East Svalbard I met this bear out on the pack ice just 800 miles from the North Pole. She was full of confidence and tried to climb straight aboard our 300-foot long ship (thankfully the sides were too high). Self assured she may be, but her future doesn’t look good…

    Yawn. Another NON scientific warmist attempt to evangelize….

    The pictures are wonderful though….

  • Too bad

    What a shame you weren’t around as the Ice Age (or the more recent Little Ice Age) ended. You could have rung the global warming alarms and ensured that nothing happened to change the Ice Age climate. Come to think of it, you would have been useful during the entire 4.5 billion years of Earth’s climate change history. What a shame, indeed.
