Scientists Admit Polar Bear Numbers Were Made Up To ‘Satisfy Public Demand’

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.”

Okay. Whoever it was that "demanded" in public, a bogus number showing polar bears dying by the millions needs to fess up. "...to satisfy public demand." WTH?

You don’t suppose that legions of “political” scientists are making up glowbull warming? They wouldn’t do that. Would they?

So what he is saying, is that they came to some sort of consensus.

Hmmmmmm. The equivalent of lying on your thesis, cheating on our finals, and plagiarism......

Seems to me like that’s plenty of reason nullify any degrees bestowed upon them.

We all know it’s not gonna happen, but it’s okay - they did it for a “good cause”. Even if the facts didn’t support their “the science is settled” arguments.

In a perfect world, these people would be lined up in front of a wall and offered one last cigarette (or a doobie as they’d likely prefer).

Excellent points! I know of a few academicians who are now “consultants” due to publishing false data or plagiarism.

Liberal “scientists” are not real scientists. They are nothing more than lackeys pushing the liberal agenda and making up or falsifying data to support their thesis. Liberals have corrupted every aspect of life that they have touched.

These people aren’t “scientists”...they are frauds and should be thrown out of their positions, shunned and exiled.

Last line: “All this glosses over what I think is a critical point: none of these ‘global population estimates’ (from 2001 onward) came anywhere close to being estimates of the actual world population size of polar bears (regardless of how scientifically inaccurate they might have been) — rather, they were estimates of only the subpopulations that Arctic biologists have tried to count,” she added.

More like a poorly qualified guess by poorly qualified "scientists" for unqualified reasons.

I think that was done in the Gifford Pinchot Nat’l forest in Washington State. They were trying to keep some logging from happening and the “biologist” took the hair samples from the endangered critter and “salted” a few sites to establish its habit/ranges...

It’s not important how the numbers were arrived, or where they came from, but the content that we must be emotionally attached to. </s> {a play off of Dan Rather}

“Scientists Admit Polar Bear Numbers Were Made Up To ‘Satisfy Public Demand’”...........

It isn’t only polar bear numbers that are bogus, just about every report the current administration pushes forward are bogus. Doe anyone trust them?

The polar bears are in southern Ontario and mainland Norway. That’s where to find them and count them.

Should think public demand would be for the truth,but maybe that depends on which “public” you are.

Science is so modernized.

Global warming would have been
much worse, if there had not
been so much cool weather.

Health care improvement would
have been much greater, if only
so many people had not died.

This kind of logic, is what
passes for Science today.

Isn't that the same kind of consensus that several hundred years ago said the sun revolved around the earth?

Well, at least those who believed that could point out that it looks that way. After all, you don't feel the Earth moving, do you, and the sun obviously moves. Who are you going to believe, Galileo or your own eyes?
