Now, facing possible extinction themselves, environmental extremists have a new campaign to silence those who disagree with them. The campaign begins with a heart-tugging study. From 2004-2009, the World Wildlife Fund studied the swimming habits of polar bears, concentrating specifically on those that swim long distances. Operating on the assumption that these bears have to swim farther because climate change is melting the ice, the study found that the mortality rate for polar bear cubs is higher than those who spend less time in the water. The scare tactic features a picture of a polar bear appearing to be tossed about helplessly in rough seas. Bears are capable of swimming a hundred miles or more.
Two questions were unanswered, however. First, is the ice really melting by the mile, making these swims more treacherous? Second, how does one explain the fact that the polar bear population has been increasing over the last generation?
The publication Science notes that Antarctica accounts for 90 percent of the world’s ice. “The ice is 7,000 feet thick and the average temperature is minus 37 degrees Celsius.” At the North Pole, the ice is not as thick. “The ice floats in the Arctic Ocean. If it melts, sea levels would not be affected,” the publication said.
In Britain, the BBC has announced that it will restrict the airtime given to climate change skeptics. The BBC considers climate science to be “settled” and believes that it is therefore under no obligation to present views to the contrary. The BBC obviously has forgotten that once upon a time it was “settled” that the world was flat.
The scientific journal Remote Sensing found that far less global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted. “The sensitivity of the climate system … remains the largest source of uncertainty in projections of future anthropogenic climate change….We find that it is not possible to quantify the feedbacks which determine climate sensitivity.”
As long as the president of the United States believes in global warming, he and his EPA undoubtedly will keep it in our faces and continue to attempt to lead our children astray.
