Special agents from the Interior Department’s inspector general's office are questioning the two government scientists about the paper they wrote on drowned polar bears, suggesting mistakes were made in the math and as to how the bears actually died, and the department is eyeing another study currently underway on bear populations.

Polar Bears are among the most resourceful animals on the planet. National Georgraphic aired a program show Polar Bears swimming hundreds of miles, following a pack of walruses that were migrating to a distant island.  The Canadian Government issued a report showing estimates that the Polar Bear poulation was on the rise (increasing by 500%).  The Innuit Leadersstated that the Polar Bear population was on the rise.  So how can two government scientists get traction with a crazy story about polar bears drowning.  Why does the media promote such hogwash. 

Biologist Charles Monnett, the lead scientist on the paper, was placed on administrative leave July 18.  Fellow biologist Jeffrey Gleason, who also contributed to the study, is being questioned, but has not been suspended.

Every year, “scientists” whose financial grants seem to be dependent upon a contest of who can come up with the most outlandish claims emerge with more dire predictions.

 

You have the scientists who purportedly observed four polar bears floating dead, and two years later developed a theory that global warming was a threat to the polar bear population. His work led to polar bears being placed on the threatened list due to their survival being threatened by global warming.

Of course, the latest survey of the polar bear population shows that it is risen as much as 500 percent since the 1970s from an estimate of 5,000 total bears to 25,000 in 2010. A truth that was too inconvenient to be included in Al Gore’s Academy Award winning documentary which mentions the polar bear issue.

Climate scientists have warned that the polar ice caps were disappearing (which is the basis for the polar bear worry.)

 

 

Polar bears drowning in an Alaskan sea because the ice packs are melting—it’s the iconic image of the global warming debate.
 
But the validity of the science behind the image—presented as an ignoble testament to our environment in peril by Al Gore in his film An Inconvenient Truth—is now part of a federal investigation that has the environmental community on edge.
