This is sickening but I also understand that they have a different culture. Many countries still hunt whales even though its illegal in many other countries. It's all about the culture.

I understand that you're trying to be understanding but this is why I have become hostile to relavatism. Just because other cultures have a belief doesn't mean we are bound to respect said belief. If I come from a culture that says I have to hunt you, do you have to respect me shooting at you? What if I yell that I'm being oppressed?
I used to be much more friendly to this concept, but not any longer and it is stuff like this key chain that is a good example why. The fact is that either approach projects your own culture onto someone else, so why not simply follow what you believe to be right? In this case this is simply not right to do if only because this is unsustainable and wasteful (forget the inhumanity for a moment).
Actually, isn't it algae that generates most of the oxygen for our planet?
I'm not certain, but I think that the rainforests produce a majority of all LAND based oxygen and the algae produces a majority of the WATER/SEA/OCEAN based oxygen. I think the algae, overall, is thought to produce a plurality of our planetary oxygen.
Like I said, I might have remembered this wrong, but I've quoted it wrong in the past, as have others, and decided to look it up at some point and realized that it's a bit more complex that most people realize. Man, if I had a dollar for every time I've had realization in my life.....
