Letter: Growler noise: Prioritize human lives over lives of whales


I want to thank Lauren Kuehne and other scientists in pushing forward the science on noise pollution.

Nobody smart disputes that noise pollution is real.

However, let me state for the record a very clear fact: regardless of the ecological impacts, the nation needs airborne electronic attack.

EA-18G Growlers have not lost a single ground-based convoy in their expert care, saving countless human lives.

Think less of me if you must, but I prioritize human lives over other lives.

I know some will weep for the disturbed whales.

Me, I smile when I hear the sound of freedom and take peace knowing I have held the line to defeat this seditious Sound Defense Alliance in person and not from some bunker.

Also those Growlers are not President Trump’s Growlers nor President-elect Biden’s Growlers; those Growlers are America’s Growlers.
