These military exercises are totally unacceptable, their callous disregard for nature and marine wildlife is atrocious. I am voicing my concerns to congress via petitions:
Fukushima has already poisoned the Pacific, must we kill off the rest with sonar and harmful military operations?
Outrageous! This must stop!
The Natural Resources Defense Council is suing the US government for allowing the Navy to train off the California coast, imperiling vast amounts of marine life. High intensity sonar used by ships and submarines frequently result in the deaths of dolphins, whales, and many endangered animals, yet the armed forces have been granted vast authority in how they train.
Many dolphins and whales get beached with painfully burst auditory canals! Disruptions of behavior, disorientation, abandoning of feeding of their young and death are also the result!
As usual, US Army/Navy turn the blind eye and deaf ear on the carnage their wargames leave behind!
