Environmentalists , not whales, sue Navy.

Sometimes I hate environmentalists because they can be a little odd. Seems that some environmentalists have sued the US Navy on behalf of the whale population because "a widely used form of sonar for detecting enemy submarines disturbs and sometimes kills whales and dolphins."

"The sonar "is capable of flooding thousands of square miles of ocean with dangerous levels of noise pollution," according to the lawsuit filed in federal court in Los Angeles."
