20 Reasons To Be Cheerful On International Polar Bear Day 2015

polar familyOn International Polar Bear Day 2015, a new briefing paper by Susan Crockford reveals that behind the alarmist claims of environmentalists lies a conservation success story.

Today is International Polar Bear Day 2015 and environmentalists will be marking the occasion with petitions, calls to action and alarmist claims about the threat to the very existence of these iconic animals.

However, in a new briefing paper published by the Global Warming Policy Foundation, zoologist Dr Susan Crockford reveals that the long-term recovery of polar bear populations continues apace. In fact, the most recent official assessment did not identify any polar bear sub-populations that could be definitively said to be declining. Where data are sufficient to make at least a tentative assessment, populations are mostly stable or rising.

Dr Crockford said: “On almost every measure, things are looking good for polar bears. Scientists are finding that they are well distributed throughout their range and adapting well to changes in sea ice. Health indicators are good and they are benefiting from abundant prey. It really is time for the doom and gloom about polar bears to stop.”

    To Hell with the polar bears! [b]I[/b] am becoming extinct!

    [i]”Blondes may have more fun, but they’re not going to have it for too much longer.

    A new study by German researchers claims that people with blonde hair comprise an endangered species that will become extinct by 2202.”[/i]


    Blondes need our natural habitat. Crime free areas, with plenty of fresh air and beer. As urbanization spreads, and multiculturalism becomes the rule, my kind will eventually be killed off through violence and loss of habitat.

    Please send money today, and stop another endangered species from becoming extinct.
