So, The Guardian tells us about the White House agreeing to crush the US stocks of confiscated ivory:
White House to crush 6m tons of seized ivory
Six million tonnes? That’s a lot of ivory there.
The Obama administration said on Monday it would destroy all 6m tons of its stocks of seized ivory
They really do mean 6 million tonnes. That’s an awful lot of elephants.
The Philippines crushed 15m tons of seized ivory beneath industrial rollers earlier this year.
No, they really do think that ivory comes in the millions of tonnes.
Although it doesn’t you know:
Six tons of confiscated elephant tusks to be crushed
Well done to the arts graduates at The G. Only out by a factor of one million this time.
