For decades, the US Navy, by its own admission, has been conducting war game exercises in US waters using bombs, missiles, sonobuoys (sonar buoys), high explosives, bullets and other materials that contain toxic chemicals — including lead and mercury — that are harmful to both humans and wildlife.T
he Navy’s 2015 Northwest Training and Testing environmental impact statement (EIS) states that in the thousands of warfare “testing and training events” it conducts each year, 200,000 “stressors” from the use of missiles, torpedoes, guns and other explosive firings in US waters happen biennially.
And year after year we sign petitions to stop these tests for reasons associated to the sound pollution effects on Whales and Dolphins….
Are the tests worth it?
It’s all part of the grand USA Military Industrial Complex.
