This is one of a steady drizzle of events planned to stoke up alarm in the run-up to the UN's major conference on climate change in Copenhagen next December. But one of the world's leading experts on polar bears has been told to stay away from this week's meeting, specifically because his views on global warming do not accord with those of the rest of the group.
Global Warming is a cult!
No, no, no...
Global Warming is a scam!
Dr Mitchell Taylor has been researching the status and management of polar bears in Canada and around the Arctic Circle for 30 years, as both an academic and a government employee. More than once since 2006 he has made headlines by insisting that polar bear numbers, far from decreasing, are much higher than they were 30 years ago. Of the 19 different bear populations, almost all are increasing or at optimum levels, only two have for local reasons modestly declined.
Dr Taylor agrees that the Arctic has been warming over the last 30 years. But he ascribes this not to rising levels of CO2 – as is dictated by the computer models of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and believed by his PBSG colleagues – but to currents bringing warm water into the Arctic from the Pacific and the effect of winds blowing in from the Bering Sea.
He has also observed, however, how the melting of Arctic ice, supposedly threatening the survival of the bears, has rocketed to the top of the warmists' agenda as their most iconic single cause. The famous photograph of two bears standing forlornly on a melting iceberg was produced thousands of times by Al Gore, the WWF and others as an emblem of how the bears faced extinction – until last year the photographer, Amanda Byrd, revealed that the bears, just off the Alaska coast, were in no danger. Her picture had nothing to do with global warming and was only taken because the wind-sculpted ice they were standing on made such a striking image.
Global Warming is a lie!
Global Warming is a hoax!
Global Warming is a swindle!
Here is the Swindler-in-Chief: Obama pushes Senate to act on climate measure.
His own EPA censored an EPA employee critical of the EPA's position on CO2. These are your liberal democRATs who are politicizing science. They just want results that comply with their ideology.
The liberal democRAT donkey-holes who brayed about "rushing to war", even though it took over a year and countless debates and resolutions, have rammed through the most radical leftist, communist agenda in the history of this nation within a six month period. They did this by passing bills nobody read. heck, now we found out these jack asses are voting on bills that are not even written. They don't want American people to know what they are doing.
Those idiots will find out what happens to the environment when people get poorer. They want to impoverish us by artificially increasing the cost of energy which will increase the price of all the goods and services. There is a reason poor countries have the worst environment because people have to take care of themselves first. That is what is going to happen when these utopian ideas implemented here.
