Two points .
Talk show host saying that the world looks to America as No.1.! I shall comment on that later.
I am horrified that the administration is allowing this travesty to go on.
These sonic tests Looking for filthy,polluting oil will cause the deaths of THOUSANDS of marine mammals.(as related by a very distressed marine biologist. and expert during an interview on BBC.)
It will affect Whales, dolphins,orca,s fish etc etc.,and may have a very bad effect on the fishing industry,although I consider that the least of the problem. Meanwhile CIVILISED European countries are using,Solar power,wind power and wave power,to increase their energy production.
Of course the action to proceed with drilling off the East coast is HEAVILY backed by the oil barons. Greed conquers all!. and who cares re. effects on marine populations. I do and I hope that MANY will add their voices.
As for the USA No. 1. I assume that was a list of the most stupid and greedy countries and one lacking the intellectual ability in science!.Sorry folks but I lose sleep over such issues.

If NMFS gives final approval, researchers will be permitted to disturb 19,497 marine animals, including 34 whale and dolphin species, six of which are endangered! Sadly noted. Ty for the information.
