The truth about Polar Bears


We see many falsehoods and myths when we talk about Polar Bears that we see in the arctic, and many of the falsehoods and myths are perpetuated by the ignorant and downright liars called warmegedisnests and doomotoligests to somehow try to explain their dogma on global warming and to try to scare the population into thinking about something that they have never showed any proof of.

 

After all what better way to tug at most people heart strings than to advertise the fact even though it’s not true that these magnificent white beasts are fast becoming extinct and if we don’t stop using oil and fossil fuels the arctic seas that ice over and sustain these beasts will be gone. And then were will these beasts get there food from.

 

Did you notice two key words in the last paragraph? Oil and fossil because it is those two words that are feeding these lies and ignorance. And there were you thinking it was all about climate change or global warming well I am sorry to burst people bubbles but climate change or even global warming are the last thing on these activists minds it a convenient tool to beat the drum about how they would like the demise of oil.

 

So when you next see and comment on an article about Polar Bears and someone is banging on about these poor beasts becoming extinct remember these words I am about to write.

 

First, the population of polar bears, all Polar Bears live in and around the Arctic in the countries of America, Canada, Russia, Denmark, and Norway, Greenland of course belongs to Denmark all country’s except Canada have a no hunting ban on these bears and at the moment its estimated that between 25,000 and 40,000 exist

 

The Polar Bear finds its main food when the ice in the arctic freezes over and that food is ringed and bearded seals. They will they also eat harp and hooded seals and they are great at scavenging and will never turn their nose up at a free meal of carcasses of beluga whales, walruses, narwhals, and bowhead whales that die naturally and wash up on the shores of countries where they are hunting.

 

They will also not turn their noses up at young walruses and will often try to kill beluga whales when they come up for air in the many spots in the ice where there are holes.

 

The Polar Bear is a great swimmer it will swim for miles to get to its prey and it can swim at 6 mph while when it walks it only walks at 3.5 mph they also rest on ice floes when out in open water.

We are often told that it’s not natural for a Polar bear to swim mile after mile nothing could be further from the truth, the Polar Bear has always swam mile after mile to get to its prey and it will carry its young on its back while doing so.

 

 

Many wildlife programs show Polar Bears sitting and waiting for the ice to form and while it is true that the ice has been forming later than usual in the last few years due to nothing more than a natural cycle that has happened 500 hundred years or more, records can show from the Logs of shipping in that area that it has been free from ice on many occasions it does not mean that the Polar Bear is starving as it will eat just like its cousins the Brown and Grizzly Bear just about anything and it will eat any animal they can get, including reindeer, small rodents, seabirds, waterfowl, fish, eggs, vegetation (including kelp), berries.

 

A polar bear’s stomach can hold an estimated 15% to 20% of its body weight. A polar bear generally eats this much only when its energy demands are high. A bear can assimilate 84% of the protein and 97% of the fat it eats. Polar bears need an average of 2 kg (4.4 lb.) of fat per day to obtain enough energy to survive. A ringed seal weighing 55 kg (121 lb.) can provide up to eight days of energy for a polar bear.

 

One more fact that is not generally known is that the Polar Bear often does not eat all of its prey. Does that sound like an animal that is in decline?

 

Another fact is that hunting and not climate change has been the greatest known cause of polar bear mortality. In Canada 500 to 600, Polar bears a year are hunted and killed. Licenses are given to the Inuit who then sell those licenses to mostly American hunters; a stipulation is that the hunter is guided by an Inuit and only one bear per hunter is killed. Money is the main motive with $25,000-$30,000 changing hands.

 

Considering all things, what the warmegedisnests are telling everyone does not hold water. We are told by them that its climate change that is making the Polar Bear extinct, nothing could be further from the truth far from becoming an extinct species they are thriving.

 

That is not to say that we should be complacent in the 1950 there was no ban on hunting and it was in this period that we actually saw the demise of the Polar Bear, Hunters began to hunt them in earnest using snowmobiles, aircraft, and boats and an international agreement saw countries banning the hunting of Polar Bears in 1973.

 

Since then despite what the Warmageddonist tell you the population is slowly growing and will continue to grow as long as man does not kill them by hunting them to the point extinction like they did to the Bison and to the point like they did in the 50s and 60s

 

In the 50s as little as 5,000 Polar Bears existed, between 1965 to 1970 they had grown to 8,000, to 10,000. In 1985 when global warming was supposedly at its worst they had grown to 25,000 and since 2005 we now see a population of between 25,000 to 40,000. Does it sound to you that climate change like these activists are saying is the demise of the Polar Bear?

 

 

Remember that when a Warmageddonist speaks or writes they bend the truth to suit whatever motive they have, they lie through their back teeth and then accuse the ones that tell the truth of lying. They are activists who would see your way of life demise quite fast if given half a chance. And by doing that they deny the true science that never stands still. They are the true deniers in our society.
