It's not often that a government delay is cause for celebration, but this time the oceans caught a break. After campaigning by Oceana and our allies, the Department of the Interior decided to postpone their decision on whether to allow seismic airgun use

Where this might be a useful tool, it would be totally unethical to use in this particular environment. They must begin thinking more about the unintended consequences of their research BEFORE doing the damage.

Good news, but I'll do my happy dance when it's called off completely.

Because who are behind it? "The oil and gas industry uses seismic airguns to find deposits beneath the ocean floor." Yes, them. And we all know they're not going to give up that easily. They're probably going to pressure (a synonym for bribe') the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to leave their outdated standards for the level of noise that is harmful to sea life at an outdated level.

I will also rejoice when it is definite that there will be no seismic testing. I did a demonstration with them and we had horns to simulate the sounds of what it would sound like underwater and I'm sure it is even worse for the animals. I wish the oil and gas industry people would just drown in their own wells and fracking sites.They are greedy and selfish and I have no use for them on this planet.
