Today's big number: 340

This depressed me when I read it.... (link here)

So the Navy has to apply for environmental permits now, and in doing so, state how many cetaceans they anticipate their going to kill or harm.  340.  That's how many dolphins and whales the US Navy predicts it will kill from 2014 to 2019 in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Gulf of Mexico, during training exercises with bombs and by testing sonar...  Awesome.

At least now, the Navy is finally admitting that active sonar harms cetaceans.
