Creating Waves of Awareness
Recently, I have been writing about feeling overwhelmed and also taking action on my FaceBook page. Perhaps others also feel like we're asked to take too many actions, especially on all these petition pages on Care2, etc. All of these messages vie for our attention and we wonder whether we have any personal quiet space or can just read something for pure pleasure? Does everything have to end in a 'click?' I don't think I have an answer for everyone out there. Personally, I also feel overwhelmed with trying to save all that's wrong with our world. I wonder why people in charge of really big decisions can be so unethical, inhumane and despicable. Yeah. I'm not too happy with some of the things done in the name of progress. Take a look at the latest insanity below. Sorry, it's another petition. Then listen to the whales songs.
My friend posted this one on FaceBook. I can't believe I'm signing another petition and now sharing with others. In fact, I actually registered on this petition website!
So, this is a no-brainer. Why the heck would they blast the oceans with decibel levels to incapacitate and kill these precious mammals? Who makes up these things? Have they no compassion or thought behind their actions?
Subject: Navy to deafen 11,200 whales and dolphins and kill 1,600 more
The Navy is required to include comments on their Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) re: the use of high frequency underwater sound for testing in Hawaii and off the coast of California. According to their estimates it will deafen 11,200 whales and dolphins and kill 1,600 more over the next 7 years. Whales and dolphins depend on sound to navigate and live. Your signature and comment will have to be included in the EIS and could stop this Naval program, potentially saving the lives of these ocean creatures. The comments must be in by July 10, 2012.
That's why I signed a petition to U.S. Navy EIS Comments, which says:
"Stop the killing of 1,600 whales and dolphins and the deafening of 11,200 more by ceasing the operation of the Navy's underwater sound system in the Hawaiian Islands and California coastline."

Boy playing with orca whale. They are intelligent animals.
Can you imagine if your means of communication with the world, others of your species was completely composed of music, melodies and signals? What if your sense of hearing was lost and your ability to speak cut off? What if, like bats, you needed your radar or sonar to prevent you from bumping into walls?
Some scientists tried to understand the language of these oceanic animals.

This most beautiful scene requires your patience as the communication unfolds.
I'm adding one little piece of news about how the human race dumps their waste into the ocean which ends up killing whales. There are a number of petitions out their to stop the use of production of plastic bags. One outcome is the destruction of whales.
