Skip to comments.Scientists Admit Polar Bear Numbers Were Made Up To ‘Satisfy Public Demand’

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.
PBSG has for years said that global polar bear populations were between 20,000 and 25,000, but these estimates are likely much lower than how many polar bears are actually living in the world.
Based on previous PBSG estimates and other research reports, it appears there are probably at least another 6,000 or so bears living in these regions and perhaps as many as 9,000 (or more) that are not included in any PBSG global population estimate, Crockford wrote on her blog.

Leftists have politicized EVERYTHING. And at every turn, the end justifies the means. Lie, cheat, steal? No problem if it advances ‘Progressive Ideology’. Appalling.
Any Word yet to this from Al Bore er.. Gore?
Indeed! The world has a fever and the only solution is more cowbell! Or bovine backpack fart mitigation devices! Or something! For the Children!
Won’t anyone do something for THE CHILDREN????
Were you lying then or are you lying now?
It’s frustrating to see how these extremists manipulate children’s emotions about polar bears and other wildlife, to get kids at a young age to believe in global warming.
Somebody committed fraud.
Stealing the only good line from a very stupid movie,
Welcome to a Marxist world, where science is whatever you want it to be to advance your political goals........
Dems, their media & educational spokespeople have now adopted this as resolute policy.
As in Public Broadcasting System & fellow travelers
Public demand for WHAT?
Khrushchev said it plainly “We won’t get you but we will get your children”. Those children he got v via communist takeover of the schools now teach other children in schools and colleges themselves.
And college today is very much filled with ‘children’ Their intellectual growth has been intentionally held at child level so as to be easier to manipulate.
Alinsky directed this over and over in his writings. The goal is always POWER and do whatever is necessary to get it. Go along, appear moderate take popular positions but always with the goal of gaining more POWER! You see it every day in these people. BTW Hillary was and is a devout follower of Alinsky. If she gets elected it will be Obama's regime on steroids!
