If things continue at the present pace, it is likely that the whales, sharks, tuna will follow the diprotodons, ground sloths and mammoths to oblivion. Among all the world's large creatures, the only survivors of the human flood will be humans themselves, and the framyard animals that serve as galley slaves in Noah's Ark.
