John Steiner: 9 July Deadline US Navy to deafen 15,900 whales and dolphins and kill 1,800 more

Navy to deafen 15,900 whales and dolphins and kill 1,800 more

Phi Beta Iota:  This is most important as a documented form of “true cost” that is now emergent in the public understanding.  From depleted uranium to HAARP to forced population reduction to high-frequency sound in the ocean, “true costs” make the US military vastly more toxic and more expensive than their current 50% “tax” on the US entire economy and their hidden taxes and depredation on the rest of the world.  Petition signature recommended.

Hi MoveOn member,

Shocking fact: The U.S. Navy estimates that it will kill 1,800 whales and deafen 15,900 more over the next five years through the use of
high-frequency underwater sound for testing.

Amazing story: When I found out that Navy was accepting public comments on this program through July 10, I started a petition on SignOn.org right away. And in just a few days, over 200,000 people signed.

What’s next? You can sign the petition too, before the July 10 deadline, to keep our impact growing. The petition says:

Stop the killing of 1,800 whales and dolphins and the deafening of 15,900 more by ceasing the operation of the Navy’s underwater sound system in the Hawaiian Islands, the California and Atlantic Coasts, and the Gulf of Mexico.

P.S. My original email with more details is below:


According to the U.S. Navy’s own estimates, the use of high-frequency underwater sound for testing will deafen 15,900 whales and dolphins and kill 1,800 more over the next five years.  Whales and dolphins depend on sound to navigate and live. The Navy is
required to include comments from the public on their Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), so your signature and comment on my SignOn.org petition could help stop this naval program and save the lives of these ocean creatures.

My petition says:

Stop the killing of 1,800 whales and dolphins and the deafening of 15,900 more by ceasing the operation of the Navy’s underwater sound system in the Hawaiian Islands, the California and Atlantic Coasts, and the Gulf of Mexico.
