This may come as a shocker to some, but scientists are not always right especially when under intense public pressure for answers.
Researchers with the IUCN Polar Bear Specialist Group (PBSG) recently admitted to experienced zoologist and polar bear specialist Susan Crockford that the estimate given for the total number of polar bars in the Arctic was simply a qualified guess given to satisfy public demand.
Crockford has been critical of official polar bear population estimates because they fail to include five large subpopulations of polar bears. Due to the uncertainty of the populations in these areas, PBSG did not include them in their official estimate but the polar bear group did include other subpopulation estimates.

They admit it was a guess pulled out of their butts, but they try to defend it still by saying it was a “qualified” guess.
Any other field, and they’d be laughed out of a job.
Polar Bears almost went extinct....
IN THE 1950s....
Their numbers are actually HIGHER NOW than before we started hunting them in the early 1900’s....
Polar Bear population recovery is an example of resounding success in species that were nearly killed off. In fact it was more successful than the Buffalo in sheer numbers ALONE!!!
Can I give pollution made up estimates for my new car tire fueled power plant? As long as my bogus data about how squeaky clean it is makes the people who want the plant happy it is all good in the hood with the EPA...... Right???????
so they could lie to ,mislead etc etc etc the stupid public ?
We knew it!
That sure is some satisfying polar bear data. Is there a menthol version?
Seriously, lots of people need to go to jail for this scam.
