Good to know..I wonder where the whale oil tale originated?
Charles A. Richardson wrote:
Regarding the EPA, Whale oil, etc. In 1970 the EPA was created by
Congress. In 1972 the Marine Mammal Protection Act banned hunting of
whales and this was supplemented in 1982 when the UN also passed an
international whale hunting ban as whales were in danger of extinction.
Whale oil is a good mechanical lubricant and is used in oiling precision
mechanisms such as watches and clocks, but it was never used as a binder
lubricant in tape manufacture.
