The worldwide population of polar bears has doubled in the past thirty years. But don’t take my word for it. Let’s listen to a scientist who has been studying polar bears for the past thirty years, both as an academic and as the Canadian government’s director of wildlife research in its most important polar bear habitat, and who is widely regarded as the world’s top authority on the creatures. Here’s Canadian scientist Dr. Mitchell Taylor’s take on the matter:
“It is just silly to predict the demise of polar bears in 25 years based on media-assisted hysteria…There aren’t just a few more bears. There are a HELL OF A LOT MORE BEARS Scientific knowledge has demonstrated that Inuit knowledge was right.”
Inuits, by the way, are what most of us call “Eskimos,” which is to say: the people who actually live among polar bears (rather than those who concoct computer models about them from high-rise corner offices). Inuits have been scoffing at the global-warming wizards and their polar bear hogwash for years.
