Oh Brother… As Arctic Snow Melts – Polar Bears Are Forced to Eat Car Parts
After democrats passed their junk science “pile of sh*t” Cap and Trade legislation in June 2009 a scientific report was released, and suppressed, that showed that polar bear numbers, far from decreasing, were much higher than they were 30 years ago.
In fact, it’s about time for a cull.
Polar bear numbers in Canada have increased in 11 of 13 regions in recent years.
Polar bear numbers are increasing – not shrinking
But, that doesn’t stop the propagandists on the left and NBC to spread more lies to push their agenda. Now they’re suggesting that global warming is forcing polar bears to eat car parts.
NBC News reported”
Arctic polar bears may be adjusting their eating habits as their sea ice habitat melts and the furry white predators stand to lose the floating platform they depend on to hunt seals, their primary food. According to researchers, however, the bears are displaying flexible eating habits as their world changes around them.
Indeed, scientific studies indicate polar bear populations are falling as the sea ice disappears earlier each spring and forms later in the fall. But a series of papers based on analysis of polar bear poop released over the past several months indicate that at least some of the bears are finding food to eat when they come ashore, ranging from bird eggs and caribou to grass seeds and berries.
“What our results suggest is that polar bears have flexible foraging strategies,” Linda Gormezano, a biologist at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and a co-author of several of the papers, told NBC News…
… In addition to berries, birds and eggs, Andrew Derocher, a University of Alberta polar bear biologist who was not involved with the recent studies, said people have seen a polar bear drink hydraulic fluid as it was drained out of a forklift, chomp the seats of snow machines, and eat lead acid batteries.
