The link between a warmer world and polar bear welfare is very direct—more direct than probably for any other species. Their habitat is literally melting.
...[Q] Do you miss the arctic at all?
Well, I hate being cold! But I really do miss the Arctic. The past two years, I haven’t gotten to go up North. It can be a horrible place in terms of comfort level, but on a clear day, when the sun is shining, and the sea is blue, it’s just fantastic.
Yes, this is Salem circa 1692. Sanity has gone for one of its periodic naps. The agenda is being driven by people who are so hysterical, so terrified, they can’t even begin to conceptualise how ridiculous and dangerous they’ve become. They’ve entered that glassy, Sargasso Sea of the human psyche where thought is stopped by conviction. There they are, the latest in a long, snaking trail of mad men, lost in hubris, vainly asserting the newest, ultimate, tragically ridiculous and always finally defeated “truth, ” prepared to do almost anything to defend it.
What Moon is calling for is growth through shrinkage.
To tell us how all this is supposed to work, 25,000 people are flying in on jet-fuel guzzling jumbo jets, staying in air-conditioned hotels, and indulging in a days-long bash of food and drink consumption - all on the taxpayer’s dime. No shrinkage here.
Complete BS. The fires this year have not been large compared to those from a century ago. The 1910 Montana/Idaho fire was almost 100 times larger than the big fire currently burning in Colorado.
As far as frequency goes, the National Interagency Fire Center reports that fire frequency is down 70% since the 1970s.
