Could be worse. It might have been "Ice 9 kills blue whales."

Cetaceans needed.
Wonder how the Global Warmists spin the fact that these whales died due to much later than normal ice buildup and displacement? Unusually late ice melt this year...refutes any Global Warming claim
If 9 blue whales is 4% of the total population, that means there are 225 blue whales.

9 divided by .04 = 225

Ambivalence: Mark Ratner: some_beer_drinker: Mark Ratner: If 9 blue whales is 4% of the total population, that means there are 225 blue whales.

9 divided by .04 = 225

because this. thanks for the math, ratner

To put this in perspective in relation to the human world population, it would be like 286.2 million people died (based on a March 26, 2014 estimate of 7.155 billion people.)

Thank you, rain man.  How many people would equal the weight of a blue whale?

A Blue Whale can weigh 200 or more short tons (2,000 lbs.) which makes the average Blue Whale weight in pounds about 400,000 lbs.
Lets use an average human weight of 140 lbs.
400,000 / 140 = 2857.1428
So you get about 2857 people together on a scale and you have yourself an average weighing Blue Whale!
Can someone explain to me why the word of the Fark is the thing which is appropriate in the headline of this?

News: Man goes fishing.
Fark: Does not catch the thing.

I remember when the word of this had the meaning

News: Man kills the wife of he.
Fark: With the scales of the dead fish and the husband was also the mayor of two cities.

Sucks for the whales though.

Only in the Atlantic (according to the headline)

Mark Ratner: Lets use an average human weight of 140 lbs

now do it using average US weight
