The Perpetually Endangered Polar Bears are Doing Great

The Perpetually Endangered Polar Bears are Doing Great
There are more polar bears than at any time in 60 years.

My daughter loves polar bears. All bears really, but especially polar bears. If it’s white and covered in fur, she’s likely to mistake it for a polar bear. There’s something about bears that kids love. In real life, polar bears are one of the few bears that will prey aggressively on human beings.

And environmentalists love scaring little kids by telling them that all the polar bears are about to die off because people insist on heating their homes and driving to work.

Every December and July brings another edition of the same warmunist nonsense.

Canada’s polar-bear capital Churchill warms too fast for bears – BBC

Churchill embodies the inextricable link between preserving the natural world and fighting global warming. The polar-bear capital of the world is simply getting too warm for polar bears.

As Bjorrn Lomborg recently demonstrated, there are more polar bears than at any time in 60 years.

Not long ago, environmentalists constantly used pictures of polar bears to highlight the dangers of climate change. Polar bears even featured in Al Gore’s terrifying movie An Inconvenient Truth. But the reality is that polar bear numbers have been increasing — from somewhere between five and 10,000 polar bears in the 1960s up to around 26,000 today. We don’t hear this news, however. Instead, campaigners just quietly stopped using polar bears in their activism.

Hunting reduced polar bear populations, some supposed ‘warming’ trend never did. That won’t stop the lie from being retold because it is an emotionally effective lie.

The polar bears are always endangered and the green brigade is always rushing out to save them by raising taxes to change the weather.
