There is often that big hoopla we all see from time to time aimed at condemning "cubs" being in furry artwork.
The planet shown here has not had a cub born on it for the past 27 million of years.
During the final years this planet supported the last life to inhabit it, it had truly become a worldwide, anti-cub, no cub zone.

Simple arithmetic;
No future generations + last generation dying off of old age = extinction.

However, there is still kind of a music left to be heard on this planet;

Up until 27 million ago, this planet was fertile and rich with life very much like Earth is today. There use to be a wide range of species of mammals, reptiles and birds, all of which were of intelligent and semi-intelligent species, and were males and females who produced young in the way we are all familiar with.
The planet also had plants, grass and trees, many of which produces fruit, nuts, berries and many other eatables.
There were also lots of really awesome insects that looked cool and pretty...and lots of fish and other aquatic life in the planet's many rivers, lakes and seas (the planet had no large oceans dividing the land into continents).
The intelligent mammals, reptiles and birds had a highly advanced civilization, rich in enlightenment, science, art, heritage and culture.
The worldwide climate (although cooler at the north and south poles) ranged about like that of Florida, Southern California, Central and South India, Northern Australia, Okinawa, New Orleans, Spain, Portugal and Hawaii, depending on altitude and the distance from the equator.
Then came an ominous day when a mysterious 'anti-cub' spirit swept across the landscape of the planet, causing no more cubs to conceive to be born.
Over the next 18 to 20 years (which is about 3 of their years), the last cubs who were born on the planet finally grew up and became adults. After that, every living thing on the planet was full grown adult...The entire planet was now a 'no cub zone'. The mysterious spirit that had swept over their world years earlier had also effected all other forms of life as well, from fish, to plant life, to one cell organisms....everything.
The anti-cub spirit didn't actually kill any living thing, but it did render all living species of life incapable of the process of reproduction.
It did not take a rocket scientist to figure out that as the last generation of everything got older, lived out the natural span of their lifetimes, then eventually died off of old age many years later, there would be no subsequent generations to continue the existence of the species of all life on the planet.
In time, the last of all life on the planet had finally finished the course of their lifetimes...That was when all life became extinct, thus the planet became lifeless. The carbon changes due to the sudden absents of all life on the planet started a gradual reaction of changes that would in time cause the planet itself to become inhabitable...primarily chemical changes within the planet's atmosphere.  
Within the next several thousand years, deterioration had done it's job erasing all traces of the bodies of the dead down to dust as though life had never existed on the planet...It took the next few million years for rust, corrosion, deterioration, and the elements to reduce to dust the ruins of their once beautiful cities, highways, and all other animal made things to a point where there was no longer the evidence that any of it had ever existed.    

Now days, the planet has been without organic life for so long, it no longer has the suitable conditions to support life as we know it...and it never will.

There is no longer any known water on the planet's surface...It is believed that the water on the planet has either undergone chemical changes with other elements in the ground and atmosphere, or it has all been deep underground for millions of years.

The atmosphere, lacking water vapor and less then 1/3 the barometric pressure of that of Earth, consists of chlorine gas, chlorofluorocarbons, ammonium chloride, ammonia with smaller percentages of oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen and nitrous oxide.

Gravity is comparable to that of Earth.

Daytime temperatures at the equator reach well over 95 C (200 F), and plummet down to almost minus 185 C (minus 300 F) at night...At the north and south poles, temperatures are constantly between minus 210 C (minus 350 F) and minus 230 C (minus 380 F).
At the planet's polar regions, where temperatures are coldest, are permanent ice sheets of frozen chlorine, nitrogen and ammonia with the presents of liquefied and frozen oxygen. Much of the polar ice sheets have yellowish-greenish and turquoise hues from the chlorine content.  
As for most of the planet, shortly after sundown every evening, temperatures begin to drop low enough for the chlorine and ammonia gases in the atmosphere to condensate and become a heavy dew of liquefied droplets...Continuing through the night, it gets cold enough for ammonia gases in the atmosphere to freeze into a light snowfall...As temperatures further plummet into the night, chlorine gases then start to freeze into a yellowish addition to the light snowfall. The light snowfall lasts throughout the night until shortly past the crack of dawn. At sunrise, all precipitation stops because of the rapid rise in temperatures...That is when the snow cover that fell during the night vaporizes back into white and greenish fog of ammonia and chlorine gases which ascend back up into the atmosphere.
Throughout the daytime, it is so hot you can break an egg on the ground and it will fry...and hot enough to melt a plastic bag.      

There are lethal amounts of ultraviolet radiation everywhere due to chemical deterioration over the millions of years to the planet's ozone layer from the chlorofluorocarbon content in the atmosphere.

It is believed the planet is rich in oil and fossil deposits because it had been inhabited by life at one time.

The cycle of one day is 34 hours, 9 minutes and 47 seconds by Earth's timescale.
Back when the planet was inhabited, from when it was time to get out of bed in the morning, to when it was time to go to bed at night was about 20 or 21 hours by Earth's timescale. And the average amount of sleep time from bedtime to sunrise was 13 to 14 hours (both days and nights were longer).  

It is the 4th planet from it's sun, and completes one yearly revolution in approximately 6 and a half of our Earth years (3 of their years are, or rather were, equal in time to 19 and a half Earth years)

Hopefully those who come to tap into the resourses of this world will not somehow bring back with them the "anti-cub spirit".

There was a sci-fi short where  on a lifeless alien world,locked in ice, a contaminant was found which made ice sink instead of float. The last records of that planet's people showed a world freezing to death, not enough living to bury the dead, the oceans frozen to the ocean floor...and the substance was infinitely dilutable with no loss of its power to make ice sink. The explorers brought back some samples, and soon ice that sinks began to appear on earth,.

 (the story was published in a chemistry & physics journal to help understand chemistry. I can't recall all the details after some 40 years.,but the contaminant substance may have been created in a research lab by accident).

Ammonia will react explosively with chlorine . In dilute ammounts they will react, but the NCL3 is poisonous.

Ammonium chloride is very poisonous. There are those small percentages of hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen...and the chlorofluorocarbons that do dilute the chlorine and ammonia to some degree.

About those who come to tap into the resourses of that world and somehow bring back with them the "anti-cub spirit" does sound rather scary. Other worlds might be smart to make that planet off limits to everyone.

Checked this out in the wiki.
Chloramine (NCl3) is a yellowish pungent oil and is treacherously explosive. It explodes into nitrogen and chlorine. It had been used as a bleaching agent, but was found to cause neurological disorders. I do not think it has any practical use, it being so vicious. Dulong was seriously injured when his first sample exploded without discernable cause.

Interesting story you've come up with in response to anti-cub arguments!

In case you didn't know, I'm mostly okay with people having fun together respectfully, regardless of their age.

A journal that echoes some of my opinions can be found HERE.

Interesting journal.

I appreciate the compliment on my story. Thanks.

Thanks. And thank you much for the fave.

You may have noticed I've added that "and the SF world" to pic 2.
