Tom Coburn Stops Shark Finning

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica}

Just one man is blocking the total ban on shark finning in American waters: Senator Tom Coburn. The senator from Oklahoma decided to block progress of the bill, due to concerns that it will cost too much money and is a "special interest" concern. He is also blocking four other bills, intended to protect cranes, great cats and wild canines, sea otters and other marine mammals. Dr. Coburn evidently knows nothing about the oceans, otherwise he would understand that protecting the oceans will save billions of dollars. Healthy oceans are not a luxury, as Coburn seems to believe, they are a necessity - for all of us.

It seems Senator Coburn is content for American oceans to be stripped of sharks so that their fins can be used to pamper the palates of the Chinese middle class.
