The Polar Bear
The world has grieved over a video (screen grab below) of an obviously suffering polar bear.
Some are, unfortunately, attributing the condition of the polar bear to global warming.
However, it is likely global warming is not the cause of that polar bear's unfortunate condition. Below is a portion of a series of tweets from Dr. Jeff Higdon, a wildlife biologist. While he believes human-caused global warming is a serious issue, he emphatically believes that is not an issue with this polar bear.
It is a shame that atmospheric science has been corrupted by the impulse to make everything about global warming.
