Back to back whale wars

I’m in season two of “Whale Wars,” and my beloved if flawed heroes are facing LRADs, hardware, and nets that protect the whalers from their butter bombs. While I oppose whaling and most commercial fishing – sorry, it tends not to be sustainable when it’s not just for a local market – the drama itself is just delicious.

Whatever one’s opinion of whaling, the conflict between idealists  looking to take a stand here and roll back much of what is wrong with the world versus a big monied exploiter is fascinating. And touching.
