"Navy Sonar System Threatens Whales<br><br>
The U.S. Navy wants to flood the world's oceans and coastal waters with sonar technology that deafens -- and kills -- whales and other marine mammals.<br><br><br><br>
Around the globe, nations are testing and beginning to deploy "active sonar" technology, which uses extremely loud sound to detect submarines. The problem? Active sonar can injure and even kill marine mammals. It has been conclusively linked to the deaths of seven whales in the Bahamas in March 2000; that stranding is only one of a mounting number of similar events.<br><br>
The U.S. Navy has led the push toward use of active sonar. In full knowledge of the disastrous effects that active sonar's intense noise may have on whale populations all over the world, the Navy has also conducted testing in complete secrecy and has consistently evaded and violated environmental law."<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.nrdc.org/wildlife/marine/nlfa.asp" target="_blank">http://www.nrdc.org/wildlife/marine/nlfa.asp</a><br><br><br><br>
