Whales, Dolphins and Ocean Noise

Whales, Dolphins and Ocean Noise

Wildlife
In the wake of multiple mass strandings of varied species of whales, the link between naval exercises and these events has become a very controversial topic. And there are other sources of noise that are also affecting marine mammals. Boats, Oil and Gas Exploration, and Industry Engine noise from large ships and even recreational boats causes dolphins and whales to alter their behaviour. Oil and gas exploration, construction, power plants and factories all contribute to the problem. Whales and dolphins exist in a world of underwater sound. Most people are familiar with the clicks and whistles of dolphins and the eerie sounds of humpback whale songs.

Varicose Vein Treatment: Are Your Compression Stockings Itchy?

Why Deep Water Drilling May Lead To Massive Disaster

General
Deep water drilling is not the answer to our energy conundrum and neither is nuclear. The Gulf oil disaster will be huge in the future as earlier the US congress allowed oil drillers to make their own rules and trusted them. There are now more than 20,000 deep oil wells that were capped off with no standards, and they are starting to leak oil. Running a deep oil rig like RIG or Diamond offshore with helicopter pads and a small city of workers cost over a million a day rental. So they can only extract less than 40 percent of the oil because the rest costs more than one million a day. This is the reason they leave 60 percent under pressure that we cannot imagine. Just think about 1 mile of water plus 1.5 miles of land under the water pressing down on the oil well that is 2.5...
