A whale of a story…

Environmentalists are trying to ban the Navy from using sonar because it’s – get this – causing whales to die from the bends. There is no connection between the crucial tool of many naval vessels and whale death, but that didn’t stop environmental groups from protesting tests (which are costing the taxpayers $9 million) done in response to their claims.
While there is evidence that certain rare types of sonar harm marine life in close proximity, it is absolutely ridiculous to demand that our military give up a key part of our national defense for a few whales, and then protest tests done to verify those claims. This is just one example of how enviro-whackos don’t care for the facts, humans, or even whales, but merely want to destroy civilization – by wiping out the technology that makes it possible.
