So, what if a man went to the Arctic Circle to write about how the Polar bear population was being decimated by global warming, only to find out that Polar Bears are more numerous than in the 1970′s? Clearly this can be nothing more than a seething hatred for Al gore. This man Zac Unger clearly does not want Gore to eke out a living by travelling the globe in private jets to tell people the Polar Bears are vanishing!
Author Zac Unger was originally drawn to the arctic circle to write a “mournful elegy” about how global warming was decimating the polar bear populations. He was surprised to find that the polar bears were not in such dire straits after all.
“There are far more polar bears alive today than there were 40 years ago,” Unger told NPR in an interview about his new book, “Never Look a Polar Bear in The Eye.” “There are about 25,000 polar bears alive today worldwide. In 1973, there was a global hunting ban. So once hunting was dramatically reduced, the population exploded.”
“This is not to say that global warming is not real or is not a problem for the polar bears,” Unger added. “But polar bear populations are large, and the truth is that we can’t look at it as a monolithic population that is all going one way or another.”
Oh come on Zac, give Al a break, I mean he is struggling to make ends meet. Just look at the hovel he is forced to live in
