“Judge Creatura was particularly interested in how jet noise impacted children and birds. He zeroed in on why the Navy claimed they couldn’t do actual sound monitoring. He also asked the Navy’s attorney why the Navy couldn’t do an actual study of the harms of jet noise to students. He asked why the Navy had lumped all bird species into one category in the EIS instead of examining the impacts on various species individually. Another key line of questioning centered on El Centro and the fact that the Navy, instead of constructively analyzing it as a possible alternative, just superficially dismissed it as an option.”
Thanks to all who were able to listen in!
