moniquill: ohsnail: Here’s the deal, guys. Seismic air gun testing is this totally bullshit method of searching for oil reserves in the ocean floor or something. It’s not important, look it up on Wikipedia. What IS important is that air guns are so bone-crushingly, pants-poopingly loud that in an underwater environment, they’re all you can hear. Bad news for whales and dolphins, who primarily...
