there are other lifeforms on the planet that undoubtedly find the human noises really offensive
Including some humans, but that's another story.
They can do the same thing one of my dogs used to do around every July 4th when the noise started. When he heard the first firecracker of the year that dog went nuts and ran in a panic through town until he could find someplace to hide and we never saw him again until July 5th or 6th.
Seriously though it's a really big ocean, occupies the majority of the planet, and humans tend to only play really close to shore around a few beaches with toys like those. I think the whales can have the other 95% of the ocean.
Sometimes a fun toy is just a fun toy and isn't a global mission statement.
