China and the United States are involved in a trade war. The conflict, initiated by President of the United States Donald Trump, has been characterized by increasing tariffs and other trade barriers with the goal of forcing China to make changes to what the U.S. says are “unfair trade practices”. Among the trade practices and their effects which the U.S. claims are unfair are the growing trade deficit, the theft of intellectual property, and the forced transfer of American technology to China. Those and other rationales for the tariffs, were explained in a government report published in March 2018.

event. To capture it Hans Peter Roth, along with a German filmmaker, accessed the Cove after dark and plant hidden cameras to capture the slaughter process. The fisherman get on their boats and begin. Before the documentary ‘The Cove’ came out they used to stab the dolphin’s with sharp fishermen’s hooks and haul the still alive dolphins onto their boats, while they begin to bleed to death. The slaughter turned the cove red with their blood. Now, the fisherman push a sharp metal spike into the dolphin’s necks just behind the blowholes, which is supposed to sever the spinal cord and produce an instant death. In fact, film footage from the hidden cameras planted by Hans Peter Roth show the dolphins suffering for up to 20 minutes. The fishermen then push “dowel-like wooden corks” (dolphinproject.net) into the wounds to prevent blood from spilling out into the waters of the cove. “It’s the captivity industry that keeps this slaughter going by rewarding the fisherman for their bad behavior. They only get $600 dollars for a dead dolphin, but they get more than $150,000, for a live show dolphin” said Ric O’Barry, the creator of the dolphin project, in The Cove. Big marine parks like SeaWorld make millions of dollars off of the captivity of animals. They bring in millions of people to educate them about marine life and for entertainment. It has created a desire for people to swim with them because they are so friendly and seem so happy all of the time. But as Ric O’Barry said “a dolphin’s smile is nature’s greatest deception.” The Japanese fisherman argue that they kill the dolphin’s because it’s tradition, it’s their culture bit in reality very few people in Japan actually eat it. Dolphin meat is less valuable than whale meat, so some dolphin meats are labeled as expensive whale meat for more profit. A consumer may think they are buying healthy whale meat from the southern hemisphere, but they might be getting a bottlenose dolphin from the coast of Taiji, Japan with high levels of mercury. This leads many to believe that this whole slaughter is just about money. Members in the documentary ‘The Cove’, asked the fisherman if they were to pay them the same amount of money they would normally make killing dolphins in Taiji, they would then stop and they responded “It’s not about money. It’s about pest control.” They are being told by the Japanese government that the dolphins are consuming too many fish in the ocean. The fisheries of the world are declining, and the main culprit are people. Humans are harvesting fish out of the ocean at such a high rate, and destroying the marine ecosystems, that the whole system could fail. Dolphins are simply not the problem, humans are. Tha>GET ANSWER
