Susan Crockford has a Lot to Say About Polar Bears

Susan Crockford has in the video below shown that the polar bear population that was forecast to decline rapidly during the fall in the Arctic polar ice has actually increased.     Here are some pics from that video.   Expecting a decline from 24,500 polar bears to 8100 is a big decline.   But as she showed the polar bears are quite resilient, rising in population to 30,000.  


The polar bear is the poster child or animal for AGW.  It is the cute animal that would love to rip a human apart just for lunch, but it can gain society's attention if it is under stress.   Showing how badly the models work, even the ice being less than expected, the bears increased in population in every location except where the ice was thicker in the Spring.

We should revisit occasionally what the proper role of government is.   As the constitution was a good sense of direction, we need a core set of principles to add in order to deal with the future.


So many want to engineer society, remove risk, assist certain groups, rather than let individuals thrive and raise communities.  Why?


Is Democracy where we all "get it good and hard" or is it the best means to a free society?


Should we roll with the special interests, or make the government achieve its proper role, what is that role, and how to do this?


When do deficits and governments become too large?


Government is becoming more elitist while trying to sell corrections to problems it created, what makes this possible?

Currently as a society, we are having a most difficult time discussing political issues.  What is driving this?   And why a rebirth in political culture would be a good thing.


Market Economy

Are "markets" dead as some would conjecture? Or is free enterprise what got us here?


Economic Theories

At the heart of economics there are several possible economic schools of thought, the essence of these schools of thought and how they relate to our lives.
