Global warming doesn’t exist anywhere but the enfeebled imaginations and fudged numbers of socialist fanatics, but the heat is definitely on Disney after initially rebuffing a request by the Obama Administration to use the “Frozen” franchise to propagandize children.
Administration “special representative for the Arctic” Robert Papp said, “We’re regrouping on our story line and we still have Disney engaged, but there’s more yet to come there.”
The snow czar is apparently confused by the cold shoulder he received from Disney when he approached the studio about using characters from the hit movie “Frozen” to discuss the “plight” of the polar bear.
Polar bears are an interesting story. Ever since Al Gore used them as props in his ridiculous movie “An Inconvenient Truth,” the world has been under the impression that polar bears are drowning left and right because there’s not enough ice for them to stand on in the Arctic. The federal government has even declared them a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.
The bears have become the de facto mascot of the warming movement. It’s not entirely inappropriate because in many ways they do symbolize the fraud, government lies, propaganda and phony science fueling the global warming movement.
Polar bears are not endangered by global warming. For starters, the sea ice in the Arctic has not only not disappeared but has been growing in recent years. By the numbers, most local polar bear populations are growing, to the point where some of them are becoming public nuisances to nearby communities.
Then there’s this whole concept of polar bears drowning out there in the ocean. They don’t, as a rule. The entire notion that the bears are being killed by global warming comes from an animation in Gore’s movie and one study by a group of government scientists that found four bear carcasses floating in the ocean, an event the scientists claimed was unprecedented at the time.
The report spurred on the warming movement, but the reality is that those polar bears were found within a few days after an unusually violent sea storm in the area. The same flyover noted several other bears swimming happily several kilometers from land.
That’s the norm for polar bears. They love swimming, so much so that they are classified by scientists as marine mammals, unlike other bears.
Since that 2005 report, you’d be hard pressed to find any mentions of drowned polar bears because there just aren’t any. The scientist who led the team that filed the report, Charles Monnett, was eventually forced to retire and lost his job counting polar bears in an investigation by the Interior Department of allegations that he leaked government memos to try to block oil contracts and used false data in an article on polar bears.
Still, that hasn’t stopped the use of cute, cuddly polar bears to sell the warming agenda.
Speaking at an Arctic conference in Norway, Papp explained his approach to Disney, saying, “I said, ‘You’ve taught an entire generation about the Arctic. Unfortunately the Arctic that you’ve taught them about is a fantasy kingdom in Norway, where everything is nice.’
“And I said what we really need to do is educate the American youth about the plight of the polar bear, about the thawing tundra, about Alaskan villages that run the risk of falling into the sea because of the lack of sea ice protecting their shores.”
… Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together … mass hysteria!
Sorry. I started channeling Dr. Peter Venkman for a moment.
Can’t imagine why a movie studio wouldn’t want to risk all the good will and affection thrown at it by children just to satisfy some greedy government agenda.
As flying monkeys always do, however, the government agents will no doubt return to Disney at a later date.
Like the ice queen from “Frozen,” the cold never bothers the feds anyway.
