I'm beginning to think that polar bears are behind the global warming myth. After all! What a great way to attract more prey to the area: Hypocrisy is becoming a little hard to bear - POOR Belle. Here's a polar bear that never got to taste a global warming hypocrite, served fresh. Oh, I can imagine how Belle's mouth ran to see the welcoming committee of journalists assembled for her this week on the coast of northern Iceland. She'd have been hungry, of course, having sailed an ice floe over from Greenland and then swum to shore.

Bears floating to Iceland "could lend credence to warnings from experts that climate change is creating a more perilous environment for the majestic Arctic animals," wailed an AFP stringer... Don't mention that the US National Snow and Ice Data Centre says the extent of Arctic ice is in fact "greater than this time last year". Don't mention that polar bears are growing in number, not shrinking... And especially don't mention that the world hasn't warmed since 1998. [h/t: Lucianne]
