The vast majority of the "world" doesn't really care about whales, whaling, whalers, or Watson's blathering. You can demand an international boycott but you're not going to get any nation to follow your lead. -

arrestpaul ... perhaps the vast majority of 'your world' doesn't really care about whales, but the vast majority of the 'rest of the world' arguably does. otherwise there wouldn't be all this 'blathering'.

Virtual warehousing, where donated goods remain either with the person donating until required, or in a central warehouse ready for distribution as required.

Posted in: Quake-hit areas stuck with huge amount of unwanted donated items See in context

In Australia there is a 'donation portal' (GIVIT.org.au) which connects those that wish to donate goods and services, with those that need them. Charities (on the GIVIT List) and Donors (in the Virtual Warehouse) will specify if they wish the item to be picked up or delivered. Once an item has been donated (virtually), the charity and donors details are exchanged and they then organise delivery. Perhaps that could work well in Japan and would alleviate stockpiles of 'unwanted' goods.
