St. Lawrence #Belugas threatened by pipeline plans!  #Environment | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
A beluga whale habitat near Rivière-du-Loup may be in jeopardy if plans for the Energy East pipeline go ahead.

Via Kirsten Massebeau
Marian Locksley's insight:

Meanwhile, the deepwater St. Lawrence Estuary beluga population is a species at risk of extinction and is protected under the Species At Risk Act. According to Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the St. Lawrence is home to an estimated 1,000 belugas.

 

Because of the species’ protected status, the federal government has to protect its habitat.

 

“The building of that deepwater wharf will bring a lot of noise and traffic,” he says.

“If the sound is more distant, there will be some behavioural response. The heaviest response could be leaving the area,” Michaud explains.

“It could mask their usable communication, their activity for finding food or for navigating. High sounds, very powerful sounds... they could have even physical damage.”

 

Comments are worth a read...

these plans put a port right in the middle of an at-risk beluga population.

somewhere between a regular whale and a manatee. These lovely and graceful white creatures need our protection.

#Plankton ~ #OceanDrifters ~ narration by Sir David Attenborough #PlymouthUniversity

"Ocean Drifters, a secret world beneath the waves" is written, produced and directed by Dr Richard Kirby (Marine Institute Research Fellow, Plymouth University) with a narration by Sir David Attenborough and music by Richard Grassby-Lewis.

 

Drawing upon Richard Kirby's plankton imagery, Ocean Drifters reveals how the plankton have shaped life on Earth and continue to influence our lives in ways that most of us never imagine.

 

Further information about the plankton can be found at the Ocean Drifters website (oceandrifters.org) and in the popular book about plankton also titled "Ocean Drifters, a secret world beneath the waves".

The European Parliament backs our vision for an Arctic sanctuary
Greenpeace UK (blog)
They called for (among other things) the establishment of a Sanctuary in the high seas region around the North Pole.
Marian Locksley's insight:

There is one dark cloud. The document asks for a ‘precautionary approach’ to energy exploitation in the Arctic, but from where we’re sitting that should mean only one thing: no drilling at all. If you’re serious about protecting this fragile, vulnerable ecosystem then it’s madness to allow oil platforms and giant drilling ships anywhere near it. To paraphrase Beyoncé, if you like it then you shouldn’t put a rig on it !!!

Best of all, according to records kept by Russian fishery observers during the 2013 season, zero short-tailed albatross were reported as bycatch. Here’s to more continued success of streamers and keeping this streak alive in 2014 and the years to come.

Socialist Strategy for Environmental Movement Socialist Alternative The coal, oil, and gas extracted for fuel and raw materials for manufacturing are permeating into our environment daily, poisoning our water, acidifying our oceans, and pushing us...
Marian Locksley's insight:

Numerically there are more people informed and radicalized around environmental issues today than in the ’60s and ’70s, yet 55% of lakes, streams, and rivers in the U.S. are classified as in “poor condition,”4 20,000 people die prematurely every year in the U.S. alone from air pollution,5 and entire mountaintops are being blasted away to cheaply unearth coal reserves. 


Rising Seas

Scientists are now predicting global temperature will increase a further three degrees – for four degrees total – by the end of the century. The last time the Earth experienced a four-degree shift inglobal temperature was over a 10,000-year period after the last Ice Age ended, roughly 20,000 years ago. This global shift in temperature melted massive ice sheets in North America and Europe, returning enough water to the ocean to raise global sea levels by about 400 feet.

 

Rudy Haugeneder:: So we must stop polluting. That means reducing our expectations. We've never done that in our brief history on this planet.


And it is unlikely to occur -- at least fast enough to save ourselves. 


The only blessing is that Nature is never destroyed -- only changed into something we cannot envision and without us. Can You change?
