The greatest scientific fraud in history is slowly but surely unraveling, and the breadth of the corruption revealed is stunning. As any good con man knows, and emotional appeal is necessary, and the warmists found their cuddly-looking icon of endangerment in the polar bear, an animal frequently chosen as stuffed toys for children to hug. Pictures of polar bears on ice floes, presumably doomed to death by drowning as the Arctic ice disappeared, were used to tug on the heartstrings of adults and children alike, in order to scare them into willingly handing over power over their economic destiny to global mandarins who would reduce their standard of living.

Stories like this does not help anyone's cause... Fraud has been used since the inception of global warming/climate change/climate disruption or whatever and in some ways it has even increased from what I have read.. Either way it will not make a difference because many already have their minds made up..


“A guess to satisfy public demand” but wrapped in the prestige of settled science.

And on this basis, small children have gone to bed weeping, hugging their stuffed teddy bears, worried sick about the doom facing these cuddly animals.

There is so much fraud in the warmist movement that a reckoning must be had, or else we will lose scientific progress, the very engine that has brought us our standard of living. Corruption left untouched multiplies.

50% of all statistics are made up! at least half the time.
I got that from a reliable source. Ny brothers friend said he saw it on the internet.
Lol

I agree and believe that some "stats" are falsified to further ones agenda. I actually did a thread about polar bear populations, and they are actually stable, and doing well.

if you wish to read that article, here it is.

An inconvenient truth: More polar bears alive today than 40 years ago

This should not be a surprise since money to pay a researcher's salary is involved.

Do these studies specifically state living polar bears? If the population is in danger then more children may want a stuffed, toy polar bear which spurs manufacture of bears and then raises the population. Without the warming fear to make them popular less bears might be built and kept so the population actually goes down.

Sounds crazy but it is probably as accurate as these studies.

Yes I saw your thread and I think I even stared it.. Someday we can take our stars and flags (and $10) and buy each other a cup of coffee.. I wonder if this will be covered on MSM? Nah no wonder here.

Yeah, I was kind of amazed that it didn't garner much attention at the time, I hope your thread can gain more traction, because when I read that article from before, I was pretty angry at the lies being told, but I guess others weren't quite there yet.

You and I know that the MSM won't cover this, because it's an inconvenient truth lol.

Should read "STATISTICS SHOW" that 50% of all statistics are made up at least 50% of the time...

It's interesting that your numbers are the same as the ones in the OP.


From the OP's article:



Since 2005, this range has been 20-25,000.


And from yours:



According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, there are an estimated 20,000 to 25,000 polar bears worldwide


So, one is an educated guess and the other is an estimate. But they're both the same... One meant to prove they are endangered and the other meant to prove that they are abundant.

I wonder... is this number an overestimate or an underestimate... I don't think either thread proves anything at all.

You are right, perhaps neither thread will actually prove what is true and what is false. Maybe we should form an ATS research team and go study polar bears since we can't trust anybody to give us a straight answer?

You go ahead. I'm going to trust the "educated guesses" of the people who have been studying this issue for more years than I have been alive (and I'm OLD!)

How come all of a sudden Polar bears are not endangered? Could it be anything to do with oil?

Places such as Bear Island are protected wildlife sanctuary, but there is oil there and Statoil has just been granted license to drill for it. Greenpeace has just been kicked off the rig they were occupying in protest. Statoil is drilling 175k from Bear Island, and fears are that an oil disaster could reach the Island in less than a week and destroy a protected habitat and the wildlife on it.

IMO, by getting so-called 'experts' to say that the endangered Polar species are not endangered, they hope to remove concerns for endangered wildlife so they can be free to drill holes all over it and pollute it. And governments are helping them do it.
news.yahoo.com...

Endangered species, their protected habitats, and environments, will not stand in the way of big oil profits. It's criminal.

The killer line is about the big money vote for the research. It's just like one scientist who walked away from the IPCC years ago. He said, " you could get money for squirrel research, as long as how climate change is affecting the squirrel habitat was included". That's Governments stealing our money, and using it to work against us. Good catch BTW.

Dr Dag Vongraven - Norwegian Polar Institute, is definitely the chair, and senior advisor of that group, which is where the polar bear information is coming from. He is the guy that's doing all the talking.

Derp




Last week (May 22), I received an unsolicited email from Dr. Dag Vongraven, the current chairman of the IUCN [International Union for the Conservation of Nature – TL] Polar Bear Specialist Group (PBSG). The email from Vongraven began this way: “Dr. Crockford Below you’ll find a footnote that will accompany a total polar bear population size range in the circumpolar polar bear action plan that we are currently drafting together with the Parties to the 1973 Agreement. This might keep you blogging for a day or two.” [my bold]

“As part of past status reports, the PBSG has traditionally estimated a range for the total number of polar bears in the circumpolar Arctic. Since 2005, this range has been 20-25,000. It is important to realize that this range never has been an estimate of total abundance in a scientific sense, but simply a qualified guess given to satisfy public demand. It is also important to note that even though we have scientifically valid estimates for a majority of the subpopulations, some are dated. Furthermore, there are no abundance estimates for the Arctic Basin, East Greenland, and the Russian subpopulations.Consequently, there is either no, or only rudimentary, knowledge to support guesses about the possible abundance of polar bears in approximately half the areas they occupy. Thus, the range given for total global population should be viewed with great caution as it cannot be used to assess population trend over the long term.” [my bold]

Somebody told you they were? That claim hasn't come from any wildlife scientists.
However, it is feared that global warming will eventually threaten their existence. They aren't "dying out" yet.

The estimated polar bear population is not being used to show they are "dying out". The premise of this thread makes no sense. How does trying to produce an estimate constitute fraud?
