This Article is printed in the September 2011 edition of the Adventist Messenger . It started when word got out that the Japanese government was planning a huge science experiment that involved killing 50 humpback whales in the Southern Ocean, studying them and then selling their meat. When Greenpeace heard about this, they were irate and decided to hold a poll to name a specific humpback whale and raise awareness of this predicament. Social media giants such as Digg , Reddit and Facebook got hold of this story and started promoting it on their websites, which literally spread the news from one end of the globe to the other. In turn traditional news agencies started airing the story on local TV stations worldwide. People responded to the Greenpeace name poll, and after receiving over 150,000 responses, the name “Mister Splashy Pants” was the winner.
