1. And elephants, giraffes, tigers, lions, polar bears and the rest.

It’s very sad. I think the ocean critters have it the worst, they’re being hit from all fronts: overfishing, ocean acidification, plastic pollution and warming water temperatures.

When everything and everyone has died off, eventually the planet will heal and regenerate new life.

2. So is everything else going to extinction.

We are currently well into the sixth mass extinction largely caused by humans. It is only a matter of time until the sixth mass extinction is complete.

3. Humans too, we're just in the 18th/19th century phase of the whale version....

but it *is* coming... except ours is self-inflicted -- well by antecedent generations anyhow, at minimum. Can't really say that about whales.

5. I don't think homans will go extintct

we are too adaptable. But we are making the planet uninhabitable for many and the number of people and the lives they lead in the future will be vastly different.

6. you might be right.

the waters have been treated, like everything else, like open sewers.
they are so sensitive to the changes. and they are so very thoroughly changed.

they and the coral reefs are the canaries.
