"War of the Whales"

Joshua Horwitz

About the Program

Joshua Horwitz talks about the U.S. Navy's submarine detection system that works by flooding areas of the ocean with high-intensity sound.  The sound created by the system also has the unintended consequence of driving whales onto beaches.  Once the problem became an epidemic, scientists and activists launched a legal battle against the Navy.  Mr. Horwitz discussed his book at Politics and Prose Bookstore in Washington, DC.
