It's not different from ours, we used to do the same stupid shit and then wised up.
At least in the Moby Dick era the whales could occasionally pwn some sailors.
It's easy to laugh it off because "save the whales" is a cliche for wooly-headed environmentalism, but sometimes, environmentalists do have a point. And not killing what might be the only other sentient life-form on earth is a pretty good one.
I can't believe I came out of SF semi-retirement to argue about fucking whales.
