The former Agent 007 likes his whales alive! Pierce Brosnan is calling for an end to Iceland’s whale hunt.
National Resources Defense Council and is leading their campaign to stop Icelandic whaling.
In a recent post on OnEarth, the actor said:
“Last December, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and other groups filed a petition to stop Iceland’s rogue whaling. In response, the U.S. Commerce Secretary recently declared that Iceland is defying the international ban on commercial whaling. That declaration started the clock ticking on a 60-day period during which President Obama must decide whether or not to impose trade sanctions on Iceland. President Obama should begin by targeting imports from those Icelandic seafood companies directly tied to the whaling industry.”
We think this is a great idea!!
But instead of writing about it we think the action star should do what he does best: face off against the whale hunters man to person!!
We just hope he doesn't try to win them over with song. We all know what happened in Mamma Mia.
