Sound Off to the National Marine Fisheries Service

the us navy is moving closer to deploying a new high-powered sonar system — despite evidence that it may endanger whales and other sea creatures.

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


With the positive environmental inpact statement in hand, the Fisheries Service has proposed allowing the Navy to implement its low frequency active sonar. Before making a final decision, the Fisheries Service is welcoming public input on the topic through May 18 (letters must be postmarked by that date). Comments can be sent to:

Donna Wieting
Marine Mammal Conservation Divison
Office of Protected Resources
National Marine Fisheries Service
1315 East-West Highway
Silver Spring 20910-3226

The National Marine Fisheries Service is also holding three public hearings where citizens can voice their opinions about the implementation of low frequency active sonar:

April 26, 3-7p.m.

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
