The Navy is coming to discuss the EIS for the Hawaii-California region that basically covers everything in the Eastern Pacific ocean north of the equator. THEY ARE PROPOSING A REAL INCREASE TO THEIR ACTIVITIES, ESPECIALLY WAR GAMES AND SONAR.

SONAR TORTURES AND KILLS whales and dolphins. Please come to these meetings and be a voice for Cetaceans (whales and dolphins) and help protect them and all marine life. You can also send comments via the link below.
The public meetings will be held between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on the following dates and locations:

1. KAUAI - June 12, 2012 (Tuesday) at the
Wilcox Elementary School Cafeteria,
4319 Hardy Street, Lihue, HI.  

[IB Publisher's note: We have been informed by Kip Goodwin (kgoodwin@hawaiiantel.net) that on on the day representatives of the Navy will appear in public to promote their Expansion Plan for war preparation exercises in the eastern Pacific a demonstration is planned. While the topic is an EIS addressing potential harm to marine mammals, many see an opportunity to address the exercises in a greater perspective: 

Who are the real winners and losers in US military power projection in the Pacific basin? A demonstration with signs will begin at 4:15pm, prior to the 5pm event start, and the attached flyer will be handed out. Anyone who wishes can bring a sign and participate. We will be in front of the meeting venue at Wilcox Elementary, across the street from Lihue Library.]

With all that is being done to the Pacific Ocean right now i.e. the dumping of radioactive water from Fukushima, ALL of the sea life is at high risk. We need to be focusing on solutions rather than endless ways to spend precious human intelligence and resources making and/or testing weapons! There is no enemy except ourselves.
Bless us all,

Mother Nature tries to find a balance. Yet man, with their so called infinite wisdom cannot see the destruction they create. Someday our eyes will listen. Mahalo
