Usually, whatever aboriginal or indigenous people say about the environment is sacrosanct to environmentalists and government. However, when they disagree their knowledge is belittled and ignored. It is happening to the Inuit about polar bears.
Environmentalists and government claim polar bears are doomed because of global warming.Previously this (NCTCS) blog has written of the alarmists' shameful treatment of Mitch Taylor (see here and here.) Also, referred to peer -reviewed literature:
Relevant Paper: Monnett, C., and J. S. Gleason, 2006. Observations of mortality associated with extended open-water swimming by polar bears in the Alaskan Beaufort Sea. Polar Biology, 29, 681-687.
The paper states in it’s Discussion: “Our observation suggest that polar bears swimming in open waters near Kaktovik drowned during a period of high winds and correspondingly rough sea conditions between 10 and 13 September 2004. No other deleterious environmental conditions were present that might have led to the deaths of those polar bears.” And “We believe that the increased risk of swimming in open water is not likely to result simply from long distance swimming as polar bears are considered strong swimmers.”

An objective of the global warming/climate change hysteria is to suggest what is happening is abnormal. This is achieved by cherry-picking events and patterns that support that claim. When the entire pattern is included and the mechanism explained, people can see that what is happening is normal and similar to similar periods in history.
