The Green Quote: Pierce Brosnan Frustrated By U.S. Whaling Plan
“They [the U.S. government] seem to be in favor of allowing Japan and Norway to go out and hunt whales again. It means they can go out there and start killing whales. It’s in moratorium so it’s not determined how many they can kill. Normally, there’s no justification for killing these creatures. Scientifically, there’s no justification. So if you want to do something about stopping the possible slaughter of whales, then you have to pick up the phone and call The White House.
“That is why this film [Disney’s Oceans] is so important to be seen. I think it will inspire many young people to do good things for the ocean… That is why I’m so passionate about this movie, so people can go see it and hopefully oppose this deal agreement.
“These creatures are in jeopardy once more.”
-Actor Pierce Brosnan speaking out against a U.S. plan to allow overseas whaling. Brosnan narrates Disney’s ‘Oceans’ and has proved over the years to be quite the eco activist. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: blue is the new green. Water issues are slowly becoming more mainstream and we’re excited to see Pierce speaking his mind!
