Bearfaced lies


The myth of the desolate bear reveals two things about the politics of environmentalism: first, that it’s underpinned by a simplistic, anthropomorphic view of good vs evil, which most of us grew out of before we hit our teens; second, that it frequently bends the facts to fit the fable.
Brendan O’Neill: Bearfaced lies

The article pretty much says it all. I have nothing to add ;)

    Excellent post Missred. I find it hard to muster sympathy for an animal which has been around for many years and has lived through all kinds of global changes.

    Polar bears will survive, as they always have before.

    It would seem that the story told above and the one head Greenie Al tells are shall we say, polar opposites?

    One of Tennessee’s favorite sons (no not Al Gore) David (Davy) Crockett, who/whom died at The Alamo, once stated “Be always sure you are right, then go ahead“. Don’t think Al, subscribed to that saying.

    I tasted black bear once. It was gamey. Never had polar bear, but all I can think of when I think of roast polar bear is seal grease.


Well, SAY something...
