The Left’s endless campaign against Americanism has apparently been good for polar bears.

ICON-junkscienceExciting news about polar bears in eastern Canada: A peer-reviewed paper on the Davis Strait subpopulation study has finally been published in the Journal of Wildlife Management. It concludes that despite sea ice having declined since the 1970s, polar bear numbers in Davis Strait have not only increased to a greater density (bears per 1,000 km2) than other seasonal-ice subpopulations (like Western Hudson Bay), but may now have reached its carrying capacity.

This is great news. But where is the shouting from the roof-tops? The study was published online in February and in print in April.  No press release was issued that I could find and, consequently, there was no news coverage.

The day's ride over, and after setting up tents, hitting the showers, and making a run to a close-by store, it was time to relax.

He probably figured Jim and I would joke about what a pig he was eating that whole pie and decided to eat among strangers. Three hours later after sharing stories and remarking on a few coincidences that turned up here and there, Tom and one of the former strangers realized they were cousins, meeting in this most unlikely place for the first time. ~Mac
