    Happy International Polar Bear Day! Thriving polar bear populations have exposed the hubris behind global warming’s most beloved icon. In 2005, international polar bear specialists decided that future sea ice loss due to human-caused global warming had replaced wanton over-hunting as the primary threat to polar bear survival. It was the first time that such future […]

    Another day, another ludicrous Greenland meltdown scare story. From “Science”:  From a helicopter clattering over Greenland’s interior on a bright July day, the ice sheet below tells a tale of disintegration. Long, roughly parallel cracks score the surface, formed by water and pressure; impossibly blue lakes of meltwater fill depressions; and veiny networks of azure […]

    Science is facing a “reproducibility crisis” where more than two-thirds of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce another scientist’s experiments, research suggests. This is frustrating clinicians and drug developers who want solid foundations of pre-clinical research to build upon. From his lab at the University of Virginia’s Centre for Open Science, immunologist Dr Tim […]

    • GWPF Briefing Paper

    Claims that the planet is threatened by man-made global warming are based on science that is based on inadequate computer modelling. That is the conclusion of a new briefing paper published today by the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF).

    • David Zaruk, The Risk-Monger

    BeeGate shows activists behaving badly —  lying, subverting and fear-mongering Almost ten years ago, when there were indications of stresses on honeybee populations (known as colony collapse disorder – CCD), different activists were jockeying for the right to claim this crisis for their campaigns. Climate activists wanted to show bees were suffering because of warmer weather; […]

  • It’s Official: Polar Bear Numbers Continue To Rise

    • Date: 16/02/17
    • Susan Crockford, Polar Bear Science

    New estimates for polar bears in Svalbard and Baffin Bay/Kane Basin are likely to increase the global estimate of polar bears to 23,000-33,000. The 2016 Scientific Working Group report on Baffin Bay and Kane Basin polar bears was released online without fanfare last week, confirming what local Inuit have been saying for years: contrary to the […]
