This is interesting. The photonic disruptors on the sunk anti-whaling vessel, the Andy Gil, discussed previously here, sent out a green beam.  These disruptors are meant to cause temporary blindness.

Here’s a screenshot from a video put up by the Institute of Cetacean Research (aka the Japanese whaling fleet), which links to the video.

Photonic Disruptors Aboard the Anti-Whaling Vessel, In Action

It seems ironic that these beams are green. Are these devices cool? I mean, they’re for military use, as I understand it, possibly crossing the line from passive resistance to using weaponry.
