    Erica Goode, April 10, 2018 (NY Times)

    “…[P]olar bears have long been poster animals for climate change…[but now] climate denialists are turning the charismatic bears to their own uses…The scientific evidence that the polar bear’s Arctic home is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet is overwhelming…In some Arctic regions, scientists have documented declines in polar bear numbers and disturbing signs of physical deterioration linked to the loss of sea ice…[But climate denialists argue predictions about devastating declines in polar bear populations] have failed to materialize…[In the peer-reviewed journal BioScience], 14 prominent researchers argue that denialist blogs with wide followings are using the bears to spread misinformation [based on discredited and out-of-date research] about the causes and consequences of climate change…

    …[Polar Bear Science, a blog run by Susan J. Crockford, a Canadian zoologist, is identified] as a primary source of dubious information about the status of polar bears…Of the 19 polar bear subpopulations in the Arctic Circle, three have shown substantial declines, including bears in the South Beaufort Sea off Alaska’s coast and in West Hudson Bay in Canada. One subpopulation has increased in numbers, and scientists know little or nothing about nine of the others, which are either in Russian territory or in locations so remote that resources are not available for surveys…” click here for more
