10. Nah, not many of us club seals, mainly the native fishermen and
those who depend on the food and sales to live. It's also been studied and regulated so as to be done in the most humane way possible. Watch Food, Inc. and let me know how humanely the meat industry is there, here or anywhere else. What this has to do with the Tarsands from which you get YOUR oil, is beyond me. I guess it's easy to bring up strawman arguments when you're perfect. Although I have been reading of a very sad BP spill recently. And I do mean sad, especially for those men who died and the impact it will have for decades. We're all guilty of abusing this precious resource and being superbly lazy when it comes to real alternatives, picking out one country for supplying it while ignoring the impact of the rest is disingenuous and pissy.
