Whales' WARNING?!?

Blue Whale Song Mystery Baffles Scientists

All around the world, blue whales aren’t singing like they used to, and scientists have no idea why.

The largest animals on Earth are singing in ever-deeper voices every year. Among the suggested explanations are ocean noise pollution, changing population dynamics and new mating strategies. But none of them is entirely convincing.

“We don’t have the answer. We just have a lot of recordings,” said Mark McDonald, president of Whale Acoustics, a company that specializes in the sonic monitoring of cetaceans.


“It’s a fascinating finding,” said John Calombokidis, a blue whale expert at the Cascadia Research Collective. “It’s even more remarkable, given that the songs themselves differ in different oceans. There seem to be these distinct populations, yet they’re all showing this common shift.”


That is down right fascinating....and spooky.

Aw, Loam. There's an active thread already here:

Not to say that maybe there shouldn't be one in Fragile Earth, too. Or both.

I found this super interesting. I love how you included the acoustic data right on yours.

My apologies...

How strange is that? A search of the term "Blue Whale" does not pull up that thread, but rather this one.

here's my post from the other thread...

where i venture the guess that the Whales are aware of 2012,
the catastrophe awaiting the planet... & the change of the Whale song is actually their 'sullen' Last-Will & Testament,
spoken/sung in deeper tones as do humans when speaking of such reverent things.

Consider this link:

where it tells us that the whale songs of late, (keeping with the fish category of Earth lifeforms) are weirdly strange...

Has anyone considered that the Carp are not just expanding their territory---but are attempting to excape by going to the GreatLakes?

I take the Whale's change of octive/tone to be something akin to their self-awareness that there is an approaching disaster...and they have no-where else to they are 'tweeting' in Whale Talk, much like some of us humans log on top ATS to discuss 2012/end times/ Armageddon.

If we would take notice beyond the Carp & Whales, who might be sensitive to the stress of earth crust dynamics & the low frequency waves these stresses produce... are trying to excape(as in the carp),

or are just telling their 'Wills' to all other Whales who 'hear them' in the vast ocean through the medium of sound; by Singing their Wills

the basic idea, of intelligent Whales & the approaching end-times and the potential magnetic-pole shift.... could be really 'sexed up',
maybe even a 'B' Sci-Fi flick

I've noticed lately that the simple search isn't turning up half of what is there.

That's a problem, isn't it? I should have said something.

LOL, I absolutely love Dolphins. I remember when I was on a week-long Coral Reef Sailing Expedition many years ago in the Florida Keys, and as I was chilling at the bow of our 46' Sloop I suddenly noticed a shadow in the crystal clear water (Only about 20 to 40 feet deep, and you could see our shadow upon the sea floor). Then out of nowhere, I saw the shape of an Atlantic Grey Bottlenose Dolphin, and a pod of them swam with us for a while, riding our bow wave along the way. The coolest thing however, was when the Dolphin turned sideways and swam a moment with it's eye looking directly at me, and I could honestly swear that he/she knew exactly what they were doing, and you could not help but be extremely awed by the feeling.
