Seismic Blasts for Oil Threaten Whales & Dolphins on East Coast

These  suuperloud seismic airgun blasting for  oil could injure 138,000 whales and dolphins  from Delaware to Florida.  The blasts go off every 10 seconds 24 hours a day.   They threaten the endangered right whale.  I first became entranced with whales when I heard that a group of  false  pilot whales had beached themselves near Vero Beach, FL.  My sisters and I drove there from our nearby grandparents, and we pushed them out as incoming wave slifted them up.   Superloud navy sonar and oil exploration seismic blasts have been suggested as the cause of many whale beachings.  The blasts can cause hearing loss in the whales.   Link  Link
