Polar Bear Triplets Are A Thing Of The Past

2007 : Dr Stirling says that the phenomenon of a female giving birth to triplets is now part of history with usually only single cubs recorded. Soon, he says, the species may be extinct.


2010 : sightings from guides this summer included surprisingly “frequent sightings of polar bear mothers with triplets,” “In a recent blog post, Selden predicts “prodigious numbers of bears” this year based on unusually high summer sightings.”

    Is that James ‘Homer’ Hansen on the ice.?

    A “deeply regretful” Prof. Tim Flannery reminds Australians that we cannot control nature:
    “At the time of the first two coronial inquests I was a doctoral student in the biology department of a major Australian university, and my biases were such that I accepted Lindy Chamberlain’s guilt uncritically. Her religion was one factor…inferences of child sacrifice that did not strike me as beyond belief. At the time I was one of many Australian scientists fighting to keep creationism out of the classroom, and fundamentalist beliefs were seen as the enemy.”

    Stopping indiscriminate shooting of wildlife can cause population increases.

  6. Jimbo says:

    Is that soot in the ice I see?

    @Bill Pounder
    But Tim Flannery *always* makes decisions according to his biases at the time.
    And I guess the A$180,000 p.a. for 3 days a week helps.
