about stupid?
\"and they choose to be eaten by krill and fish. The krill and the fish grow on this, and then they decide to give it up to glorify jesus, and they choose to be eaten by whales.\"
And therefore krill and fish are evil? Stay off the drugs idiot.
\"The whales grow on this, and then they decide to give it up to glorify jesus, and they choose to be harpooned and eaten by people in Japan.\"
And what point are you making by your nonsensical ranting?
\"The real issue is that the people in Japan don\'t follow jesus and the holy scriptures.\"
No, the real issue is that you make dumb stereotypes about the Japanese and every Christian and everyone who is religious and it\'s because you don\'t follow Jesus, but follow your mere feelings instead and whatever suits them.
\"God tells us in Exodus 34:12-13: \'Do not make any treaties with the people of the country into which you are going ... Instead, tear down their altars, destroy their sacred pillars, and cut down the symbols of their goddess Asherah\'.\"
And? And because you repeated with contempt for what God commanded against evil idiots like you, therefore you\'re free of sin? That\'s not how it works evil idiot. Stop whining about God judgments.
\"So the people in Sea Shepherd, if they were real christians, they would invade Japan and set fire to all their temples - after killing them all.\"
Uh, no moron. Might wanna read the rest of the Bible and stop taking it out of context. You do know what context means don\'t you idiot? Of course you do idiot, but you care more about satisfying your little genital than the truth.
\"Love your enemies\" \"Love your neighbor as yourself\" \"Do unto others as you would have them do to you.\"
Stop ignoring those verses mocker.

I say fit this beautiful vessel with missiles and see how the Whalers like having a an explosive warhead going off inside them!
That\'s how they murder whales, a harpoon isn\'t just the spear-type weapon it used to be when the fight was a much more even contest - although still completely ghastly. The objects they call harpoons today are fired from a cannon-type gun and the head has an explosive \"grenade\" in it.
These people are killing Australia\'s Whales and fire pwere should be met with fire power!

I wouldn\'t want to rain on anyone\'s parade (cancel that, this is fun) but apparently that half ton of Kevlar didn\'t stop it being Sliced In Half today. That\'s right, this very spiffy boat was run over by a japanese whaler today, and then promptly sank to bottom of the southern ocean while they were attempting to tow it back to New Zealand. I guess this is license for everyone to vent their whale lovin\' spleens in comments pages. Oh yeah, they already do. Fuel on the fire I guess. Man, those Japanese whale scientists are pretty keen on studying those whales they!

I dont have a problem with them protesting whaling but I do have a problem with their actions which endanger both them and the Japanese crewman. They are lucky someone has not been killed yet or they have not actually collided and sunk both vessels killing everyone on board since that water is so cold hypothermia would set in quickly as a few minutes. I am a boat captain and I have seen how unprofessional Greenpeace was run as I almost sunk it in Memphis Tenn. in 1989. They had no pilot on board qualified to run the Mississippi River and did not know that a down-bound vessel had the right of way. I asked them repeatedly to hold up down below the bridges as the current would set my barges to such a degree we would collide head on if they kept coming and there was not a chance I could stop going down river in between sets of bridges with terrible eddy\'s at the time which would have run me into a bridge if I had even tried it. They only came to their senses about a minute before I hit them by ramming the bank to get out of my way. I am sure the captain of the boat impressed the Mayor of Memphis and Governor of one of the states on the border with his lack of knowledge and by not having a licensed pilot on board that had knowledge of the River. I guess that was an expense they felt they did not need. I am sure the repairs to the boat cost them way more then hiring a pilot would have. I see the same type unprofessional behavior by the crew on the Sea Shepard. I understand what they are trying to do but killing people is even worse then killing whales. They should protest without putting lives in danger. Sometimes I think they care more for the whales then their own crew.
