It seems like a very worthwhile issue for all to be concerned with.

Perhaps if all the attention given to the non-issue of Japan catching a conservative number of whales each year were directed at the deforestation issue, there might be more progress and the world could become a better place for us.

It's staggering to me, really.

Who is with me on this? Few might even read this article I cynically fear...
