This show is a comprehensive survey of the leading-edge of what is happening with cetaceans and humans, with special emphasis on New Zealand, the 'new Taiji no one is talking about.' In addition to this show, please check out the Dolphintalk show, a fantastic multilogue focusing on the threats to cetaceans from marine anthropogenic military-industrial activity. A LOT is happening with me and the cetaceans. Just about 3 hours ago here on Great Barrier Island New Zealand I witnessed the most magnificent display of bottle-nosed dolphins jumping, leaping, breaching...dozens of them very close to shore, for several hours. The only time I've seen a dolphin leap 2-3 times its body length out of the water was in Doubtful Sound in Fiordland last year. SO amazing. I have also made contact and filmed an interview with Maori whale-dreaming talking chief, who has been so kind as to share some amazing 'inside information.' His interview will be my next week's show. In addition, I have made contact with another Maori activist who is involved with the multiple cetacean strandings on the northwest coast of the north island.
New Zealand is strengthening its "100% CLEAN AND GREEN" image with the media coverage of its auctioning off hydro-carbon exploration permits for an area of 476,000 square kms, which is larger than New Zealand itself!
"The Government has released its block offer for 2015 and the area available for oil and gas exploration is bigger than the entire land mass of New Zealand…The area offshore Taiaroa Head is part of 476,000km which has been proposed for oil and gas exploration. 'Well it's absolutely ginormous; it's 80 percent larger than the entire land mass of New Zealand and it shows how National is fixated with oil drilling…' "
As I explain in On The Brink Radio #85, the global hydro-carbon and fishing industries...who represent two of the biggest threats to cetaceans...ONLY EXIST INASMUCH AS THEY ARE PROVIDING US THE PRODUCTS THAT WE DEMAND.
It's ridiculous to hand a petition to the government of a country who has already shown blatant disregard for the life of any beings on land or sea as well as demonstrating that they will bend over to pave the way to welcome the global resource extraction industry to Aotearoa. The Key administration's position on the Maui's dolphins...of whom only 50 are believed to exist, exclusively in New Zealand...is tantamount to broadcasting the message that "We the 'friendly fascist' dictators of New Zealand hereby certify in no uncertain terms that NO environmental or ecological issue at any level will prevent us from bending over fully so that your industry may come in our country..."
In a near-future show I will explain why 'live simply so that others may simply live' is THE most powerful renavigational guide that we have. Reducing or eliminating our consumption of meat...fish is meat, remember?...and hydro-carbons is not just a trendy 'feel-good' suggestion; au contraire...with respect to the human relationship with Mother Earth and mitakuye oyasin, actions speak VERY MUCH louder than words.
British researcher Dr. Rupert Sheldrake founded the science of 'morphogenetics' which describes the holographic interconnectedness of everything at all levels. When the 'hundredth monkey' decides to renavigate his life in such a way as to dramatically reduce the impact of his role as a soldier in World War 3, THEN Mother Earth might say to herself, 'Well, I might keep a few of these around after all.'
