Below is my comment on your article of "THE MEDITERRANEAN'S TUNA WARS"
Page 32, TIME, August 21, 2006.

Your article on Tuna wars is a big blow to my belief on the prevailing Japanese fish eating culture on earth because excessive Tuna catching might cause the destruction of the ecosystem.

Many Japanese believe that sushi and sashimi are the national pride of the Japanese traditional food culture not only for its tasty and colorful features but also for its benefits to dieting and health. That is why more and more people all over the world tend to try them. Tuna is the very symbol of that proudful food culture.

To my regret, however, the more people eat sushi and sashimi, the less Tuna could survive in the Med and other oceans. As the inventor and preserver of sushi and sashimi culture, Japan by all means should take the lead to save Tuna by her intelligence and technology.

Below is my comment on the article "HOW TO KILL THE TIGER" of the TIME magazine,Page 24,August 7 - 24, 2006.

The human greed for money is driving Indian tigers into a corner of “ecological extinction”. Even the Indian government can’t stop poachers hunting tigers not only because she doesn’t take it serious but because poor farmers and tribal groups living in the tiger-reserve areas depend on tiger-oriented money.

What is more important and should not be forgotten is that we, human beings, are the part of ecological system as well as those tigers in danger of “ecological extinction”.
