“This is a Holocaust on our oceans, 11.7 million marine mammals lives are at stake” ~Rosalind Peterson
“US NAVY goes to war on the oceans of our world & conducts a massacre in the name of war practice” ~Rosalind Peterson
“This is all live fire, this is not practice” ~R. Peterson
“This information is provided in order to protect 11.7 million marine mammals, fish and other marine life, breeding and feeding habitats, biologically sensitive areas, National Marine Sanctuaries, Marine Reserves and other areas from almost total destruction from weapons testing. The U.S. Navy and Air Force should be protection these ocean resources instead of destroying them in the Atlantic, Pacific, and the Gulf of Mexico. No area is now safe from weapons, sonar, and laser testing.” http://www.agriculturedefensecoalition.org/content/us-navy-pacific-warfare-testing-ranges
Rosalind Peterson states:
“We encourage everyone to take action today to stop the U.S. Navy Destruction of our Oceans through bomb blasts, sonar, and new weapons testing and experiments. Contact your elected officials (and those running for office), and let them know that we won’t vote for them unless they hold U.S. Senate or State Public Hearings on this issue. It is an election year and they want our vote which isn’t for sale at any price.”

US NAVY WAR TESTING!
Be sure to check the US Navy’s environmental Impact Statements.
In a Letter from several Senators including Senator Dianne Feinstein & Senator Barbara Boxer to NOAA-June 17, 2009 is the following statement:
“…In many regions, the Navy plans to increase the number of its exercises or expand the areas in which they may occur, and virtually every coastal state will be affected. Some exercises may occur in the nation’s most biologically sensitive marine habitats, including National Marine Sanctuaries and breeding habitat for the endangered North Atlantic right whale. In all, the Navy anticipates more than 2.3 million takes (significant disruptions in marine mammal foraging, breeding, and other essential behaviors) per year, or 11.7 million takes over the course of a five-year permit…” http://www.agriculturedefensecoalition.org/content/us-navy-pacific-warfare-testing-ranges
War: Drones http://www.agriculturedefensecoalition.org/content/war-cost-drone many unmanned aerial vehicles now under production vary in size from those as small as your fingertip to as large as full-scale airplanes capable of carrying missiles and bombs. And model radio control small airplanes, cars, and helicopters can be purchased at your local toy stores or hobby shops. The elementary technology has been in existence for more than fifty years. It has only been in more recent times that more sophisticated technology, computers, cameras, listening devices, fuels, lighter and stronger construction materials, and other inventions have contributed to new uses for unmanned vehicles (drones).
About Rosalind Peterson:
Rosalind Peterson is the California President and Co-Founder of the Agriculture Defense Coalition, formed in 2006 to protect agricultural crop production from uncontrolled experimental weather modification programs, atmospheric heating and testing programs, and ocean and atmospheric geo-engineering programs. In 1995, she became a certified U.S.D.A. Farm Service Agency Crop Loss Adjustor working in more than ten counties throughout California. Rosalind earned a BA degree from Sonoma State University in Environmental Studies & Planning (ENSP), with emphasis on agriculture and crop production. Between 1989 and 1993 Rosalind worked as an Agricultural Technologist for the Mendocino County Department of Agriculture. Rosalind has won several awards and recognition for her extensive efforts to protect drinking water supplies from toxic chemical contamination in Martinez, California.
Topics Discussed: The 5 Year Navy program, (the potential Genocide of 11.7 million sea mammals) GMO’s agriculture killing livestock & humans,
**Note to the listeners: We will have Rosalind back on the show as soon as we can to discuss the odd use of military aircraft for mosquito spraying because there was a release of genetically modified mosquitoes in Florida earlier this Year (2012) could the experiment have gone wrong…killed the bats, birds and others that prey on them…and what happens when this spray hit mosquito predators? (See the story here)
Calls to Action and Contacts:
The city of Key West passed a resolution in April banning the release of Oxitec’s mosquitoes until more is known about how they might impact other wildlife. (See the story here) http://www.floridatoday.com/article/20120713/NEWS01/307130025/Genetically-modified-mosquito-test-angers-Key-West?nclick_check=

“I have been thinking about geoengineering since the early 1990s, when I wrote one of the first assessments of the technology and its policy implications in the journal literature (#9), work that grew into a more systematic look at the technology and its historical roots that appeared in Annual Review of Energy and the Environment (#26) and in shorter form inNature (#37). My current work on geoengineering includes:

I find myself, at the age of 97, having worked to establish many
Environmental protections for our oceans and our natural resources,
Wondering what the future will be for my children, grandson, and great
In a short time the U.S. Navy and other branches of the military have
begun destroying millions of marine mammals, ocean habitats, coral
reefs…and so much more in the Pacific, Atlantic, and the Gulf of
Mexico. The land and ocean world that our elected officials, the U.S.
Department of Commerce, (NOAA & NMFS), and the various branches of our
military, have elected to destroy with “shock and Awe” methods using
military weapons of all kinds…including new weapons systems and
atmospheric testing, is stunning in scope.
There are no words to describe the carnage that already has been put
into action…and worse yet…the carnage yet to come is almost
incomprehensible. “Our military officers took an oath to uphold the U.S.
Constitution which does not state that the military has the right to
destroy the Earth in the name of war practice.”
And yet today, the sonarizing, bombing, new weapons and atmospheric
testing by the military is destroying the Earth in the name of
“conducting war practice” and physics experiments. Our military is
conducting illegal satellite and drone surveillance on all of
us…killing people with drones…stating that everyone is guilty until
proven innocent of the charges, whether inside or outside of the United
States, in violation of our U.S. Constitution and laws.
It seems that if someone is now killed by a drone they still have to
prove, while dead, to the U.S. that they were innocent whether American
citizens or not…whether a child or an adult. This violates the
principle that we have lived by, under the U.S. Constitution, laws, and
our Bill of Rights, which states that everyone is innocent until proven
guilty. The military and our elected officials have set themselves up to
play “GOD”, judge and jury.
What happens when their next victim is you? When the police or homeland
security, the military, shoots you down and later finds that you were
innocent but now dead? No amount of guilt money can bring you back or
reverse the decision.
Now the U.S. Navy and other branches of our military have decided to
play “GOD” with the Earth and its bounty of natural resources. Why? It
is a good way to financially bankrupt the U.S. with perpetual war and
war costs. (One day we will have to hire the U.S. Navy to repair our
roads since their war practice is reducing domestic spending.)
War practice is a good way to enrich those that produce weapons of war
and keep the free enterprise market going through the U.S. selling war
weapons to other countries making us less safe in the bargain.
I once spoke to a sailor and I asked him if the U.S. decided that my
trying to save 11.7 million marine mammals from war practice and weapons
testing got me arrested by our U.S. government, for being outspoken, if
he would rescue me for exercising my free speech rights under the U.S.
Constitution and Bill of Rights? He stood mute… What will this sailor
tell his family, his children and grandchildren in his later years about
his role in this destruction?
There is a question for all of us:
What will you tell your family and children about why you stood mute and
let this happen? The best that I can say is that I stand today against
this war practice horror to be perpetuated against our oceans and the
Earth. There is no reason or excuse for this destruction to be unleashed
against the Earth.
The U.S. Navy can do better…they can protect our natural resources and
protect those that have no voice…I stand here today as one voice for
our oceans, as one voice who speaks for the whales and other marine life
who have no voice, and as the Earth’s voice to say “NO” more destruction
in the name of war practice for perpetual wars.
