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

By Lyndia Storey (Contact)

To be delivered to: U.S. Navy EIS Comments

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.

The Navy is required to include comments on their Environmental Impact Statement (EI re: the use of high frequency underwater sound for testing in Hawaii, the California and Atlantic Coasts, and the Gulf of Mexico. According to their estimates it will deafen more than 15,900 whales and dolphins and kill 1,800 more over the next 5 years. Whales and dolphins depend on sound to navigate and live. Your signature and comment will have to be included in the EIS and could stop this Naval program, potentially saving the lives of these ocean creatures. The comments must be in by July 10, 2012.

NEW goal - We need 400,000 signatures
There are currently 395,387 signatures

Recent discoveries in the Mexican Gulf Coast remind us once again just how dangerous offshore drilling is. Fishermen and scientists are seeing a rise in mutant aquatic wildlife, such as eyeless shrimp, claw-less crabs, and gill-damaged fish.

The Justice Department went big game hunting and bagged a teeny-weeny scapegoat. More like a scape-kid, really. Today, Justice arrested former BP engineer Kurt Mix for destroying evidence in the Deepwater Horizon blow-out.

Keystone Gulf Expansion Threatens Farm Welfare


On March 8, 2012, the amendment associated with the transportation bill to expand the Keystone Pipeline died on the Senate floor. One would think that was the end of the issue. Though the amendment did not pass, TransCanada intends to expand the pipeline throughout Oklahoma and Texas. The scheme is known as the Keystone Gulf Coast Expansion and was green-lighted courtesy of the National Energy Board (NEB) of Canada.

The expansion intends to run extended pipeline from Cushing, Oklahoma to Port Arthur, Texas to gain access to the Gulf Coast for export distribution to China. Additionally, the oil corporation continues with eminent domain lawsuits throughout the originally intended route of the pipeline without permits. This means that the foreign owned company is being allowed to sue American landowners for the right to confiscate properties for a scheme that has not met with Presidential approval and does not service the needs of the American public.

TransCanada has made it clear that the Keystone XL is intended to bring oil to the Gulf Coast for export to China. The appearance of these eminent domain lawsuits gives the express impression that the United States Federal Government finds more value in supporting the initiatives of other countries over their own by allowing foreign entities to force farmers to release their lands. In addition to endangering animal and human lives with oil spills and toxic sprays these farmers are expected to live with the consequences of dramatic decreases in property value. Without the threat of eminent domain, TransCanada would be hard pressed to afford the farmland. The company would have to reach a purchase agreement with every landowner for a fair purchase value, making this expansion a pipe dream.
