    Fat bears are the most eloquent refutation of the doomsayers.

    Polar bear prowling small Labrador town cut off by storm had authorities on high alert

    Posted on March 1, 2019 | Comments Offon Polar bear prowling small Labrador town cut off by storm had authorities on high alert
    From CBC News late yesterday (28 February 2019) comes the news that a polar bear seen skulking around the homes of a small coastal town in Labrador this week has had residents on edge and authorities on high alert. If tragedy struck, the St. Lewis road was blocked by snow and the only way in or out was by helicopter. Message: polar bears are highly dangerous and a bear prowling a community is a very real threat to safety.
    This bear visited Black Tickle in Labrador a few years ago. Edwin Clark photo.
    According to a CTV News follow-up, while the road to St. Lewis was cut off because of a recent snowstorm for most of the week, wildlife officers were able to get in today (Friday 1 March). Sighting about 100km north in Charlottetown earlier in the week are believed to be the same bear.
    The last sighting of the animal was Thursday morning (28 Feb), so the bear may now have left of its own accord. No one seems to have captured a photo.
    However, the fear felt by residents of St. Lewis (population 200) in this story is palpable, especially after the terrifying visuals from the well-publicized invasion by more than 50 polar bears at Belushaya Guba on Novaya Zemlya last month.
    St. Lewis is located at the red marker; Charlottetown is the third town to the north. Both are just north of the Strait of Belle Isle that separates Labrador from the island of Newfoundland.

    Even worse- it’s written by Susan Crockford, who’s such a well known fake ‘expert’ that she’s actually been highlighted in the scientific literature as the shining example of false authority.

    Corrigendum: Internet Blogs, Polar Bears, and Climate-Change Denial by Proxy | BioScience | Oxford Academic

    This paper has been corrected online and in print in order to clarify Dr. Crockford's scientific expertise and financial links in relation to the arguments made in the paper (BioScience 68: 281–287). The corrected text is as follows:

    First change: Notably, as of this writing, Crockford has neither conducted any original research nor published any articles in the peer-reviewed literature on the effects of sea ice on the population dynamics of polar bears.

    Second change: Some of the most prominent AGW deniers, including Crockford, are linked with or receive support from organizations that downplay AGW (e.g., Dr. Crockford has previously been paid for report writing by the Heartland Institute).

    Caveat: it was published by Oxford University Press (you know, one of the worlds oldest and most respected Universities?) and not an anonymous or pseudonymous internet blog, so many deniers will criticize the source.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    All part of the effort to marginalize her by those whom she exposed as laughably in error. The bottom line is that she has been consistently right and they have been repeatedly shown (by her) to be wrong. They are embarrassed and angry. All the ad hominems in the world cannot compensate for her detractors' crushing defeat on the substance.

    Yes. I’m sure all the denier blogs say she’s right.

    The proof is in the silence of her critics, who literally no longer have a case to make, and the robust population of thriving polar bears.

    Her critics are continually publishing research in journals.

    She is blogging and writing reports for denier organizations that educated people consider a joke.

    Sorry, but they've published nothing to contradict her. And they're keeping quiet about their earlier predictions of a bear apocalypse. They know better now.

    Yes, they haven’t published a paper tearing her apart since.... 2018.
