California farmers have filed a petition to take Puget Sound's killer whales off the endangered-species list, arguing they are not a separate population.

Robert Zwilling In its petition, Pacific Legal Foundation stated there are about 50,000 killer whales roaming all the oceans of the world.

It would appear that there are far fewer orcas than whales, so I guess to low resolution people, 50,000 orcas scattered across the entire world must be an unimaginably large number.

And we probably should not be letting runoff water escape so easily. Eventually it will have to be recycled.
