If experts had been right about sea ice, there would be no polar bears in Churchill

While BBC viewers in their TV bubble sit by the fireside grieving about the plight of those ‘poor polar bears’ (or similar emotive words)…in the real world it’s a different story altogether.


The simple fact is that if polar bear experts had been right about the threat to polar bears from the loss of summer sea ice in the Arctic, there would be no polar bears in Churchill this fall. No bears for tourists to photograph, none for biologists to study, and certainly none for the BBC to film for an upcoming three-part TV special called “Arctic Live.

polar-bear-stock-image-gg66298544_smThe low-ice future that biologists said would doom polar bears to extinction by 2050 has already happened in 8 out of the last 10 years. The sea ice future has been realized.

Polar bears have experienced those supposedly deadly low-ice summers for almost a decade but the global population did not drop by 2/3 as predicted and not a single one of the ten subpopulations predicted to be extirpated under those conditions has been wiped out.

How much more wrong can you…

    Will the BBC tell its viewers any of this?

    July 2016: This has without a doubt been Churchill Wild’s most spectacular start to the summer polar bear watching season. …Bear numbers are up spectacularly this year and all are looking very fat and healthy, perhaps much to the chagrin of climate change “experts.”


    From the main post: ‘the latest estimate of 22,000-31,000 polar bears worldwide (IUCN Red List, 2015) is the highest it’s ever been.’

    Ask “Professor Peter Wadhams.

    Or ask a polar bear, they seem to know what’s going on in the Arctic.

    Canada military probes mysterious Arctic pinging noise

    Various explanations for the sound have been put forward by the Canadian press:
    It is a sonar survey conducted by a mining company
    It is being generated on purpose by Greenpeace to scare wildlife away from the rich hunting ground
    It is caused by military submarines

    However, local mining companies insist they do not work in the area, Greenpeace has denied it is responsible and the military say no submarines – either domestic or foreign – are known to have operated in the area.

    “The cause of the pings remains mired in mystery,” the defence spokesman said.

  5. “Experts” rely on “climate models” generated by mathematicians and computer programmers.
    Paleo-climates seem most likely to have been ignored.
    And, they got it wrong.
    Are you at all surprised?

  6. oldbrew says:

    Rod: no, not at all. The surprise would be if they got it anywhere near right.

  7. That would make 2 of us
