Media Ignores Al Gores Financial Ties To Global Warming
"there are huge dollars to be made from global warming alarmism. However, conceivably no one is better positioned to financially benefit from this scam than Dr. Global Warming himself, former Vice President Al Gore, a fact that the media will surely not share with Americans any time soon."

(Polar Bear) Population Estimates:

[Note: Figures given are for wild populations only.]

o 1965: About 10,000 (IUCN 1966)
o 1967: About 10,000 (Schuhmacher 1967)
o 1972: Roughly estimated at 20,000 (DeMaster & Stirling 1981)
o 1983: Perhaps 20,000 (Nowak & Paradiso 1983)
o 1996: 20,000 - 30,000 (Watson 1996)
o 1997: 22,000 - 27,000 (Garner 1997)
o 1998: 22,130 - 27,030 (Truett & Johnson 2002)
o 2001: At least 22,000 (Schliebe 2001)
o 2002: 21,500 - 25,000 (Lunn et al. 2002)
o 2005: 20,000 - 25,000 (Polar Bear Spec. Gr. 2005)
o 2006: 20,000 - 25,000 (IUCN 2006)

Significant depletion of polar bear populations, attributed to over-hunting, occurred in Greenland and the Soviet Arctic beginning in the 1930's. Polar bear populations in Alaska, USA declined in the late 1960s and early 1970s in response to excessive hunting with the use of aircraft. As a result of the population losses of polar bears due to over-hunting, an international agreement was reached between the five nations with polar bears (Canada, Norway, USA, the former USSR and Denmark, which governed Greenland at that time). These nations signed the "International Agreement on the Conservation of Polar Bears" in 1973, which prohibits unregulated hunting and outlaws the hunting of the bears from aircraft and icebreakers. The agreement also obligates each nation to protect polar bear denning sites and migration routes, as well as to undertake, and share information on, polar bear research. This agreement and the resulting actions by the signatory nations were responsible for the recovery of the polar bear. The total polar bear population is generally considered to have remained stable since the 1980's.
