Greenhouse Gases Make the Ocean Too Noisy
Still not afraid of harmless “greenhouse gases”? Let’s try this:
Greenhouse gases worsen ocean noise by raising acidity levels and causing sound to travel farther, making it ever harder for marine mammals to communicate, UN and wildlife experts said today.
Other bad things that force whales to raise their voices include “shipping, oil and gas exploration, and military sonars.” A lawyer for the whales bleats that their capacity to communicate has been reduced by 90%.
No doubt the UN will propose international regulations to put a stop to activities that make the ocean noisy.
