The whales can feel a pilau vibe from the so called leaders. No can get a tan. Although We did yesterday.
To be “woke” to the multitude of insults humanity has waged against marine life needs no battery of researchers. Just look around. Plastics choking all life out of the ocean. Military weaponry manufactured by the U.S. and sold to nearly every coastal Asian country so they get to practice their own version of RIMPAC with cerebellum-numbing sonar year-round. The watery world for marine mammals is like living in an heavy-metal concert that never stops, even for the babies. Not to mention the undersea mining with its horrific blasts. For whales and dolphins, the ears are the way they “see.” With their world now full of plastic and noise violence, they can’t guide their young, figure out where to feed, or do anything they need to survive. Just today, nearly 150 pilot whales beached themselves in New Zealand. Last week, a whale full of plastic cups beached itself. The list of whale/dolphin suicides go on and on and on. And now, the navy is proposing expanding its death games throughout the Hawaiian Islands, and has determined there will be “no significant impact.” Deadline to submit comments is December 10. Even though it’s like signing the Ku’e petition, or writing a letter of opposition to genocide during the Third Reich, it is the pono thing to do. At least we can go to our grave knowing we stood up for what was right.
Navy sonar is killing them. War training is just gonna make it worse. Have the military go away and the whales will come back!
Let’s not forget to submit our comments on military training degrading our land and sea.
Volcanic and seismic activity. Maybe.
