Too Many Whales?

Whales recovering. Thats good. Right? Not according to “experts”.

This is good … right?

Rapid growth in humpback whales in the Australian Southern Ocean could lead to a ‘population explosion’

And this is good too … right?

The population was brought to the brink of extinction in the 1960s, with just a few hundred surviving in the wild, a result of commercial whaling.

However, conservation efforts and the introduction of the Endangered Species Act saw the humpback population almost totally recover by 2015, to more than 25,000.

But nooo. Climate change rears its ugly head!

experts are now warning that the population could become too large for the ecosystem to support because of declining food sources in our oceans due to climate change.

What declining food sources? The population of whales just went up by 100x!!!

Climate change is such a party pooper.

If they stopped shooting 600 polar bears a year there would be a population explosion too.  Oh wait … there is one.

The “experts” are always sad when the poster children of climate change refuse to die off.

Rapid growth in humpback whales in the Australian Southern Ocean could lead to a 'population explosion' and an even bigger fall in numbers, according to scientists. They warn that they are growing at a rate which could get too high causing a 'significant crash'
