Please spread the word!

I rarely venture into politics here, but this is really making me crazy.  Please sign this petition if you are as horrified as I am and share with everyone.  It will be delivered on Tuesday, the 10th.  This is insanity.  

Navy to deafen 15,900 whales and dolphins and kill 1,800 more

By Lyndia Storey (Contact)
To be delivered to: U.S. Navy EIS Comments
Stop the killing of 1,800 whales and dolphins and the deafening of 15,900 more by ceasing the operation of the Navy's underwater sound system in the Hawaiian Islands, the California and Atlantic Coasts, and the Gulf of Mexico.
The Navy is required to include comments on their Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) re: the use of high frequency underwater sound for testing in Hawaii, the California and Atlantic Coasts, and the Gulf of Mexico. According to their estimates it will deafen more than 15,900 whales and dolphins and kill 1,800 more over the next 5 years. Whales and dolphins depend on sound to navigate and live. Your signature and comment will have to be included in the EIS and could stop this Naval program, potentially saving the lives of these ocean creatures. The comments must be in by July 10, 2012.
NEW goal - We need 375,000 signatures
There are currently 359,797 signatures  
with deep gratitude and heartfelt blessings .......
