Another example of how facts are being skewed to gain support for global warming. Dr Mitchell Taylor was barred from speaking at the Polar Bear Specialist Group's meeting in Copenhagen, which is one of several meetings before the big major conference on climate change in December. He was told that his message does not jive with what they want the public to hear.
Dr Mitchell Taylor has been researching the status and management of polar bears in Canada and around the Arctic Circle for 30 years, as both an academic and a government employee. More than once since 2006 he has made headlines by insisting that polar bear numbers, far from decreasing, are much higher than they were 30 years ago. Of the 19 different bear populations, almost all are increasing or at optimum levels, only two have for local reasons modestly declined.
