Polar Bears dig the global warming...

Walter Williams - How To Treat Global Warming HysteriaWalter Williams:
The bottom line is, serious efforts to reduce CO2 will lead to lower living standards through higher costs of living. And it will be all for naught because there is little or no relationship between man-made CO2 emissions and climate change.

There's an excellent booklet available from the National Center for Policy Analysis ( titled "A Global Warming Primer." Some of its highlights are:

"Over long periods of time, there is no close relationship between CO2 levels and temperature."

"Humans contribute approximately 3.4% of annual CO2 levels" compared with 96.6% by nature.

"There was an explosion of life forms 550 million years ago (Cambrian Period) when CO2 levels were 18 times higher than today. During the Jurassic Period, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, CO2 levels were as much as nine times higher than today."

What about public school teachers [not to mention Time magazine in the cover above] frightening little children with tales of cute polar bears dying because of global warming?

The primer says, "Polar bear numbers increased dramatically from around 5,000 in 1950 to as many as 25,000 today, higher than any time in the 20th century."

The primer gives detailed sources for all its findings, and it supplies us with information we can use to stop politicians and their environmental extremists from doing a rope-a-dope on us.
Here's a more specific example of a polar bear that digs the heat.

Why let the facts get in the way of some good fear-mongering though, eh?

Oh, and how about the Time cover from January, 1977:

Then and Now
