The US Navy and sonar

Of course you have heard by now that the US Navy is allowed to continue using sonar in the area off the California coastline. It has been proven that the use of sonar can damage and even kill whales. Sound waves are amplified in water much more so than in air so the sound to whales emitted by the Navy's sonar is deafening to them.
