The high priests of climate change are furious over a new Canadian government report saying that the polar bear population is booming and is endangering the native Inuit peoples living in the great white north.
The new study finds that the polar bear population has grown so much that they are now competing with the native Inuit people living in the area.
But the report runs contrary to what envirowackos continue to say over and over again. Enviros continue to claim that the polar bears are dying out because of global warming. So, this report is infuriating pushers of climate change.
But according to the Daily Mail:
“Inuit believe there are now so many bears that public safety has become a major concern,” the proposed plan, which has been seen by the Canadian websiteWindsor Star, claims.
“Public safety concerns, combined with the effects of polar bears on other species, suggest that in many Nunavut communities, the polar bear may have exceeded the co-existence threshold.”
The report also says that even though polar bears are probably affected by climate change, the animals are adaptable and will not necessarily die out because of climate change.
But global warmingists are insisting that the report is wrong.
Indeed, one “expert” believes that the polar bears are starting to impinge on the Inuit people’s domain because the bears are desperate.
“They will move into communities seeking food,” said Andrew Derocher, a University of Alberta polar bear expert.
Polar bears are not warm and cuddly, though:
The report comes just months after Canadian man was killed by a polar bear while trying to protect his children.
Aaron Gibbons, 31, was visiting Sentry Island with his family when he spotted the bear near Hudson Bay charging towards one of his kids.
Frantically he sent them running back to their boat and put himself in between them and the animal.
The bear mauled Gibbons Tuesday evening around 7:30 and it was shot dead afterwards by another individual who ran onto the scene to help.
Nope. Not so cute, after all.
