The Guardian has a good article questioning how humans are to blame for mass whale strandings. It's a topic we discuss often on TreeHugger -- especially recently as scientists witness more frequent strandings, which has them, and us, deeply concerned. As the Guardian article discusses, it seems to be human-created noise, especially military sonar testing, that has whales, dolphins, and even squid on the run.
