"Off the East Coast, there could be 11,267 serious injuries and 1.89 million minor injuries like temporary hearing loss."

NOT just temporary hearing loss. This understates what is going to happen significantly. Permanent loss which will cause the inability to communicate with each other, with their young, many will die and all completely unnecessary. We humans are so unforgivably arrogant. Find other ways to test if you must test, but do not destroy our oceanic ecosphere in doing so. We are a pestilence on this poor planet, it may yet recognize that and cleanse itself of our presence. Until we learn humility we are a danger to every species on the planet, including our own.

We already know there's no "May" about it! All these detonating explosives underwater "exercises" WILL kill or maim dolphins, whales, etc..the Only thing Uncertain is Just HOW MANY!

Our governments and corporations don't care about the environment nor us human beings, nor all the other creatures on our planet.
All they care is MONEY.

I will fight this. The problem with our military is they need to learn compassion for the innocent.

the navy knows its capabilities There is no need for this testing and "war games" I am so appalled by the continued abuse,torture and murder of animals in this country What kind of barbarians are we? What happened to intelligence and compassion? Not to mention the wasted money that can be applied for meaningful purposes
