Polar bears fired as mascot of climate socialists



The Guardian reported, "Guardian picture editor Fiona Shields explains why we are going to be using fewer polar bears and more people to illustrate our coverage of the climate emergency."

That is because there are too many polar bears. An estimated 25,000 to 40,000 polar bears live in the Arctic -- up from just 5,000 a half-century ago.

The Guardian was too dishonest to admit it.

But the Canadian Press reported last year, "There are too many polar bears in parts of Nunavut and climate change hasn’t yet affected any of them, says a draft management plan from the territorial government that contradicts much of conventional scientific thinking.

"The proposed plan — which is to go to public hearings in Iqaluit on Tuesday — says that growing bear numbers are increasingly jeopardizing public safety and it’s time Inuit knowledge drove management policy.

"'Inuit believe there are now so many bears that public safety has become a major concern,' says the document, the result of four years of study and public consultation.

"'Public safety concerns, combined with the effects of polar bears on other species, suggest that in many Nunavut communities, the polar bear may have exceeded the co-existence threshold.'

"Polar bears killed two Inuit last summer."

The Guardian was odd in explaining why it dumped the polar bear after serving as the mascot for the environmental industry for 50 years.

The newspaper said, "We know, from years of experience, that people love polar bears and pandas, so it is easy to see how these appealing creatures have become the emblems for the topics of endangered species and what we previously termed as global warming. Often, when signalling environmental stories to our readers, selecting an image of a polar bear on melting ice has been the obvious – though not necessarily appropriate – choice. These images tell a certain story about the climate crisis but can seem remote and abstract – a problem that is not a human one, nor one that is particularly urgent."

The new images being used to illustrate the climate hoax include Red Chinese using masks to avoid breathing particulates from the annual Gobi Desert Dust Storm, as well as steam from cooling towers.

But carbon dioxide is invisible. And masks cannot prevent one from inhaling carbon dioxide. Indeed, a mask might trap the carbon dioxide you exhale.

Journalists have abandoned the truth in favor of promoting communism.

Think not?

Communist Red China is exempt from every proposed restriction by environmentalists.

  1. communist China is exempt from even harsh language by environmentalists.

    2. The Chinese have a super secret process that makes their coal plant output environmentally friendly.

  2. "...these images tell a certain story about the climate crisis."

    Yeah, that story is a bald-faced lie. I remember one such picture that was printed by all left-wing media around the world. It was taken by a woman on a cruise ship way south of the Arctic, and the truth is that Polar bears routinely swim many miles in the ocean.

    1. The Latin for Polar Bear is "Ursus Maritimus," (water bear). A more accurate description in many ways.

  3. ...To remove a nuisance/ dangerous animal, utilize the Rockies grizzly bear code (e.g. protected species)and apply it to the polar bears --- 'shoot n' shovel.' Zbest

  5. Isn't it funny that a global problem seems to have been created by us alone and is ours to solve singlehandedly?

  6. If you want to have a polar bear fur rug in your man cave one can apply for a hunting license allowing you to shoot one. Apparently the fee is a bit higher if you want the pelt. This has been allowed for years.

    An interesting statistic: that China now burns more coal than all other countries put together: 1907m tonnes vs 1864m tonnes.

  8. Someone could make some big money, if they'd organize a cruise ship (Nat Review has some idle, I hear) to the Arctic for the environmentalists to pet the sweet cuddly polar bears!

    This would bring happiness to both the environmentalists and the polar bears, who wouldn't have to struggle for their next meal; and it would provide me with endless delight if it were filmed for my edification and enlightenment!

  9. The big fallacy about polar bears is that they live on the arctic ice. In fact, the largest number in Canada live along the shore of Hudson Bay, where food is plentiful.

  10. Imagine a scenario where aliens came to Earth and informed us that in five years time we would need to provide an accurate (within 1/10 of a degree Fahrenheit) average global temperature or else every current leader of every state, province, or country would be executed by the superior alien race. The rest of the world would have to endure all technology developed since 1900 made unusable for 10 years as punishment for getting the answer wrong.

    In this scenario, it would be easy to see how every rational individual on Earth would genuinely want to succeed in getting the honest correct answer to avoid the punishment from the aliens. That is when we would find out that we don't even know what the entire Earth's temperature is and never have known. It would take a worldwide effort involving every adult worldwide and more than 50 trillion dollars of labor and equipment to get the correct answer to that level of accuracy. Just knowing the high and low temp of the day is nowhere near good enough. You would have to know for each minute of each day what the surface temperature is for every square mile of land and ocean. We could never even manufacture enough thermometers to do it let alone have the manpower/logistics to keep up with the monitoring, calibration, and error checking that would be needed. Using a sampling method is less than ideal because of cloud cover, shading by trees, mountains, etc, depressions in the land which collect cold air when there is little to no wind, even UV absorption amounts differing due to the color of the ground.

    There is an area of land in South America that is the size of Texas that currently is covered by just one temperature station. ONE!

    If our lives depended on it, we might be able to determine the Earth's average temp. within, say 5 degrees F. but it would cost more to do it than it's really worth. The truth is that NOBODY knows.

  11. Canada just fired a bear-expert professor for saying the population was stable. Because Science.

    1. That was the University of Victoria, not renewing adjunct (unpaid) status to Prof Susan Cockford, whose research “almost single-handedly blew up the climate change movement’s promotion of the bears as iconic victims of anthropogenic global warming.” The harm to Prof Cockford is in not having university affiliation to apply for grants.

  13. The right should adopt the polar bear as their mascot of climate change fraud.
    For a long time I said we should take their symbols and language and adapt and adopt them for our own just to confuse and piss them off. A pic of a happy smiling polar bear is a good start.

  15. Ha! Now the polar bears are endangering the Inuits (the Indigenous People)? There’s a dilemma…

    As for the people in masks, our suburban community is now home to numbers of Chinese from HongKong and Taiwan as well as mainland China. What appear to be the poorer classes (relatively speaking - they all have money, some lots of money) wear masks all the time here. I could understand it in North China. That Gobi dust is killer. But here?

    As a side note, the women wear long gloves and those big coal scuttle sunbonnets. To the Chinese, suntanned skin is a sign one is a peasant.
