The Navy may well be correct in their assertion:” “”The Navy said
the exercise was probably too far away to have harmed the whales.””
Given the numbers of animal death anomalies from coast to coast here
in the usa as well as reported in various parts of Europe, I’d put
my money on Weather Modification aka chemtrails as the culprit.
Navy again sued over sonar and whales
Activists allege marine mammals hurt by mid-frequency sound waves
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Environmentalists sued the Navy on Wednesday,
claiming that a widely used form of sonar for detecting enemy
submarines disturbs and sometimes kills whales and dolphins.
The sonar “is capable of flooding thousands of square miles of ocean
with dangerous levels of noise pollution,” according to the lawsuit
filed in federal court in Los Angeles.
The Navy settled a similar lawsuit two years ago by agreeing to
limit the peacetime use of experimental low-frequency sonar.
The new lawsuit, by the Natural Resources Defense Council and other
plaintiffs, seeks a court order to curb mid-frequency sonar, the
most common method of detecting enemy submarines.
NRDC spokesman Daniel Hinerfeld said the plaintiffs recognize the
Navy’s need to detect enemies, but “there are all sorts of simple
practices you can take to minimize the impact of sonar on whales and
other marine life.”
The environmentalists want the Navy to use harmless passive sonar —
listening for sounds made by marine mammals themselves — to locate
the animals before using mid-frequency sonar. They also want the
Navy to avoid migration and calving areas and to turn on sonar
systems gradually so that the animals have time to flee.
Navy spokesman Lt. William Marks said the Navy already is doing many
of the things demanded in the suit.
The lawsuit blames the Navy for the January stranding and deaths of
at least 37 whales on North Carolina’s Outer Banks after a mid-
frequency sonar exercise. The Navy said the exercise was probably
too far away to have harmed the whales.
