“In a May 2012 report on sonar use, the navy said acoustic sources and sonar more than 2.5 million times annually exposed marine animals to sounds considered ‘disturbing’, while around 500 times a year marine animals were exposed to sound levels that were considered to result in injury. … Even when stranding does not result, military sonar can cause hearing loss and internal injuries to marine mammals that results in death, even if the animal does not end up on shore.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jun/14/stranded-whales-ocean-navy-sonars)

“In rich Western nations, preaching about how eating a lot of meat is bad for both one’s health and the planet provokes resentment.

How about tackling the duck?

Have to burp ’em, else they swell up and float away. That’s not clouds; that’s methane-high sheep.
