Polar bear expert barred by global warmists
Polar bear numbers are higher than they were 30 years ago,
says world’s leading polar bear expert

27 Jun 09 - Over the coming days a curiously revealing event will be taking place in Copenhagen. Top of the agenda at a meeting of the Polar Bear Specialist Group will be the need to produce a suitably scary report on how polar bears are being threatened with extinction by man-made global warming.

But Dr. Mitchell Taylor, one of the world's leading experts on polar bears - who had obtained funding to attend this week’s meeting - has been told to stay away from the meeting because of his views on global warming.

Polar bear numbers, far from decreasing, are much higher than they were 30 years ago, insists Dr. Taylor, who has been researching the status and management of polar bears in Canada and around the Arctic Circle for 30 years, as both an academic and a government employee.

Of the 19 different bear populations, almost all are increasing or at optimum levels, only two have for local reasons modestly declined, says Taylor.

Dr Taylor was told that his views running "counter to human-induced climate change are extremely unhelpful". His signing of the Manhattan Declaration – a statement by 500 scientists that the causes of climate change are not CO2 but natural, such as changes in the radiation of the sun and ocean currents – was "inconsistent with the position taken by the PBSG".
