    Polar Bears Are Thriving

    The doomsayers must be frustrated. Those pesky polar bears just keep thriving despite predictions of their demise. How many times do the doomsayers have to be wrong before they admit their error or people just start ignoring them? Right now the global polar bear population estimate is just under 30,000.


    State of the Polar Bear Report 2018: Polar bears continue to thrive

    Posted on February 27, 2019 | Comments Offon State of the Polar Bear Report 2018: Polar bears continue to thrive
    PRESS RELEASE 27 FEBRUARY 2019, INTERNATIONAL POLAR BEAR DAY

    New Report: Polar Bears Continue To Thrive



    Inuit paying the price of rising bear populations
    The State of the Polar Bear Report for 2018, published today by the Global Warming Policy Foundation, confirms that polar bears are continuing to thrive, despite recent reductions in sea ice levels. This finding contradicts claims by environmentalists and some scientists that falls in sea ice would wipe out bear populations.
    The report’s author, zoologist Dr Susan Crockford, says that there is now very little evidence to support the idea that the polar bear is threatened with extinction by climate change.
    We now know that polar bears are very resourceful creatures. They have made it through warm periods in the past and they seem to be taking the current warming in their stride too”.
    In fact, it is the human residents of the Arctic who seem to have most to worry about. With more and more bears on the landscape at all times of year, there have been worrying reports of people being threatened, mauled and even killed, particularly from Nunavut, in the Canadian north.
    As Dr Crockford explains,
    The people of Nunavut are not seeing starving, desperate bears – quite the opposite. Yet polar bear specialists are saying these bears are causing problems because they don’t have enough sea ice to feed properly. The facts on the ground make their claims look silly, including the abundance of fat bears. Residents are pushing their government for a management policy that makes protection of human life the priority.”. . . .

    LOL! Seriously? The Global Warming Policy Foundation? Are you not aware that the GWPF is a right-wing anti-science activist group, not a scientific publisher?

    Your propaganda stance is noted, but will be ignored.

    It is the propaganda stance of the GWPF that is relevant here. It's their propaganda that you are disseminating.

    Discuss the data or withdraw.

    Post something something worth discussing (i.e. actual peer-reviewed work rather than right-wing propaganda) or be ignored.

    The thread will benefit from your absence.

    So the fact that they survive DESPITE THE ABSENCE OF ICE shows there's no warming? Such resourceful creatures, unlike Climate deniers.

    1. The bears were not so long ago unwitting props in a global warming propaganda campaign that collapsed in fraud.
    2. The bears are indeed resourceful, and as a bonus, arctic sea ice has been stable.

    Data Show Polar Sea Ice Stable 12 Years, Cause Global Warming Alarmists To Melt Down

    By P Gosselin on 23. February 2019


    By Kirye
    and P. Gosselin

    A look at the real observed data on polar sea ice shows that the situation has been surprisingly stable for more than one decade, now, despite the cult-like doomsday prophecies that much more ice would be gone by now.
    For the climate change cultists who have been banking on climate system collapse and a rescue by global socialists, these are indeed depressing times.
    Arctic sea ice volume stable 12 years
    What really has been frustrating the climate alarmists is the Arctic, which many “experts” promised 10 years ago that the late summer Arctic ice would be gone by now. What follows is a chart of the data from the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) that shows that nothing of the sort is happening.

    Data source: DMI
    As we can see, Arctic sea ice volume maximum, which occurs in early spring, still reaches the levels seen 10 years ago. Moreover the all-important summer minimum — considered a “tipping point” by doomsday climate alarmists — is even higher than it was 10 years ago. The linear trend for sea ice volume has stood steady for 12 years. . . .

    International Polar Bear Day: a time to admit the species is not threatened with extinction due to reduced sea ice habitat

    Posted on February 26, 2019 | Comments Offon International Polar Bear Day: a time to admit the species is not threatened with extinction due to reduced sea ice habitat
    Times have changed: where once many scientists worried that polar bears could not survive an Arctic with 40% less ice, now the concern is that people of the Arctic might not be able to keep themselves safe from growing numbers of increasingly fearless bears. . . .
