The decision to formally resume commercial whaling is being seriously re-thought in Iceland - as can be seen from an interview with its Prime Minister Geir Haarde. From Reuters:
Haarde, facing elections on May 12, said the government must factor global criticism into its decision-making.
"It's an equation with several elements in there -- one is the market, one is world public opinion, one is tourism and so on -- and we have to weigh all these together, and the different interests, before we come up with a new decision," Haarde said.
The global outcry is obviously having an effect. Add your voice by signing the Iceland Pledge (to consider visiting if they end ALL Iceland whaling).
