Pregnant sperm whale found dead with 49 pounds of plastic in stomach

The carcass of a pregnant sperm whale that washed up in Sardinia, Italy, last week had 22 kilograms (49 pounds) of plastic in its stomach. The animal, which was eight meters (26 feet) long, washed up on a beach in the Sardinian tourist hotspot of Porto Cervo. Last month, a young whale was found dead in the Philippines with 40 kilograms (88 pounds) of plastic bags in its stomach.

Our days are numbered, this is just one of many signs of our inevitable extinction.

Maybe you should stop eating the plastic

Fuck the whales. That's like if we started eating dog poop to the point it starts killing people so we come to the conclusion we need to kill all dogs... Humans make plastic, deal with it, we are figuring it out as we go, save your cocodrile tears, saying something stupid like 'muh, we are so cruel, we shouldn't exist' is pathetic. Grow up. Kill yourself if you really feel that, don't just wag your finger around to get some virtue points.

Oh jesus. Poor thing. Climate change won't kill us but ocean pollution certainly can!
