Several years ago, we were warned that bears were starving due to global warming and would be irretrievably lost.
I recall the first interview I did with Alaska’s then-governor, Sarah Palin, about the polar bear situation in 2008, before she got famous. I asked her if the news reports were right that polar bears were starving. I only have a reference to the link, unfortunately, but I vividly recall her most memorable quote: “Our bears are healthy bears!”
She added that maybe that could be the situation in Canada, but it certainly wasn’t in Alaska.
Now ABC News and NBC News are reporting that bears are flooding Alaska’s villages, supposedly because of the loss of their ice floe habitat. The Washington Post is bringing them up as an argument against the GOP tax cut bill.
Problematically to the claim about the missing ice floes (unlikely now that it’s winter), the photos prominently feature obese bears who clearly haven’t fled any sort of famine.
Fact is, not only are the Alaska natives seeing too many bears proliferating, but so are the scientists who study them. Professor Susan Crockford of the University of Victory has observed the proliferation of bears, and far from saying they are endangered, she concludes they “are not at risk,” which, of course, got her attacked by ideological leftists and those for whom global warming is a religion.
Terence Corcoran of Canada’s Financial Post notes that this bear issue and the left’s shifting story on it is a magic talking point for global warmers, who go after anyone who deviates from their party line:
