There's plenty of these to go around:

Well then, let the researchers do the feeding.

Polar bears should open cafes. Then we wouldn't have to support them AND we'd be amused by their puns.

How to play the "Global Warming Game"

Step 1: Make statements like this: "They hope to push the public and politicians to start making plans on how to sustain the declining polar bear population. By mid-century, the scientists say, the polar bear population could be just two-thirds what it is currently. "

Step 2: Ignore inconvenient facts like this:

Step 3: Profit!

vestona22: How to play the "Global Warming Game"

[williamsteaparty.com image 480x480]


The American left forgot about Al Gore a decade ago. The rest of the world never cared about Al Gore.

The endless hard-on that the denier community has for Al Gore is amazing. Is it hero worship because he has money??

But let's all keep pretending that the real money to be made is in polar bear kibble and not oil. "Nobody look at big-oil's record profits ... there's a scientist over there applying for a grant. That bastard! Get him!!!"

This dovetails nicely with the Death Panels; submit a name, and they get fed to the polar bears.

At some point don't you have to say an animal isn't worth saving? I mean I get that this has been done for brown bears & elk in some places but come on. Pandas are the worst example of this. Just let these majestic creatures farking die.

It's interesting that you get your facts from "Williams Tea Party".

Did you ever stop and consider that if there were an increase in polar bear population during that time that it was actually due to conservation efforts and not in spite of them?

Living things go extinct and the planet itself is ever-changing, including it's climate. However, it's not our job to exacerbate those things.

This.  It's like I'm watching a game in a sports bar and almost half the people are talking about how much they hate a guy who's been retired for over ten years.

Aren't polar bears mating with grizzly bears to created a hybrid of super-killer bears?

oldfarthenry: Aren't polar bears mating with grizzly bears to created a hybrid of super-killer bears?


I didn't realize this, but it appears that there are rare cases of this. However, I think it would actually downgrade how badass the polar bear is. On average, they're bigger and stronger than other types of bear...not quite as fast as a grizzly, but relatively close.

Yeah ... the polar bear already is the super-killer bear. A hybrid polar/grizzly would probably be less dangerous.

If God had wanted polar bears to survive, he should have designed them more Intelligently.

Only in the sense that getting hit by an F-150 truck at 40mph is "less" lethal than getting hit by an F-350 at 60mph.

Who said panic? In fact the article says the opposite ... they want to open the discussion now so we are not surprised if it becomes a real problem. This is how reasonable people address problems.

Unreasonable people, like deniers, post knee-jerk political rhetoric whenever a certain subject comes up.

Absolutely right.

But the Leftists here have a very difficult time time dealing with facts/truth/and reality.

Polar bear population is BOOMING and fear mongering can't change that.
 
2013-02-13 10:49:41 PM  
So, out of curiosity, is the graph showing an increase in the polar bear population correct?
 
2013-02-13 11:18:53 PM  
"Polar bears may require feeding of humans" means that the polar bears would insist that humans be fed.
