Physicist, Willie Soon, Not Paid by Greenpeace

I do not write papers because ExxonMobil or Greenpeace pays me to, but because my academic researches demonstrate that the sun, not carbon dioxide, is the chief driver of Arctic temperatures.  Read more here.

    So we are back again to the same statement that polar bears have survived through former warming periods.

    I got this reply from the Norwegian Polar Institute and their polar bear expert from the IUCN Polar Bear Specialist Group :

    ” Polar bears have survived through warmer periods than now , and they may survive as a species through a new warming period. But most of them will probably disappear from most /many areas.”

    And this Soon guy , is the one that Dr . Derocher made a comment on ” that he had never seen a polar bear alive in its natural habit”.

    Who said anything about polar bears – the title of the post is the socialist slur made by Greenpeace.

    Dear Louis,

    If you would bother to read the entire article , you would see that he starts again the PB rant….

    And what about this obsession with Greenpeace , I must say that it’s amazing that a bunch of hippies and hip-hopers have made a fortune from fundrising, very clever , so it’s strange that others haven’t been better!

    Ann, Lots of information on climate and bears here:
    Effects_of_Climatic_Fluctuations_on_Polar_Bears_in_Greenland . Which bits do you disagree with?

    I did bother to read the article so maybe it is you who started the PB rant.

    What’s the fuss about if a company wants to develop an area they must pay for the environment impact studies. It’s what responsible companies do and it does not mean that the study is biased.
