The US Pledges $38 Billion Aid
To Fukushima Disaster Cleanup
Why hasn’t there been a global task force assembled to help solve this problem!? Do you honestly think Israel is in more danger than our Killer Whales?
“We haven’t had any survivals in babies for a couple of years. We have had stillborns and newborns die… It’s like zero survival in birth rate here.” Howard Garrett of Orca Network said… “There was a calf born in early September that lived less than a month and that was the first calf in two years… There should be two or three births at least per year… Instead, there have been seven mortalities and no births.” – Howard Garrett, Orca Network
A Simple Matter of Priorities
If the US Government can afford to give $38 Billion to a foreign nations military, why can we not afford to save the whales? I’ll bet that wouldn’t even cost $1 Billion – but we may never know.
Instead of sending drones with missiles into Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, and other parts of the Middle East, why not send drones to monitor the health of Orca pods and provide assistance where we can? Instead of sending warships to the South China Sea in an attempt to intimidate China; why not send Aid ships and the US Army Corps of Engineers to Japan to help contain the Fukushima disaster?
It’s time we as a species grew up and started prioritizing where we focus our attention and where we focus our money. Our planet is dying, and we are allowing it by not speaking up and forcing our elected officials to intervene.
Fuck military intervention in Syria; I want military intervention in Fukushima. Fuck aid to Israel, I want aid to the refugees of the Syrian conflict! How about you?
