Another “Climate Science” Fail”- The Grolar Bear

A couple of months ago the ABC was all over the claim that declining Arctic ice due to “climate change” was causing polar bears to have more encounters with their grizzly cousins and that more hybrids were being seen. It turns out that the alleged “grolars”  were just blond grizzlies. Let’s not let the facts get in the way of the climate doom narrative.

From WUWT:

The unbearable lightness of polar bear ‘climate science’

From the “Emily Litella” department (never mind) and Zoologist Dr. Susan Crockford, comes yet another hilarious take-down of attempts to link polar bears and climate change last month. Turns out it’s just a blonde. Paging Andrew Derocher! Cleanup on aisle 5!

Dr. Crockford writes:

All the hubris last month about polar bear x grizzly hybrids, based on an unusual-looking bear killed near Arviat, has turned out to bewishful thinkingby those who’d like to blame everything to do with polar bears on climate change. An awful lot of “experts” now have egg on their faces.That “hybrid” was just a blonde grizzly, as I warned it might.
