I saw this petition on facebook:
SignOn.org - Navy to deafen 15,900 whales and dolphins and kill 1,800 more
It states "Navy to deafen 15,900 whales and dolphins and kill 1,800 more"
It such a horrible thing that my immediate response was emotional - and I was ready to join the fight!!! I decided I would rather find and read the EIS before I submit my comments, which I planned on doing directly through the EIS. So, I searched for the EIS, I could not find it.
The "petition" fails to include a link to the EIS in question, fails to give the EIS's title, doesn't name the command, activity, range, nothing...zilch. It doesn't provide what, exactly, it is that will kill these fellow creatures (e.g., name of device(s)), which would immediately return the right EIS during a search...if such an EIS exists.
All EIS's include a link for public comment, and they almost all allow 90 days for comments. So, why float a separate petition for public comments? If this is bogus...it is disgusting to accuse the Navy of something this heinous. If it is not bogus....there needs to be an investigation of epic proportions.
