Polar Bear Expert’s Book Goes Global As Demand Grows For Science De-Indoctrination

No doubt today there’s a huge demand for science de-indoctrination – especially among children – in a variety of fields, ranging from nutrition, climate science, economics and even eugenics (still!).

Government corruption of the sciences is as old as civilization itself. It will never go away and so the best we can hope for is to keep fighting it as best we can. The most powerful and most feared weapon of course is the truth.

Professional zoologist and polar bear expert Dr. Susan Crockford’s book for children, Polar Bears – Facts and Myths, makes a valuable contribution to this effort. For almost a decade the polar bear has been used by climate alarmists as the poster child for spreading fear over a melting Arctic and species extinction.

Although the book is targeted at children age 7 to 10, many adults and political leaders could also learn a lot and profit from it.

The ideal Christmas present: Dr. Susan J. Crockford’s book is now available in both French and German. Image of German book cropped from Amazon.

Facts only, “without appeal to emotion”

The book is a real eye-opener as it dispels 8 common myths surrounding polar bears. Little wonder the book is a real threat to the junk-science purveyors and indoctrinators at our nations’ schools. The book will certainly encourage children to think critically and to question some of the science orthodoxy we see in climate. The parents of kids who bring this book to school should not be surprised if they get a letter from administrators.

What compelled Crockford to write this children’s book? The Canadian zoologist had seen more politicization of polar bear science than she could take, she wrote in an e-mail. Over the last two years Crockford has given talks about polar bears to many school children. “The kids and their teachers have all been astonished to learn how many polar bears still exist in the world as of 2015: they have all been led to believe that perhaps only a few hundred bears now survive,” Crockford said.

“I felt it was important to produce a book for this age group, and their teachers and parents, that presents the science about polar bears and declining Arctic sea ice without an appeal to emotion,” she wrote.

The book has since been translated into the French and the German and is readily available at Amazon. With the Christmas season approaching, what better present to give a child or global warming alarmist?

Susan Crockford is a professional zoologist who has studied polar bear ecology and evolution for more than 20 years. She also runs the blog about polar bears called www.polarbearscience.com.

    “With the Christmas season approaching, what better present to give a child or global warming alarmist?”

    Is there any difference? 🙂

    Actually it’s great that there are books like this coming out. There is so much indoctrination going on (and for a long, long time: in California in the early 1960s we were getting the tree-hugging brainwashings too).

    Some of the papers my son had to write (including one for his Abi IIRC) expected “party line” responses. No surprise, considering that BW is now run by the Greens…

    💯 Nice one Susan. Love yur honest work.

    Warmists must hate her, especially now that she’s got a kids book out to tell them the truth about polar bears. Just don’t make a mistake and get the wrong book for the little tikes, even though it might be a more effective anti-propaganda tool.

    Great website, too.

    She is the leading name in communicating the truth about polar bear populations and behavior and has to be at the top of the list of the many dedicated people that have worked to discover and get the facts out. The result is that the Polar Bear, once the leading animal icon of the alarmists, has lost it’s effectiveness as a symbol for them. Another alarmist “canary in the coal mine”, still happily chirping away.

    Nota bene. ‘Climate Otter’ is not Dr. Crockford.

      *blink* where did that come from?

      1. yonason

        It was well worth it, though.

        And I’m especially appreciative of this comment on Carbon Brief…
        https://wattsupwiththat.com/2016/12/14/more-polar-non-science/#comment-2372796
        …because that comment details it’s activism. It will be helpful the next time some Griff-like ignoramus troll tries to use them as “proof” of our being wrong about anything. (Yes, SebastianH, I’m looking at you!)

        1. ClimateOtter

          Oh right!

          I guess I should have used quotations, yes?

          1. yonason

            Looks like you started to, and then like I sometimes do, forgot to put them at the end of the quote, before you started commenting on it. But I think it was clear enough where their propaganda left of, and your commentary began. So, it would have helped, but wasn’t a major blunder or anything, IMO.

  6. clipe

    Oh! Great take-down of ‘Griff’.

    The problem is that this book will not find its way into school libraries.

    Unless a parent buys the book, it is unlikely that many children will get to read it.

    Shame!

      Richard,

      There are more than parents: family friends, grandparents, aunts, uncles.

      Alternative schools might be very happy to have it.

      Many folks who are unhappy with the school treatment of these issues are either home-schooling their children, have them in alternative schools or supplement their education at home.

      With a good book, there is hope.

        Not being an aficionado of Polar Bears, I don’t read much about them, but when I do it’s at your website. And I have thoroughly enjoyed what I’ve read there. Thanks for your well written and informative work.

      2. Kenneth Richard

        Dr. Crockford:

        I am interested in what you think of these two articles written about polar bears surviving in Arctic temperatures 19 C warmer than today during the Pliocene, sea-ice-free conditions during the Early Holocene, and about the fact that most reconstructions don’t have the Canadian Arctic (where most polar bears live) even warming at all in the last few hundred years.

          Kenneth,

          It is my opinion, as an evolutionary zoologist, that polar bears evolved millions of years ago.

          See this post: http://polarbearscience.com/2012/08/19/is-it-plausible-that-polar-bears-are-4-5-million-years-old-part-1/

          The glacial period before the Eemian, the Riss (or Illinoian) glaciation (130-200kya, MIS 6) was quite severe and the created the most likely conditions for polar bears to evolve from brown bears.

          Temperature is not the critical factor for polar bear survival, it is ice. See this post: http://polarbearscience.com/2013/11/12/eemian-excuses-the-warm-was-different-then-polar-bears-were-fine/

          Evidence suggests the cold and extensive ice of the last glacial period (the Last Glacial Maximum) had a more negative impact on polar bear survival than did the Eemian, despite the low sea ice levels of that warmer period.

          http://polarbearscience.com/2015/04/21/polar-bears-barely-survived-the-sea-ice-habitat-changes-of-the-last-ice-age-evidence-suggests/

          All I have time for at the moment.

            Susan,
            Out of interest,as an
            “evolutionary” zoologist,
            have you ever observed any organism manage to somehow increase the information within it’s genome, so as to actually evolve?

          2. Susan Crockford

            Oops! in my response to Kenneth, I said:

            “It is my opinion, as an evolutionary zoologist, that polar bears evolved millions of years ago.”

            I meant the opposite! Should have read: “It is my opinion, as an evolutionary zoologist, that polar bears DID NOT evolve millions of years ago.”

            Sorry for the confusion, it’s been a rough few days for me with an illness in the family.

            Susan

            Ahha! The Polar Bear evolution thing is one topic I read about with great interest over at Dr. Crockford’s website.
