Episode Summary

EDIT
Imagine being shaken from your daily life by a blast of noise 100,000 time LOUDER than a JET ENGINE. Now imagine that the blasts continue every ten seconds, 24 hours a day -- for weeks on end. This is the life of marine creatures with seismic airgun testing. The Obama administration is considering allowing this on the U.S. Atlantic coast, where the Department of Interior has estimated the disruption and blasts themselves could kill or injure 138,500 marine mammals, as well as turtles and fishery stocks. It is also the first step toward the kind of offshore drilling that brought us the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Join a national sign-on letter to tell the Obama Administration to keep this out of the Atlantic: http://act.oceana.org/letter/l-seismic-signon/?source=youtubemoreless
