STOP ARCTIC OCEAN BOMBING

BY Parvati

When I learned that the Canadian government has given clearance for oil companies to bomb the seabed of the Arctic Ocean, I felt profoundly shaken in the depth of my being. I could sense the Great Blue Whale totem animal, that drew me on my North Pole journey and that guided the powerful healing that followed, echoing all through me with a resounding NO! I knew immediately that the sonic effect of these blasts would kill the magnificent whales and sea creatures.
Before the oceans were permeated with ship traffic noise, the sounds emitted by whales were heard as far as four thousand miles away. On a particularly quiet day, tones would only have become inaudible after thirteen thousand miles – more than the diameter of the Earth.

We cannot even begin to understand the subtlety of such communication – nor the harm we do on a day to day basis through travel, shipping, ocean exploitations, the boom of jet planes, the emission of wifi. And now it is ok to bomb the ocean bed? What living being could sustain such sonic blasts – let alone beings that communicate via sonar?
In response, I have initiated a movement and reached out to friends who share the concern to start a not-for-profit organization and activate a campaign to ensure that these bombings never occur and that the ocean and its inhabitants are protected.
We will be joining efforts with existing organizations and campaigns. If you have not yet signed the petition on SumofUs.org please do so:http://action.sumofus.org/a/clyde-river-big-oil/3/11/?sub=fb
As we form our not-for-profit, we need assistance in the form of research into the mid sized commercial companies that are tied to the mega global corporations that are invested in profiting from this exploitation of the Arctic seabed.
