We don't need to turn the ocean into a blast zone for our energy needs. Seismic airguns create intense, repetitive booms that will drown out the dolphins' songs, deafening, injuring, or even killing the animals close to the blasts.

Despite knowing the risks, and being called out by 100,000 Oceana supporters, the Obama administration recently took another step forward in allowing these blasts—used to search for oil and gas on the ocean floor—to begin in the Atlantic. Guaranteed to injure thousands of dolphins and whales and put local industries at risk, these blasts are only the first step in allowing offshore drilling off the Atlantic shore—the same dirty practice that led to BP's oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.
