Watts Up With That notes that polar bear ice habitat is higher now than it was during the 1970s and 1980s. The news comes by way of Dr. Susan Crockford.

The Davis Strait polar bear subpopulation is said to be ‘vulnerable’ to the supposed effects of global warming because, like Hudson Bay, Davis Strait sea ice retreats every summer, leaving polar bears on land for several months.

However, Davis Strait bears have been upgraded to ‘stable’ status, according to the latest table (2013) issued by the IUCN Polar Bear Specialist Group (see their boundary map for Davis Strait bears below). Recent development of sea ice in the region can only improve that rating.

Now what’s John Kerry going to do with himself? Even as Russia reverts to its evil empire ways, the Syria civil war rolls on, Iran pursues nuclear weapons and Israel has come under yet another missile attack by terrorists, the Secretary of State declared that “climate change” will now be one of the State Department’s “top-tier diplomatic” priorities.

You should all be ashamed of yourselves for being happy about this. Yes, YOU! You awful conservatives, being happy about such a tragedy!

AGW is a beautiful, elegant theory, graceful and tender, like a young girl, pure and sparkling like snowflake. A work of high art! A creation of brilliant minds, of unfettered imagination! A thing to be admired, yea, even adored!

And now it's being mercilessly tormented and savaged and stomped into the muck by a ruthless, small-minded horde of ugly, implacable, stubborn FACTS, and YOU people sit there smirking about it! It writhes in pain, bloody and torn it falls to its death, and you have the gall to smile about it!


Oh, you're just HORRIBLE!

A big fan of PJMedia, I find myself reluctantly shaking my head. Mr. Preston's sources for this story on polar bears includes a conservative blog (wattsupwiththat.com), & Dr. Susan Crockford's own blog (polarbearscience.com). There is no mention of this story on the IUCN website, & no mention of it on NOAA's site either. Dr Crockford is evidently NOT a polar bear or ice expert, but a museum zoologist. She calls out some IUCN links (pbsg.npolar.no) but their "website" appears to be down. Even after searching the Canadian Ice Service website, I found nothing to confirm what Dr Crockford said.
I'm not claiming the story is fake, but if I tried to use THIS story & its citings as PROOF to discredit liberal global-warming doom-sayers, they'd laugh at me. I'd like to see the information in Mr. Preston's story corroborated by a government or commercial source, instead of only the statements of someone with whom I would tend to agree most of the time.

Thx,

To cheer the seals up, we could take them clubbing.
