Should have put a /S on that.
Thank you. Someone fell down on the job. LOL
Pure B. S.
Like PT Barnum said,Theres a Bullshit Artist born every minute.
Why didn’t the camera crew do something to help the polar bear? They were right friggin next to it!
And, like many other bears, such as the grizzly, polar bears sometimes go through dramatic cycles of feast and famine. Bears can respond to improved conditions: Weve followed bears that went from bone racks to obese over a few months, said Derocher. Niko Inuarak lives in Pond Inlet, NU and comes from a family of hunters and guides. He said his father Charlie was not baffled to see a polar bear in that state and had seen it often before. In fact, the elder Inuarak had once spotted two polar bears together one very healthy and the other bear showing the same behaviour as in the video footage, said Niko by email.
Why don’t they feed it then?
If they go close enough, they could feed it a hand.
Maybe the polar bear spent his food stamps on alcohol and cigarettes...
Sam Kinison would agree.
A caribou or a moose is never allowed to get this skinny: Long before it gets close to starvation, a predator has usually turned them into a meal. But if a polar bear doesnt drown or get shot, its most likely going to end up looking like the bear in the photo.
Polar bears, they dont have natural enemies, so when they die, its of starvation, Steven Amstrup, chief scientist at Polar Bears International, said in 2015.
Good article. Last paragraph: “...when scientists conclude that Earth is warming or polar bears are in danger, they dont use anecdotal information. Rather, they base their forecasts on reams of data collected over years.”
This is naive. So many GW “scientists” have been caught cooking or outright falsifying data over the past 20 years, that the “reams of data collected over years” are simply not to be trusted.
Wildlife with old age, disease, broken teeth, parasites....
None of this ever happened until Trump was elected...that heartless bastard.
Article that “dirtboy” linked in #15 above makes the excellent point that polar bears are at the apex of the food chain. There simply is no other predator to take them down when they get old and infirm, so almost ALL of them wind up starving to death.
yes, the 0.01 degree change in world-wide temperature is killing everyone!!
Toss it some tofu, then.
yes, the bears are “often” the first to feel the global warming effects...
