Skip to comments.Polar bear conservation group blasts Obama for climate alarmism: ‘Sensationalized nonsense’

The Obama administration warned Monday that polar bears may disappear unless something is done about climate change, despite recent research indicating that the bears are actually thriving.
In its final Conservation Management Plan, the Fish and Wildlife Service painted a grim picture for the future of the massive Arctic-dwelling mammal, warning that its fate will be determined by our willingness and ability to address climate change.
The current global polar bear population is estimated to be 26,000, said the FWS press release. If greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise at the current rates throughout the 21st century, polar bears will likely disappear from much of their present-day range.
The announcement prompted pushback from zoologist Susan J. Crockford, founder of the Polar Bear Science website, who blasted the service for igniting a rash of sensationalized nonsense by fueling alarmist media reports.
Since 2007, summer sea ice coverage has declined to levels their sea ice colleagues said would not occur until 2050 yet 2/3 of the worlds polar bears did not disappear as [U.S. Geological Service] biologists predicted, Ms. Crockford said in a post.

Telling Lies and making people believe in something that isn’t true for Profit or Gain used to be called FRAUD
Meanwhile a LIBERAL group puts the world polar bear population at 22,000 to 31,000 individuals.
I read an article the other day that stated that we really don’t know how many polar bears there are, their range is so huge, and includes Russian places that are off limits................
There might be 100k for all we know...................
Well, it seems from most estimates that the population is growing, not declining...
Great. It’s good that they are countering all the nonsense.
I just came across another alarmist article:
Without action on climate change, say goodbye to polar bears
Anyone ever see a polar bear in a Zoo in the summer with not a bit of ice in view??
Them Bears were happy as a Clam swimming in the cold water pool, just waiting for some Dem fool to jump in and pet them.... LUNCH!!!!
Now its called global warming awareness.
Nobody ever talks about the Polar Fox, just the damn bears.....................
If I was a seal, I’d be praying for fewer polar bears. Also fewer sharks.
Population is three times higher than when they first started counting in the Canadian north.
If you believe the climate folks will soon be sipping Cokes on the beaches of the Arctic islands, shortly before they perish from the heat.

Elsewhere, biologists previously cited admitted they didn’t actually have a good census for polar bears, but only provided numbers because they were demanded and they gave ‘something’. The census was incomplete, as it didn’t take into account seasonal migration or all of the several polar bear populations.
Likewise, in the great ‘polar bears are turning to canibalism because of climate change’ screeds...the cited author had years prior written of it as normal polar bear behavior.
Going back even further, the pictures of “stranded” polar bears floating on the remnants of icebergs failed to note that: polar bears can swim 50 miles; commonly climb on floating ice to rest or relax; or that the bears in question were within sight of land behind the photographer.
There not only might be over 100,000....but there probably are, and signs show the population is rapidly growing.
