Are Sonic Booms Decimating The Ocean’s Wildlife Populations?

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Are miliary sonic booms killing sea life in the ocean ? Recent beaching of deep water sea life calls into question these pracctices.

===================================

They use sound to navigate and to find other creatures in the deep ocean waters … vessels and the U.S. Military. According to Paul Ferris, campaign director for Sum Of Us, these companies have been “ceaselessly firing sonic booms to map the seafloor.

===================================
This is what a sonic boom does on land-
====================================
OCEAN CITY — A loud boom on Monday, followed by windows rattling and homes and businesses shaking, was due to a sonic boom related to military jets in a testing track off the coast. Many residents and visitors reported the incident shortly after noon …

The Dispatch · 4/17/2014
===============================
One can only imagine what it is like for sound dependent underwater animals to be bombarded with these explosions.  It is time to stop using this technique.
Our oceans and the creatures that live there are more vital to our existence than mapping the sea floor.
I am sure if we can put a man on the moon we can figure out a non-intrusive way to map the ocean floor.

So I Sat…..

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

So I sat in my garden with today’s NY times as I had done just before the Iraq war started but this time the headlines read  —

SENATE PANEL FAULTS CIA OVER BRUTALITY AND DECEIT IN TERRORISM INTERROGATIONS –
REPORT REJECTS CLAIM ON HUNT FOR BIN LADEN –
FAILURE OF OVERSIGHT IS OUTLINED, AGENCY DEFENDS PROGRAM –
PORTRAYING A BROKEN -AGENCY DEVOTED TO A FAILED POLICY –
AT BIRTHPLACE OF FREE SPEECH MOVEMENT, A PROTEST TORCH IS PASSED

Finally finally…..  I smiled as I looked into the sky I heard –

My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing, land where my father died….. from every mountainside let freedom ring.

We are watching the system of US democracy in action – checks and balances….

Thank you, Senator Diane Feinstein.

Was Gaza Gassed?

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog”

Reports of a white poisinous gas beung fired at civilians in Gaza that causes symptoms of suffocation in people who are sprayed with it are very disturbing.

The questions are,

Who produced this new gas?

Who sold it to the Israelis?

and isn’t using gas against civilans not allowed by international law?

The United Nations should look into this matter as soon as possible.

Dozens of Palestinians, including children, suffered from suffocation on Thursday due to inhaling what is being described as a “strange toxic gas” launched by the Israeli army during its ground incursion in the north and south of the Gaza Strip, Anadolu news agency reported.

Anadolu quoted Dr. Ashraf Al-Qidra, a spokesperson for the Health Ministry in Gaza, as saying that: “Dozens of Palestinians, including children, arrived at hospitals suffering from suffocation after inhaling a white poisonous gas fired by the Israeli army in the northern Gaza Strip and in the Shawkah neighbourhood near Rafah, to the south.”

Al-Qidra urged the Palestinians in Gaza “not to panic when they inhale the strange gas, to protect themselves using tarpaulin coats or nylon clothes and to cover the doors, windows and vents with a moist cloth to prevent air from leaking inside.”

Solar Power, Prizes, Clean Water And Billionaires

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Clean power and clean water are two of the biggest problems that the world faces with the population  expanding over the earth.

If we were able to put a man on the moon, then we collectively can surely figure out a way to produce both innovations.  Since all the $ is at the top (recently created billionaires ) they as a group or individually, can offer monetary prizes to any individual that invents a way to-

process undrinkable water so it is clean

or make solar power a more consistent and inexpensive product.

Now, how can they do this without losing money but, as an added plus,  gain prestige?

Simple as pie!  Take say 1 million out of your multi millions and invest it in a stock that gives a good return – such as a utility, something that will always be needed and used by the public making the company stable longterm,

then take the interest from that 1 million and give it away in prize competitions !

The multi- millionaire retains his principal, his/her personal money invested, and inventors across the globe get a chance for moolah and the notariety of helping the world to become be a better place!

So this is a call out to all you billionaires!! Have some fun and plant some prizes out there and see how they grow into wonderful inventions that will put smiles on the faces of people across the globe.

Look Back

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

Looking back

you have to look back

to learn

looking back

over the Obama stimulus

guess what? it worked,

looking back ,

over 8 years of Clinton prosperity

then the Banking mess the republicans left

“I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry…..” Prez. C. says

Why did the prosperity end? Trickle down republican policies?

looking back over the Iraq and Afgahnistan wars

Suicide rates up 80 percent for returning soldiers

Too many tours- too much money spent on weapons- not enough on soldiers

we must look back

see the mistakes made

look back and learn.

The study, an analysis of data from the Army Behavioral Health Integrated Data Environment, shows a striking 80 percent increase in suicides among Army personnel between 2004 and 2008. The rise parallels increasing rates of depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions in soldiers, the study said.

The high number of suicides are “unprecedented in over 30 years of U.S. Army records,” according to the authors of the study, which was published Wednesday in the journal Injury Prevention. Based on the data and the timing of the increase in suicide rates, the authors calculated that about 40 percent of the Army’s suicides in 2008 could be associated with the U.S. military escalation in Iraq.

“This study does not show that U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan cause suicide,” said Dr. Michelle Chervak, one of the study’s authors, a senior epidemiologist at the U.S. Army Public Health Command. “This study does suggest that an Army engaged in prolonged combat operations is a population under stress, and that mental health conditions and suicide can be expected to increase under these circumstances.”
