US Navy Bombarding Our Oceans, Land, and Atmosphere

Listen to US Navy Bombarding Our Oceans, Land, and Atmosphere

Over the next 5 years the United States Navy plans to increase the number of its military exercises or expand the areas in which they may occur, and virtually every US coastal state will be affected.
Some of these exercises may occur in the nation's most biologically sensitive marine habitats, including National Marine Sanctuaries and breeding habitat for the endangered North Atlantic right whale. The Navy anticipates more than 2.3 million takes per year or 11.7 million over 5 years. A "take" is a significant disruption in marine mammal foraging, breeding, and other essential behaviors.
Rosaline Peterson, California President and Co-Founder of the Agriculture Defense Coalition (ADC) talks about the impact of these tests.
