Campaign!

G'day, fellow RationalWikians! Don't forget to visit the Campaign page of the 2016 Board of trustees election in order to make your voice heard. Suggested activities include:

  • Endorsing select candidates (lending a hand to your loyal henchmen and/or glorious overlords!)
  • Anti-endorsing select candidates (character-assassinating your hated opponents!)
  • Providing moar goat (please wipe afterwards)
  • Just asking questions to the candidates

Your participation might help other users better direct their votes. More importantly, it'll show the world that we've yet to go full Citizendium in terms of election hype!

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is an international non-governmental environmentalist organization which is dedicated to combating the menace of whaling. It engages in direct action against whaling. It has its own fleet of ships which conduct raids and engage in frontal combat with whaling ships, and star in their own "reality" television series Whale Wars.[1]

Paul Watson founded Sea Shepherd after leaving Greenpeace in the 1970s, when Greenpeace rejected his preference for confrontational direct action against seal and whalte hunters.[2] He also claims to have had telepathic communication with whales, and wrote a book, Earthforce! An Earth Warrior's Guide to Strategy, on environmental tactics which is full of crank warrior mysticism.
