It is great irony that the global warmists who took away the livelyhood of the polar bear hunting guides in Nunavut by causing the animal to be listed as a threatened species and who are even now pushing for is further classification as an endangered species, should be shedding alligator tears for the suffering in Nunavut that they have caused (Staring at melting point, Bangkok Post, October 26, 2009) presenting the plight of Nunavut instead as being caused by global warming and using these people as pawns in a game to push their Copenhagen agenda. In fact, there is no evidence that the polar bear population is dwindling or that the species is threatened by global warming. The now famous Bambi-like photograph showing a polar bear on a small and fast-melting ice-floe that has been used effectively by the warmists to make their case that global warming was melting the ice cap in 2007, was in fact taken in 2004 at the height of the summer melt. The polar ice cap is a seasonal phenomenon with the summer ice cap being less than half its size in winter.
