Public Argument - Japanese Whaling
Transcript of Public Argument - Japanese Whaling
Introduction to Public Arguments
A look at the Japanese Whaling Controversy
In order to stop harmful commercial whaling, we need to protect the waters surrounding Antarctica with a Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.
After commercial whaling was banned decades ago, a research whaling program was implemented to assess whale stocks and to, presumably, make whaling practices more sustainable.
A Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary is naive at best because, although it might put an end to commercial whaling, harmful practices will continue under the guise of research.
If whaling is to continue, for research or otherwise, both the species and Japanese consumers will face serious endangerment.
What can we do to solve this problem?
So-and-so is incorrect about x-y-z because...
Why did this happen? How could this happen?
What will happen if this
is allowed to continue?
We must address this
Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean is a problem. If we don't do something now, like put an end to commercial whaling operating under the guise of research, the consumption of toxic whale meat will continue, and the species will cease to exist.
