Join me for another segment of SOS as I describe how the Australian federal government has once again handed over the car keys to Big Oil to seismically loot the Tasman Sea.

That means millions of sea creatures will be killed by incessant sonic booms as Big Oil scavenges for more heat-trapping gases.
This deranged ecocide risks killing the critically endangered Leatherback turtles, Great White sharks and the largest animals on the planet -- exalted blue whales.

Every 10 seconds non-stop for five weeks, sonic explosions at 252 decibels will shatter eardrums of all sea creatures.
In 2008, ExxonMobil Exploration and its partner used sonic cannons whilst fossicking for gas offshore northwest Madagascar. They caused 100 melon-headed whales to mass strand. Those hideous sonic booms shattered their eardrums. Photo credit: scienceworldreport.com

The oceans provide us with three out of every four breaths of air and the most powerful pain, cancer and heart medicines ever discovered.
