Introducing Titan

Point of No Return

Point of No Return

Introduction to Triton

Everybody, please meet Triton
Forgive me if these pictures frighten
The magnitude of these foul ships
Forces one to come to grips

Just how much oil do we need
When does good sense outpace greed
Hard work just brought back the whale
Now these fools are straining shale

Pointed ship and kind of stocky
Made with pride in Nagasaki
Please don’t buy from Mitsubishi
Always up to something fishy

Live aboard or land your chopper
One good missile, that would stop her
Triton, this is Planet Mother:
Stop pretending there’s another

National Disgrace

National Geographic" How best to kill it?"

National Geographic” How best to kill it?”

National Disgrace

National Geographic
Dance the light fantastic
But your soul has grown cold;
your morals elastic

Adventurous mag of my childhood
whisked me away from that neighborhood
But somewhere your heart washed ashore
In its place on your chest is an open sore

Nat Geo, what the hell-
Partying up to Royal Dutch Shell?
Leading the nation in oil exploration
Integrity on melancholy vacation

They’re up on the beach
And what do you teach?
The best way to kill them
You son of a…

Nat Geo is the sponsor of world oceans summit 2014 in Halfmoon Bay- *BUT* instead of pondering why the whales strand, the focus is better ways of euthanasia:

In our posting last week entitled ‘Haunted House on Half Moon Hill’, I wrote about the shameful participants in World Oceans Summit 2014, to be held in the Ritz Carlton mansion in Half Moon Bay later this month (Feb 24-27). The cost alone should get your attention! It’s several thousand dollars to get in the door!

http://www.economistinsights.com/sustainability-resources/event/world-ocean-summit-2014

The event is a whose who of ocean extraction and no action activist’s in activist inaction. Royal Dutch Shell, the worlds most deadly company, the World Bank, in charge of development in 89 countries around the world, and many others. All coming together pretending to be an environmental meeting, but instead it’s about carving up the ocean as they once subdivided the land.

And instead of asking their guests of honor why they are killing whales with seismic tests and sonar, and factory-overfishing and mining and more, instead, the focus is on easier ways to kill whales who dare wash ashore, causing embarrassment and scrutiny for these huge multi national corporations who want to extract our oceans to death.

Shame on National Geographic. Shell, burn in hell.

Roses and Prayers

Roses and Prayers

With roses and prayers, let abundance increase
said the good Brother Michael on a mission of peace
Ribbon Eels, Nudibranchs, Jellyfish strings
These are among the most beautiful things

Whale spouts cascading, migrations parading
A sailors return to a lover there waiting
Bubbles from deep, where the sea chose to keep
an anonymous wreck, hold still laden with teak

Depth without measure, oft laden with treasure
where divers seek danger and mermaids seek pleasure
Unbridled seahorses ridden by none
exposing the handle of Blue Beard’s own gun

So many secrets are kept by the sea
and we are the keepers of antiquity
Keepers of life, keepers of gold
And both may ye find there in that cargo hold!

Thank you Brother Michael J Phillips for your part in our Thank You Whales ceremony Saturday in Avila! I am sure the good will you worked to create will keep bringing about miracles like this one below, news from our good friends at OCEANA:

‘We have some big news on seismic airgun testing this week! Thanks to the spirited debate brought on by activists like you, the Department of the Interior announced a six-month delay on their seismic airgun decision. This means we’ll see no seismic airgun blasts in the Atlantic this year and have more opportunities to convince them to make the right choice and halt testing for good’.

Thank You Whales 2013

August 17th- make plans to be there!

August 17th- make plans to be there!

Get ready for the 3rd annual 'Thank You Whales' celebration, coming August 17th, 2013 on Old Port Beach in Avila, California. This yearly celebration commemorates the arrival of whales at the gates of the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant in 2012. The whales arrived in pre-hunting numbers, coinciding with the Chumash celebration of their vollages and canoes known as 'Tomol', and it all happened just in time to garner the world media attention needed to Stop the Diablo Canyon Seismic Testing. Many people and organizations bonded together to help, and the California Coastal Commission played a leadership role, with their historic November 14th 'NO HIGH ENERGY 260 DECIBEL SEISMIC TESTING IN CALIFORNIA WATERS' decision, but it was the whales of Avila- a modern day bona fide miracle- that really saved 500 or so nautical miles of marine ecosystem!  This sponsors for Thank You Whales this year show those bonds have grown even stronger between us all, and we hope you will be there, August 17th, 2013, Old Port Beach, Avila, starts at 10:00am. Look for the huge whale statue!  *VERY* Special speakers!  Love and respect,  joey racano

It Happened on Earth Day

It Happened on Earth Day

It happened on Earth Day, Washington, DC
A 90 foot Great Blue Whale came from the sea
Center stage, Freedom Plaza, she spread her great fins
Her message was, “Save me and everybody wins!”

