"(..) one of the world's leading experts on polar bears has been told to stay away from this week's meeting, specifically because his views on global warming do not accord with those of the rest of the group."
Det er jo ikke vanskelig å si man har konsensus når de med andre meninger konsekvent blir nektet adgang eller stemplet som klimabøller.
"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.
Dr Taylor agrees that the Arctic has been warming over the last 30 years. But he ascribes this not to rising levels of CO2 – as is dictated by the computer models of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and believed by his PBSG colleagues – but to currents bringing warm water into the Arctic from the Pacific and the effect of winds blowing in from the Bering Sea."
Det mye brukte bildet av de to isbjørnene som klamrer seg til toppen av et lite isberg viser seg for øvrig å være misvisende:
"(..) the photographer, Amanda Byrd, revealed that the bears, just off the Alaska coast, were in no danger. Her picture had nothing to do with global warming and was only taken because the wind-sculpted ice they were standing on made such a striking image."Dissenser og annerledes tenkende blir avvist som bøller og "ikke-hjelpsomme". Høres ut som forskning, spør du meg...
