Sometimes You Get the Bear...

It's official; flawed predictions of the future trump actual facts. The Polar Bear is listed as a threatened species because of "declining Arctic Ice." It doesn't matter that there are more bears now, 5 times more bears, than there were in 1950 (The eagle came OFF the list for going from 1,000 to 13,000 in the lower 48). It doesn't matter that the bears are still increasing in numbers over most of their range. It doesn't matter that the Inuit dispute the scientists in Canada who say the bears are declining in northern Manitoba. It doesn't matter that the number of bears are increasing in the areas of greatest warming. Facts, as I said, don't matter. My friend Hugh Hewitt has the story on the meaning of this.

The Arctic probably can't carry 50,000 bears. How in the world will we get North America's greatest predator off the list?

With the swallowing of the anthropogenic Global Warming bunk by McCain and this action by a Republican Administration, we see how much the pseudo- and actual false science has penetrated the minds of too many.

You win this one, Warmies. More's the pity.
UPDATE: Slight mitigation of this horror show here.
UPDATE II: Laer at Cheat Seeking Missiles, who fights on the front lines of needless government restriction of reasonable development (for humans), puts me back in a sour mood with his closer look here.