The press did the coverage, the whale did the rest
Pin one more Earth-medal on Sir-Gershon’s chest
A great whale emergency in the Washington Post
Great Whale Conservancy, we love you the most!

www.GreatWhaleConservancy.org

joey’s note: you can read on, or skip to the bottom for petitions to sign…

An Ocean of Action!

What did you do on Earth Day? Did you celebrate, or did you make something cool happen and celebrate too? Don’t tell us, we already know the answer- this is a family of heroes! 🙂 Well, while you were out kicking butt, we want to tell you that our own beloved Mz Blue (a 90 foot long exact replica of an actual Great Blue Whale who lives in the Sea of Cortez, aka the Vermillion Sea’) was spotted on the grounds of Freedom Plaza in Washington DC. She was bringing attention to the plight of our marine cousins from the many threats now facing them. These threats include:

*Ship strikes, which are becoming all too common. Recently in California, there was a proposal to move shipping lanes, but it was not enough to save Mz Blue. Those lanes must be moved outside of the Channel Islands, according to our experts!

*Seismic Testing. Even though places like Los Angeles are moving from coal to natural gas fired power plants, there will still be seismic testing to search for oil and natural gas, (as well as once through cooling which destroys plankton when sea water is pumped into intakes). Seismic testing is a threat to whales on both U.S. coasts as well as in 70% of the oceans around the globe!

*Noise pollution. Whales have very low voices and historically were able to talk across whole oceans! Now that has been reduced to 100 yards because of all the anthropomorphic noise. It needs to stop- after all, silence is golden!

*Whaling. Whaling is a barbaric olden days practice that needs to stop. We stand beside our brothers at Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as they put their own bodies in harms way to save Mz Blue!

www.seashepherd.org

*SONAR. The US Navy intends to do HSTT (Hawaii-Southern California Training and Testing), which is expected to kill many whales during ocean war games in the SE Pacific over a 5-year period starting January 2014.

*Ignorance. Education is the key, and we stand beside our brothers and sisters in Oceana www.oceana.org and Greenpeace USA www.greenpeace.org as they wage massive campaigns across the continent and world, educating and organizing the future ocean and Earth-warriors of tomorrow.

Here’s a great report on the Earth Day event from NRDC:

Save the World in 30 Days

Save the World in Thirty Days

With a whale of an emergency
I come to you with urgency
about a seismic test insurgency
converging on the virgin sea

As giant storms keep forming
we know the Earth is warming
The oil wars keep storming
but they just keep terraforming

Miles below the soil
The oil monkeys toil
Whole oceans they despoil
To quench their thirst for oil

Offshore rigs are fixtures
like global Jack the Rippers
They’re taking seismic pictures
Maxing out the Richters

Save the World in 30 Days:

A-C-T-I-O-N * A-L-E-R-T!

The issue is SEISMIC TESTING, and you know that ‘we’ are the specialists, right? 🙂 LET’S ROCK!

This comes to us by way of our brothers and sisters in OCEANA, who contacted our page and asked us to get this message out.

Recently, the Obama administration decided that if you really wanted to get the President’s attention, you should be able to garner at least 100,000 signatures for your issue. That is our challenge this time folks…

It is a message about such a petition that is streaking toward the needed 100,000 threshold the whales need to keep their ears intact:

With the Atlantic Coast about to get bombarded with seismic air canons that will certainly deafen our best friends under the sea (as well as ruin the ocean-based economy of 7 Atlantic seaboard states), famous TV and movie star *and known ocean warrior* TED DANSEN sends you this message today- we need 100,000 sigs and we have 30 days to gather them. Please please please * sign sign sign * and * share share share!

Here is the original message we got from OCEANA out of Washington DC:

Joey,

I hope all is well. When we chatted a while back you asked if there was a way to help push back against the Atlantic seismic airgun proposal, and now there is, in a big way!

Ted Danson agreed to author a whitehouse.gov petition against seismic testing in the Atlantic:

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/stop-seismic-airgun-testing-oil-and-gas-us-east-coast/khpw6LCt

We need 100,000 signatures in 30 days to get a response from the President! Can you send the petition out to the groups who worked with you against PG & E’s airguns in the Pacific and also post to your groups facebook page, twitter etc.? We are using the twitter hashtag: #seismic.

Our new seismic report, video and other materials available here: http://oceana.org/en/news-media/publications/reports/a-deaf-whale-is-a-dead-whale-seismic-airgun-testing-for-oil-and-gas-threatens-marine-life-and-co (key point of the report is that according to the Department of the Interior, 138,500 whales and dolphins could be injured by the proposed eight years of seismic airgun testing in an area twice the size of California!).

We could really use your help on this. Let us know, thanks!

Best,

OK folks, with lot’s coming up on our agenda (second annual THANK YOU WHALES event in Avila, California, and TOMOL (really awesome Native CHUMASH event, shirts, buttons, some hot issues from Latin American ocean activists, and Navy HSTT SONAR, we ‘gots’ work to do- together. Did I mention Tilikum? Free Tilly!
