This must stop! U.S. Navy wargames to kill hundreds of whales, dolphins

Thank you Lada! This is so horrible. I hope everyone will sign and share this widely.

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.

As usual, US Army/Navy turn the blind eye and deaf ear on the carnage their wargames leave behind!

Thank you, Maddie of 1EarthUnited Blog, for the petition links to stop this outrage!
