Pete Bethune, who resigned from Sea Shepherd earlier this month, has released his new book “Whale Warrior”; billed as a tell-all behind the dramatic events that occurred in the Southern Ocean last year. From the site,

“In a frank account filled with high action, humour and emotion, Pete Bethune describes the events which led up to the ramming of Sea Shepherd’s the Ady Gil,his dramatic boarding, detention on the Shonan Maru, arrest on arrival in Tokyo and subsequent long ordeal in jail awaiting trial and sentencing.”

While the book literally just came out, at least one commenter over on the Planet Oceans Alliance forum gave it an early thumbs up saying, “I actually had the pleasure of reading some of it last week when he was in LA. It’s an absolute awesome read.”

Bethune, who recently announced plans to look into building a successor to the Ady Gil, is focusing on continuing his ocean conservation work with a possible campaign in the Faroe islands next year. If you’re interested in purchasing his book ($30US), jump here for ordering outside of NZ and Australia or here for within.

    Anyone have a contact email address? I ordered this book a month ago but still haven’t received it 🙁

      I couldn’t find the book on Amazon, and that’s never a good sign. I clicked the link in the above article and the site looked shady. I hope you get your book b/c it certainly isn’t cheap. It’s too bad Pete Bethune couldn’t get a better publisher for his story. 🙁

The desire to be consistent morally results in an illogical rationalization of this nonsensical belief that it’s okay to eat the animals we claim to love.

Compared to the modern world, it was much harder to be vegan in Ma‘arrī’s time and place due to the religious and social pressures.

If the Syrian author of that poem could go vegan, anyone in our era can buck far milder social pressures and go vegan.
