Analysis: Polar Bears & Coral Reefs Are Doing Just Fine

Polar Bears and Coral Reefs Are Doing Just Fine By Linnea Lueken We live on a beautiful planet, filled with a dizzying assortment of interesting creatures and living organisms. The vast majority of people want to see that life flourish, so it is no wonder that particularly attractive species like cute (usually) polar bears and colorful […]

New Study that Claims it Can Directly Link GHG Emissions to Polar Bear Cub Survival is Poppycock From Polar Bear Science By Susan Crockford A global warming miracle has happened. While no scientist worldwide has ever drawn a straight line between greenhouse gas emissions and population declines in a species considered at risk due to climate change, a new paper just published in Science Magazine claims to have performed this unlikely feat for […]

Conservation officers misleading the public about polar bear problems in Churchill Canadian government-funded media outlet CBC ran a story this morning about problem polar bears in the town of Churchill, Manitoba, the self-described “Polar Bear Capital of the World” that contains some very misleading statements from Manitoba Conservation officers. (also see here) Breakup of sea ice on Hudson Bay was earlier this year than it has been […]

Climate activists are silent on polar bears because their doom-mongering blew up in their faces A Grist article last week pandered to activist polar bear specialists over their failed climate change agenda as it tried to minimize why the climate movement doesn’t talk about polar bears anymore. Apparently, the Arctic icon has “largely fallen out of fashion” through “overexposure” resulting in polar bear images invoking “cynicism and fatigue.” But that isn’t […]

15 years after ESA listing as ‘threatened’ due to sea ice loss polar bears are abundant & thriving Dr. Susan Crockford Experts who used the American Endangered Species Act (ESA) to list polar bears as ‘threatened’ in May 2008 were mistaken: sea ice authorities got their predictions wrong about future ice extent and polar bear specialists erroneously declared that two-thirds of polar bears would disappear if summer sea ice declines continued unabated. […]

Bjorn Lomborg: Partisan ‘fact checkers’ spread climate-change misinformation

Bjorn Lomborg: Partisan ‘fact checkers’ spread climate-change misinformation The Wall Street Journal, 27 January 2023 Partisan “fact checks” are undermining open discourse about important issues, including climate change. Earlier this month I wrote an accurate post on Facebook about the growing polar-bear population. The post undercut alarmist climate narratives, so it was wrongly tagged as a falsehood. […]

Live Science Misleads on Extreme Weather, Tipping Points, & Polar Bears, Among Other Topics By  Linnea Lueken Live Science misleads readers with a recently posted “listicle” discussing ten types of extreme weather events which it says became further proof in 2022 that climate change is causing an impending climate “disaster.” The claims therein are either false, incomplete, or misleading. Three claims Live Science made in its list stand out […]

Newly-discovered SE Greenland polar bear subpopulation: another assumption proven false – Polar bear numbers increased despite ‘impending doom based on implausible climate models’ Researchers have discovered that the 300 or so polar bears living in SE Greenland (below 64 degrees N) are so genetically distinct and geographically isolated that they qualify as a unique subpopulation, adding one more to the 19 subpopulations currently described by the IUCN Polar Bear Specialist Group. NASA photo, SE Greenland glacier-front […]

UN awards Attenborough prize for his devotion to broadcasting climate breakdown nonsense The UN Environmental Program (UNEP) last month presented Sir David Attenborough a ‘Champion of the Earth’ award for his devotion to frightening children and adults about the fake catastrophes of climate change. They didn’t put it quite like that, of course, but given their agenda promoting the scariest scenarios based on highly improbable climate models, it’s no wonder the UN is […]

STUDY: Polar bears continued to thrive in 2021 – Bear population increases to 32,000, up from about 26,000 London, 26 February – Polar bears are thriving, says prominent Canadian zoologist. In the State of the Polar Bear Report 2021, published by the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) ahead of International Polar Bear Day tomorrow, zoologist Dr. Susan Crockford explains that while the IUCN Polar Bear Specialist Group (PBSG) promotes the impression that polar bear population numbers […]
