    Listen to the Sounds of Narwhals That Have Been Elusive to Science

    not an altogether happy story

    as the ocean warms, ice caps melt and summers get longer in the Arctic, the once inaccessible habitat of east Greenland narwhals is opening up to scientists — as well as cruise ships and prospectors interested in minerals or offshore drilling. And because toothed whales like narwhals use sounds to orient themselves, Dr. Blackwell worries this potential activity will disturb the narwhal’s acoustic way of life.

    yeah, i get that idea too.
    and while nothing short of international proletarian revolution will cure this, i will not sneeze at individualist (i.e. liberal) actions, as long as they're good things in themselves.
