One thought on “Debate over Navy sonar can be uncomfortable, but worthwhile

  1. Though almost no one will admit it, the Marine Mammal Act has done and is still doing a whole lot of harm to Puget Sound. With the proliferation of marine mammals after the Act went into effect has come the downward slide of salmon runs and of commercial and recreational fishing, and a whole lot of pollution as well. Marine mammals create a lot of waste but no one will tell, if it has even been studied, how much e-coli is caused by them as compared to that created by human and animal runoff.
    Salmon fishing used to be a matter of casting a line into the water and getting a strike after a short wait. Now a strike, if a fisherman is lucky enough to get one, yields a salmon already half-eaten by a waiting seal.
    But this damage to the environment isn’t enough. Now our national defense is being hampered by environmental restrictions and proposed restrictions on Naval training and maneuvers in the Straits of Juan de Fuca.
    The Navy should be able to do whatever it needs to do to defend us without being hampered by these restrictions. National defense must come first.
