Last Saturday polar bear poster child Knut died unexpectedly, much to the horror of viewers and fans internationally. Knut was only 4 years old. Polar bears normally live to be more than 30.
Of course, everyone is asking why. What was the cause of death?
Media reports say Knut had some sort of brain ailment. Activists are blaming it all on the Berlin Zoo.
German tabloid BILD claims that offcial cause of death was drowning. But Wolfgang Röhl at German blog achgut.com doesn’t buy it. He writes:
Please – since when do polar bears drown? No, there has got to be something else behind all of this. Professor Stefan Rahmstorf of Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, you’re on!”
Yes, the “experts” can clear up all of this – with an authoritive peer-reviewed paper, of course. The consensus is there after all; the science is done. Everybody today knows what every (bad) thing is caused by.
