Skip to comments.EDITORIAL: Hurray for polar bears--Growing population negates climate-change hysteria
Posted on 08/23/2009 11:04:04 AM PDT by jazusamo
It's a good time to be a polar bear. Unusually cool temperatures in the northern climes last winter produced thicker-than-usual polar ice. This gave the lucky bears an extra two weeks to roam the ice floes to hunt ringed seals. As a result, adult bears are better fed and more cubs are surviving their first year. The bears will go into the winter with greater energy stores, which will mean a better chance of survival and even more cubs.
The global-warming religion is highly resistant to facts. This came home to us recently when Sen. Debbie Stabenow, Michigan Democrat, told the Detroit News that global warming is increasing "volatility" in the atmosphere. "I feel it when I'm flying," she claimed. "We are paying the price in more hurricanes and tornadoes." The notion that Mrs. Stabenow can sense climate volatility while jetting about is risible, but the fact that she serves on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and is a leading proponent of the job-killing, growth-destroying cap-and-trade legislation is no laughing matter.
Compare the senator's sensory perception to hard data. In the past three years, the number of hurricanes has fallen dramatically, and tropical-cyclone activity is at one of the lowest points in the last 50 years. We hope that facts such as thickening Arctic ice and decreasing climate volatility can overcome the almost mystical attachment some politicians have to global-warming orthodoxy.

No! Say it isn’t true!
"Um, could you guys shut up about that? Some of us had wanted to star in Al Gore's next movie. You're screwing with our gigs here."
Hah! Not only that but being on the endangered species list would be security for them.
She'll claim it's a great victory for AGW.
(Clue, Stabenow is mad)
Higher than a kite, I suspect.
I believe you’re both right.
So, Stabenow drinks heavily when she flies.
“Sen. Debbie Stabenow, Michigan Democrat, told the Detroit News that global warming is increasing “volatility” in the atmosphere. “I feel it when I’m flying,” she claimed.”
The stupidity of these people is astounding.
What do polar bears get when they sit in one place too long?? Polariods! Tee hee hee ....
This information will never make the MSM. And if it did no one on the left would believe it.
Official government measurements show that the world's temperature has cooled a bit since reaching its most recent peak in 1998.
That's given global warming skeptics new ammunition to attack the prevailing theory of climate change. The skeptics argue that the current stretch of slightly cooler temperatures means that costly measures to limit carbon dioxide emissions are ill-founded and unnecessary.
...Others go further. For example, Don Easterbrook, a geologist at Western Washington University in Bellingham, thinks the world is in a 30-year cooling phase.
I guess Debbie doesn’t remember the “Great Outbreak” of 1974 when 149 tornadoes swept through the Midwest. Killed a lot of people, let alone the billions in damages.
Thanks for the link.
The warming fanatics won’t give up even when confronted with reality, they seem to always come up with excuses.
Those supposed scientists, enviro nuts and leftist politicians are bound and determined to not only mandate us spending billions to try to combat a false premise but mainly to have more control over us all.
Maybe she wants to become a cougar after this regime is out of office.
So, Stabenow drinks heavily when she flies.
It's probably menopause, but this gives her another excuse.
Devastating hurricanes are good, because they promote jobs and urban renewal; increase the 'dependency' population; create an exploitable crisis and increased opportunities for graft; and reduce the chances for unregulated public potlatch ceremonies.
She might be (or be related to) a SP4 that worked for me in Korea..... silly bitch told the IG she could “hear” what I was thinking about her. Scary part was how accurate she was....
Debbie and her ilk conveniently forget those kind of facts when it doesn’t fit their agenda, it’s really frustrating that many don’t see these people for what they are.
LOL! A real head case. Sounds like she knew what you thinking because it was true that she was a head case and knew it.
What a person has to realize is that global warming is much like heath care,it isn’t about global warming, it is about controlling the populace and stealing money from the taxpayer.
Don’t confuse me with facts, my mind is made up!!
What's dba Obama got his thermostat set at in the multimillion-dollar castle on Martha's Vineyard.
You've got THAT right!
But he IS still an elitist / statist / hypocrite!!!
- - - - -
The article indicates the educational and intelligence level of some (if not most) of our elected representatives.
And she's a Senator??? Forget the citizenship requirement, there needs to be a minimum IQ and Knowledge requirement to be a Senator. Poor lil' Debbie is an imbecile.
Good ‘toon’ Meek, that’s just how HE lives!
Both your toons are good ones and most appropriate, Gore is a real hypocrite.
Thank you jazusamo.
Dat’s algore alrighty !!!
Sometimes the old blind hog finds an acorn now and then.
but but buttt...
what about those poor ringed seals that got eaten by all those big nasty polar bears????
What do polar bears get when they sit in one place too long?? Polaroids! Tee hee hee ....
Squirrels = Rat cousins!
Acorns ... it’s what’s for dinner! :)
Those (#*&^$%$% polar bears are nothing but paid shills for big oil. It’s so obvious, only a fundamentalist Republican nutbag could miss it. Every one of them, I’ll bet, has a big fat bank account and consultancy agreement with Royal Dutch Petroleum and Exxon with the proceeds deposited in some offshore bank. Their nondisclosure agreements are ironclad, that’s why none of them will talk. Every Thursday, Sarah Palin threatens their children with Down’s syndrome by waving Trig out of a helicopter on fly-bys paid for by Conoco executives who hate government health care and then the polar bear cubs won’t be able to use any of the library books Palin’s already pulled from the shelves from her little base of operations in Wasilla.
If it were only that simple. :-)
In Debbie’s case I tend to think it’s not necessarily her agenda, I think she’s stupid, and buys the agenda that others cook up.
But hey, I’m not arguing with you.
Oh, and by the way, the Congress Critter Stupak spoke at my grandson’s HS graduation, and he sure didn’t impress me as being the liveliest gerbil in the litter.
Meant to include you in my post 41, but, talk about stupid, I couldn’t remember how to spell your name.
Can anyone draw well enough to draw a Coca Cola ad showing a couple of cute polar bears clinging for dear life onto a floating Coke bottle?
Not a chance in hell a Marxist looter like Stabenow will ever get over that attachment. Even if this AWG scam blows up in their face, they will not blush for a moment. They will quickly move to the next scam. They never give up!
“what about those poor ringed seals that got eaten by all those big nasty polar bears????”
I’ve said for awhile now that the seals need better press agents!
