Not much man, just stating the obvious, that the world is going to ****, and mankind is trying to destroy everything worthwhile. You know, the usual :rolleyes:

What's ridiculous?

That it's extinct, that they think it's extinct or that someone cares that it is?

why is caring that a species of animal that was here before any humans, is now extinct because of humans ridiculous?

Oh believe me, I don't think that's ridiculous at all.
It's extremely sad.

I asked because a lot of people today just bash anything that has to do with environmental issues. I'm not sure what angle he's coming from with the "this is ridiculous" comment.

That it's extinct, too bad

That they think it's extinct, just as bad, I hope you feel worse

That someone cares, yes, I do, more so than most people, 'cause it just leads to more extinction of other species, but, hopefully, we'll make room for more people to over-populate and ruin the planet. Thank God for that!:rolleyes:

I got ya and I agree with ya.
Like I told Slappy, I wasn't sure from what viewpoint on the story you were coming from.

The line from one of the Matrix movies sums it up pretty well. "humans are a virus to this planet".

It's sad. Whats sadder is it will most likely only get worse. Hopefully we'll starting sending people to Mars so they can live there

The species declined over decades due to a variety of causes, including dam-building, environmental degradation, hunting by humans, and ship collisions.[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_River_Dolphin#_note-0)[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_River_Dolphin#_note-BBC)

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_River_Dolphin#_note-BBC)
As China developed economically, pressure on the river dolphin grew swiftly. Industrial and residential waste flowed into the Yangtze. The riverbed was dredged and reinforced with concrete in numerous locations. Ship traffic multiplied, and the size of the boats grew. Fishermen employed wider and more lethal nets, robbing the dolphin of its food and occasionally killing one in the catch.


Noise pollution made the nearly blind animal prone to collisions with propellers, while fish nets killed many others.[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_River_Dolphin#_note-Last_Chance) The Three Gorges Dam (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Gorges_Dam) has irrevocably altered the habitat of the Chinese River Dolphin. Stocks of the dolphin's prey species had declined drastically in recent decades, with populations of some fish declining to one thousandth of their pre-industrial levels.[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_River_Dolphin#_note-BBC)

There's just too many people on earth for all species of dolphins to live independtly, they really have no chance. All we can hope for is the strong ones to survive and carry on what the weak ones could not. God I hate human redevelopment. There should be a rule on that one.:rolleyes:

The problem is even if as a nation we regulate for the environment unfortunately othe countries will not follow suit. Look at how Iceland is trying to fight the whaling commission. As long as people can make a buck from the carcasses of dead animals animals will be hunted to extinction.

Then it's the bigger animals, lions, tigers, elephants, rhinos, and such. Don't forget the whales too. :(
