It turns out -- as NewBuster Jake Gontesky reported on March 20 -- the picture was taken in August, “when every year the fringes of the Arctic ice cap melt regardless of the wider effects of global warming.” The photographer, Australian marine biology student Amanda Byrd, didn’t think the bears were in any jeopardy: They did not appear to be in danger…I did not see the bears get on the ice, and I did not see them get off. I cannot say either way if they were stranded or not. Denis Simard of Environment Canada agreed: You have to keep in mind that the bears are not in danger at all. This is a perfect picture for climate change…you have the impression they are in the middle of the ocean and they are going to die...But they were not that far from the coast, and it was possible for them to swim...They are still alive and having fun..

Global Warming Fraud - Polar Bears
Albert Gore, Jr. shows polar bears drowning. And it's your fault. You caused global warming that killed the innocent bears, according to Goracle. But it's not true. And the photo shown around the world as portraying polar bears endangered is misrepresented, according to the photographer. It was printed in the Sunday Telegraph (UK), It made it onto the front page of the New York Times. And the International Herald Tribune. It also ran in London's Daily Mail, The Times of London and Canada's Ottawa Citizen - and that's just to name a few. Newsbusters collected the facts, the lies, and the conveniently misunderstood.
