One more reason to put more money, minds and muscle behind bio-fuels.

We might not know what's the number one cause, but we do know for sure is that man kind is behind all this.

Some day we will have to pay a deep price for all we do to this earth in the name of wealth and progress. God help us.

Enough of the proven unsafe techniques. If the drillers can't guarantee the safety of their techniques, no drilling.

Freya is right. Second generation biofuels are far less expensive and do not compete with the dinner table.

There are many factors as to why this is happening, and oil exploration is certainly one of them. Either way, it is pretty scary/sad that wildlife is dying in threat of dying, or in threat of extinction. I might add to this earlier all in some way shape or form ties to human activity.

The only thing that humans know what to do is destroy the planet and everything in it!!

I agree with Sarah L. Eventually scientists will figure out what killed these dolphins, but the results will most likely be from something humans did. We can't deny what we do to our planet much longer. There is too much evidence indicating where mankind has poisoned and polluted the air, land, and water, including the ocean, with toxic chemicals, plastic, noise, and destruction of habitat. Sadly, there are those who think money is more important than having a healthy planet.

No doubt for cause. The scientists will argue it out.
