this makes me crazy!!

i know i am a carnivore, and eating fish and whatever else that lives in the ocean has some negative effect on the whales and the whole ecosystem of the ocean... but this wire in the ny times seems worse, doesn't it?

When I first learned that the sonar from naval/military/whatever ships might be a cause for the massive beached whales... i got that crazy sinking feeling in my stomach...

please, no more suffering for the poor whales!!!

Critics say active sonar, which sailors use by pumping sound through water and listening for objects the sound bounces off of, can strand and even kill marine mammals. A U.S. Congressional Research Service report last year found Navy sonar exercises had been responsible for at least six mass deaths and unusual behavior among whales. Many of the beached or dead animals had damaged hearing organs.

I think today is a good day for me to 'adopt a whale'.... please join me!
