As someone who doesn't even eat meat (just seems wrong to kill them somehow, even worse when you consider the global warming implications of animals for food) I can't help but admire the brave folk on the anti-whaling ship the Steve Irwin, which has arrived in Hobart to refuel this weekend, skull and crossbones proudly flying.

The ship docked in Hobart this afternoon after pursuing Japanese whalers in the Southern Ocean for several weeks and the bow bears testament to just how tough that pursuit has been. Plenty of video footage on youTube. Anyone who knows the sea will know just how tough this kind of action must be. Just like the late Steve Irwin, these are brave folk.
