News Photo: Polar bears stand in one place for months while the ice breaks off and melts underneath them.
I may as well point out the continuing FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) campaign:
Global warming sees polar bears stranded on melting iceExcept that they're not stranded. Except for the fact that they swam out there to hunt. They climbed up there to scan for prey. And when they're done, they'll swim back. Except for that, they're the "perfect symbol of the tragedy of global warming."
They cling precariously to the top of what is left of the ice floe, their fragile grip the perfect symbol of the tragedy of global warming.....
And they are. They're the symbol of zealots who will say anything to advance their cause. And the tragedy is that if there is a problem with CO2 in the atmosphere, many of us will miss the proof when it does come, simply because it'll be buried under this mountain of lies, half-truths, and manbearpigs.
