Say, Remember That Cannibal Polar Bear Story? Yeah, About That

Live Science, not exactly a Climate Realist site, has this

“In general, observations of cannibalism may be consistent with the idea that as bears become more nutritionally stressed due to sea ice loss —which there is evidence for in some parts of the Arctic —they will seek out alternative food sources,” Regehr said. “However, the bears [in this study] were all in pretty good body condition. A fat bear wouldn’t be very motivated to risk attacking another polar bear just for food. So, we should certainly be cautious in interpreting these observations and remain open to other explanations.”

Stirling agreed. “We do not have the information to separate those two possibilities.”

So, they were pretty much failing to practice science, just throwing blame out. And, even if true, it still wouldn’t prove AGW.

    And this is more like scientists we all want to hear from. No evidence? Well then its not fact….they are pretty much saying that while yes…….A is true that does not automatically make B the follow up truth.

    Unlike AGW which says…..Its getting hotter therefore is CO2 and man causing it all…..do not argue with us…the science is settle…….please sign on the dotted line and hand us over more money please.

    A: It was a MALE poley eatin’ on the youngun.
    B: There was an annoyed female poley sighted in the area.

    Conclusion: Male poley wanted to mate, but his intended had a cub fathered by another male. So he killed it.

    Happens all the time.
